ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–THRIVE | Coworking, a flexible workspace solution with a commitment to philanthropy and community involvement, today announced the acquisition of the Coworking Station in Holly Springs, NC. Holly Springs is an attractive location for THRIVE’s next Coworking location because the office is 100% occupied with a waiting list as a result of the area growing 45% over the past ten years.
“The Coworking Station in Holly Springs reminded the team of its first location in Alpharetta in a walkable suburban town outside a major metropolitan area — and the location supports our mission to build community,” says THRIVE Co-founder and CEO Ramon Gonzalez. “Our business is built by people and our goal is to grow with purpose while creating an impact in each city we open. Downtown Holly Springs is the quintessential small Southern town that is welcoming with a positive work/life balance, and the acquisition of the Coworking Station puts THRIVE another location closer to our goal of 500 purpose-driven coworking spaces.”
Located on the second floor of The Block on Main at 300 S. Main St. in Downtown Holly Springs, THRIVE | Holly Springs offers a variety of memberships designed to meet the needs of both large and small enterprises, as well as independent entrepreneurs, freelancers and students. Featuring flex desks, designated desks, private offices, mailboxes, day pass, and multiple meeting rooms all with 24/7/365 access, THRIVE’s inspired hybrid workspace experience delivers purpose, flexibility and collaboration. As part of THRIVE, Holly Springs gains a roster of special events, including monthly catered breakfasts, lunches and happy hours, as well as adventures and outings (anything from hikes to hang gliding).
Close to Research Triangle Park and Raleigh, Holly Springs has grown into a global bio-manufacturing hub while still retaining its small-town charm, and often makes lists as one of the top places in North Carolina to live, raise a family, get a job, and for safety.
