Co-working spaces are more popular than ever, making now an excellent time to consider opening a serviced office franchise in Australia. While at Venture X we believe that our strong training program can help prepare professionals from many different backgrounds for running one of our co-working spaces, those franchisees with a background in the hospitality sector may find themselves particularly well-prepared for the job. Here’s a quick look at how your hospitality industry experience could mean a smooth transition into running a co-working space.
Dedication to Customer Service
Just as in a hotel or a restaurant, customer satisfaction is an important component of our business at Venture X. The product we are offering is a comfortable and productive work environment that freelancers and entrepreneurs can utilize when they need it. Keeping our customers coming back hinges on offering them a positive experience at every turn. If you’ve already mastered the art of customer service and satisfaction, you may find that running a serviced office franchise in Australia is easier than it sounds.
Cultivating a Welcoming Atmosphere
At Venture X, we pride ourselves on the creative and comfortable atmospheres we’ve developed in each of our franchise locations. A far cry from the stuffy white offices and cubicles of the past, our locations stand out due to the incorporation of modern art, bold colors, rich wood grain, and more. If you have experience cultivating a welcoming atmosphere in the hospitality industry, you may find that keeping your Venture X location looking sleek and inviting requires the same skillset.
Just like running a hotel, Venture X co-working spaces rely on efficient scheduling in order to keep track of reservations. Because each of our clients requires a unique space and time slot, it’s important that our franchisees are especially organized when it comes to creating and maintaining schedules. Our clients love that when they sign up with Venture X, they can access the space they need when they need it. With a variety of workspaces and time commitments to choose from, we have plans to suit the needs of just about any professional in need of a place to work. This flexibility is an important part of running a serviced office franchise in Australia.
As you can see, there are many similarities between the skillsets needed in the hospitality industry, and running a serviced office franchise in Australia. Contact us today to learn more about becoming a Venture X franchisee!

Open for Business
As the franchise owner, you’ll get to decide what hours you’d like your co-working space to be open. In the morning, you or one of your trusted staff members will be first on-site to open for the day. Your location will be centrally-located, near public transportation hubs and car parks. The location of your co-working franchise will make it easier than ever for you and your clients to access your business. When you franchise a co-working space with Venture X, our experts will help you find just the right location.
Get Ready for the Day
You and your trusted staff will get ready for the day by preparing the cafe area for business, reviewing your day’s schedule, and making sure that all of your networks and other infrastructure are ready to go. One of the best parts of renting a Venture X co-working space is that clients know they’ll find everything they need in order to be productive. Whether it’s a strong cup of coffee or a fast internet connection, our co-working spaces have what it takes to keep clients coming back.
Check-In With Our Online Portal
One of the best parts about deciding to franchise a co-working space with Venture X is the ongoing support you can expect to receive. One of our primary methods of support is our online portal, which allows franchisees to stay up-to-date on new developments in the company, and to keep them refreshed on company-wide policies and procedures. Checking in with our online portal helps our franchisees stay in the loop and on top of their game.
Attend to Your Customers
Stay in-touch with the customers who rent out co-working spaces at your location. Checking in with them from time to time is a great way to show them that you care about their productivity, and want to make sure their experience in your location is positive.
These are just a few key responsibilities for those who decide to franchise a co-working space with Venture X. Contact us today to learn more about becoming a franchisee!
At Venture X, we want to make it easier than ever to franchise a co-working space. Here are some of the key parts of the process of starting your own co-working space franchise.
Request More Info and Initial Conversation
When you reach out to us by calling or requesting more information online, we’ll set up a time to talk. During our initial conversation, we’ll learn a little bit more about you and your goals. It’s important to consider what you hope to accomplish by opening a co-working space franchise of your own, and how any prior experience you have will help you towards this goal. We’ll also tell you a little bit more about our company, and we’ll decide together how well our goals align.
Review Disclosure Document and Sign Agreement
After we’ve taken a few more steps to get to know each other better and to determine if you meet the financial requirements, we’ll give you a copy of our franchise disclosure document to review. The disclosure document will give you all of the information you’ll need to make an informed decision about franchising with our company. Read it carefully and ask any questions you may have. Once you’ve reviewed the disclosure document, you’ll sign an agreement, pay your initial franchise fees, and officially become a Venture X franchisee!
Once you’ve signed the agreement, it’s off to two weeks of training at our headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA. During your training in the U.S., you’ll learn everything you’ll need to know in order to operate your location, including all of our policies and procedures. By the time you return to your location in Australia, you’ll understand what steps to take before you open your doors.
The help from our headquarters doesn’t end there. You’ll enjoy the support of a corporate representative in your location as you prepare to open your doors. They’ll provide you with on-site training, and help you to apply what you learned in West Palm Beach to your Australian location. You’ll also be able to take advantage of marketing supports such as a PR campaign, and online and printed marketing materials. Although our headquarters is in the USA, we also have support staff based here in Australia who are always just a phone call or email away when you have questions or need guidance.
These are just a few of the key steps in the process of opening your own Venture X franchise. Reach out to us today to learn more about what it takes to franchise a co-working space!
