IWG has signed its first franchise agreement in Scotland in order to meet growing demand for flexible workspaces.
The new agreement will service suburbs and towns in the Central Belt area to shorten lengthy commutes to cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow. The deal will include three centers in Lanarkshire, which will open between now and 2024.
IWG has noted a spike in flexible office demand, specifically seeing a 20% to 25% increase in inquiries for its centers during the last quarter.
The franchise expansion will see partnerships with Tommy Nevin, an experienced franchisee in the area; Graeme Orr, a project management consultant; as well as Tony McCabe and Scott Gibson, both operations directors.
