FRANCHISING – A new 15,000-square-foot Venture X workspace facility is under construction in the Apex Entertainment Center in Marlborough, MA, and will be the latest addition to the ever-increasing family of Venture X locations throughout the United States. Construction began in late July, and according to Ryan Gagne, franchisee owner of the nearly $1.5 million facility, an official opening is tentatively scheduled for early December.
“This is a perfect location for a Venture X shared workspace location,” commented Gagne. “There is a growing millennial population near the Apex Center, and coupled with ease of access, the location will provide young professionals an outstanding place to conduct business, network, and enjoy social activities. Many local residents who currently work in Boston will be attracted to the flexible membership options which will allow them to work closer to home and avoid the lengthy daily commute whenever they chose.”
Located within the sprawling work-play-live complex, there is an 80,000-square-foot entertainment center, which is home to numerous hospitality, entertainment, and service businesses, including nearly a dozen eateries. The complex also houses a pair of brand-name hotels, two gymnasiums, a bowling alley, a fitness center, a swim school, an entertainment center with go-carts, a golf simulator, and more. The shared office spaces will complete the vision for the Apex center to meet the business needs of members who will have amenities that include high-speed Internet service, conference rooms to hold weekly events, secure 24/7 keycard access, and office supplies and equipment. The member’s per-month tier pricing is based on community, virtual office, shared desk, and dedicated office space options.
“We will be occupying the entire top floor of the building and that will provide a picturesque landscape view of western Massachusetts,” commented Gagne. “A large portion of the office space will be able to enjoy majestic views of seasonal New England.”
United Franchise Group is noted for offering its brands tremendous resources and support—a key reason why Gagne chose to join them as a brand of choice. “Knowing the reputation of Venture X and the explosive growth it has enjoyed made it an easy decision for me,” he said. “Being new to a franchise-type business, I know that I can count on their support to ensure the success of this location.”
