[9:47] Jason explains how United Franchise Group is involved with the Venture X brand.
[11:27] Venture X is a high-end, shared workplace franchise.
[12:57] To Jason’s knowledge, Venture X is the only opportunity in coworking that isn’t split ownership (i.e. all franchises, no corporate).
[18:01] Some of the differentiators between Venture X and it’s competitors include high-grade furniture, larger work spaces, and soundproof barriers between other offices.
[20:10] Venture X is targeting a variety of different spaces and locations to provide better access to more potential tenants.
[21:43] Jason shares that what a lot of their franchisees like that they provide for the coworking industry is their readily available data that is documented through third-party resources.
[23:52] Currently, Venture X has 21 locations open and about 84 sold to be open. These numbers encompass 26 countries across the globe, but they are still looking to expand in the US as well.
[28:05] Jason would encourage any potential franchisors to ask themselves why it is they think franchising their business is the answer.
