For owners of smaller businesses that don’t necessitate renting out the entire floor of a high-rise building, coworking spaces have long been a blessing, offering affordable rates for just the key elements that a business needs to run. But coworking spaces have gone through a renaissance of sorts in the last five years. Stuffy office buildings packed with beige walls and rows of cubicles have been replaced by bright spaces boasting modern furniture, flexible floor plans, updated technology and cutting-edge amenities. Amid these shared spaces making the leap into the modern era, WORKSUITES has transformed itself into a modern, professional workplace that leaves distractions behind.

WORKSUITES has been around since 2001, under its previous name, Meridian Business Centers. With the change of name came a change of everything else. WORKSUITES changed its focus, its design and its business model to successfully walk the fine line between what makes a workspace lively and fun, and what makes a workspace actually productive.

While making shared spaces more modern is generally a good thing, too much of it may have an adverse effect on how we humans work together and how productive we can actually be. Beanbag chairs, foosball tables and pop music are certainly very “Silicon Valley,” but many are finding themselves yearning for coworking spaces to tone it down a bit.

“We have a lot of people that come to us from our competitors because they said it was too loud; they couldn’t get any work done there,” said Tosha Bontrager, a manager at the Plano WORKSUITES. “I like to say that we’re coworking for grown ups. We focus more on private, productive, professional co-working.”

With 18 Texas locations scattered across Houston, Dallas, Plano and Fort Worth, the company has given its business-centric clients exactly what they need and what they want for almost two decades. Businesses are living, breathing entities that constantly require adaptation. WORKSUITES has developed a model that can accommodate the needs of businesses of all sizes, but really caters to the start-up company.

“If you have an idea for a new business, we can have you up and running in 48 hours. We give you a business address, business phone number, answer your calls, schedule your conference rooms and give you access to anything you would need to run your new business,” Tosha said. “All you have to do is pick your office and sign up.”

A small business may only need a little help securing a mailing address and the occasional meeting space, whereas a larger business may require multiple private offices, receptionists, parcel service and more. WORKSUITES charges customers a fee based on their specific needs, and not based on a flat-rate plan.

The newest WORKSUITES location, just off Tennyson Parkway in Plano, is the culmination of years of design and forethought. Large windows and an easy-going atmosphere balance perfectly with necessary personal space and privacy. The office has a mature ambiance, without being stuffy or dated. It’s quiet, but relaxed. Most importantly, it has up-to-date IT infrastructure to make sure no business professional struggles with bandwidth or has a conference call dropped. And the full support team accessible to every resident proves that WORKSUITES is one of the only co-working spaces in DFW fully committed to helping its clients grow.

WORKSUITES will hold a Grand Opening Celebration for its newest Plano location on Thursday, June 14 from 4:00-6:30 p.m. Stop by for a free tacos and margaritas, as well as a tour of the offices. Please RSVP for the free event here.
