Franchise Interviews Meets with the WorkLodge Franchise Opportunity

We are meeting with Mike Thakur of the Work Lodge franchise opportunity.  The Work Lodge designs, operates and grows all-inclusive work spaces.  According to a recent study, shared workspaces have grown at an incredible rate of 200% over the past five years.

Their mission is to create environments that inspire, empower, and enable our members to do work that changes lives...including theirs.”

Mike Thakur understands how to create healthy environments that lead to success in the workplace. After moving to Houston 14 years ago from the United Kingdom, Mike decided to utilize his degree in Theology Studies and launched a church with his wife. While on his journey, he went to work for a security company specializing in kidnapping for ransom and extortion. Because of the line of work, there was no central office, so Mike began to explore shared office spaces. Once he found one, it felt like solitary confinement. He knew there was demand for energized coworking workspaces and immediately began to look for real estate in Houston to open his own. Mike soon after stepped down from his security role and founded WorkLodge in 2015.

In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising Podcast.
