More from Regus

Workers in an Office

1989 was the year visionary entrepreneur, Mark Dixon, set about revolutionising the world of work, launching the pioneering Regus Group from his base in Brussels, Belgium. In the intervening years, and in response to changing market dynamics and customer demand, new brands have been added to the business through acquisition and organic growth, culminating in the creation of parent company, IWG plc, in 2016.

For more than 30 years, we’ve helped businesses find and create the perfect workspace for their people. Our extensive network of locations enables companies of all sizes to work wherever and however they need, and has created a global business community of 2.5 million people, including some of the most successful entrepreneurs, individuals and multi-million-dollar corporations.

We are able to provide solutions to match every kind of business and work style.

What do we do?

We create personal, financial and strategic value for businesses of every size by providing companies and individuals with the workspace that’s right for them.

  • OFFICE SPACE - Take your pick from our vast network of fully managed offices and tailor the space to your own unique requirements.
  • COWORKING - Looking for more flexibility? Why not use our workspaces on an on-demand basis, accessing any part of our network as and when you need it.
  • VIRTUAL OFFICE - Our Virtual Office service gives you a professional business address and local phone number along with mail handling, call answering and admin support.
  • MEETING ROOMS - Pitching to a prospective client? Training your sales team? Presenting to the board? We have the perfect meeting spaces, whatever you need them for.
  • FLEXIBLE WORKING PLANS - Choose from our range of membership plans and access our offices, coworking spaces and business lounges in whatever way suits you best.

How do we support our franchisees?

Regus has established a comprehensive support platform that provides franchise operators with:

  • Access to the full use of its extensive suite of proprietary systems and tools
  • Global customer support
  • Full marketing platform including website and app with set up and management for listing of Regus locations
  • Ability to leverage Regus’ international sales and marketing channels including our network of global corporate accounts
  • Provision of a customisable marketing plan
  • Access to a suite of customisable marketing templates including signage, events, advertising, sales collateral, PR materials and Regus stationery
  • Regular review by the Regus team of the marketing plan
  • Staff recruitment and training

What makes a good franchisee?

We are looking for ambitious and driven partners who want to be part of an international branded network and benefit from replicating a proven model through utilising the established processes.

By owning a franchise, previous self-starters will be able to maximise the performance of their locations and will have the leadership qualities required to push their centre teams to drive sales and keep their customers satisfied – two key parts of running an Regus location.

You should be passionate about the brand but also the sector as a whole – we are already seeing significant shifts in the way people are working with employers and employees alike recognising the benefits of working in a shared office environment.
