IWG OPENS ITS FIRST FLEXIBLE WORKING SPACE IN NORTH QUEENSLAND
IWG, the world’s leader of flexible workspaces, has opened a new Regus centre in Townsville, Queensland. The Regus office is the first of 10 ‘flexspaces’ centres as part of IWG’s franchise with the Adams Group in September 2020.
It will extend IWG’s footprint into areas where demand for flexible office space among local businesses and entrepreneurs is increasing. The total area for the centre is 700sqm+ with several 2, 4, 6+ workstation offices available to lease. The first customers commenced moving into the centre in June.
Life Legal, a Family Law firm based in Townsville, was one of the first businesses to move into the space. Kerrie Stuart and Natasha Busby were looking for a modern, easy to get to office space that had all the amenities.
“Regus was a perfect fit for us,” said Kerrie Stuart. “Our employees are looking forward to enjoying the flexibility offered by Regus within this brand-new centre.”
“The franchise concept offers our partners the unique opportunity to make an attractive, high-yield investment with the know-how of the market leader and their local expertise,” said Mark Bhardwaj, IWG’s Head of Partnership Growth in Australia and New Zealand. “We want to create a true global and national network – and that’s where franchising comes in. The market is moving fast. We need to move faster and faster, and we want to find franchise partners who can help us dial up the pace of the growth of our brands,” he said.
