8 Local Experts Share Why They Picked an Office Suite Style Environment to Grow Their Business
An executive suite setting is an all-inclusive office space that provides everything your business needs without any of the hassles, from fully furnished spaces to coffee and meeting rooms.
Many people have started out in their living rooms or at the kitchen table, but with time, their businesses grew and they needed a proper setup while others have more space than their business can accommodate. That’s when an executive office suite environment is perfect for the business. So whether you are looking to have a dedicated office or looking to reduce the costs of your office operations, an all-exclusive office environment would be a perfect fit. They allow the clients to share the overhead costs, which are associated with the upkeep of the offices with the other occupants who use the same office space.
Here are 8 small business experts weighing in on why they chose to use an executive office suite environment for their business instead of a traditional commercial space:

“We chose an office suite environment because we were a small business at the time. The phone support and professional environment were important for setting the image that we wished to convey to our clients.”

Jay Alderson (Property and Casualty Specialist) MetLife Auto and Home
“The reason why I decided to open my Insurance Agency in an office suite style environment was because of the location and the cost. Having a suite saved me a ton of money out of pocket by having all of your services included at a low monthly cost and I did not have the upfront expense of purchasing office furniture and equipment or hiring staff. Having a Suite has allowed me to spend more money on marketing, which has allowed me to grow my Insurance Agency by leaps and bounds!”

C.J. Meese, Business Development Associates Inc.
“The value of an executive office suite environment is you only need to invest in the amount of space and the number of services you need to grow your business. Additionally, first rate executive suites offer attractive conference rooms so you can look truly professional when meeting with clients at your office.”

David Crump, Employee Benefits Consulting Co.
“We chose an office suite environment initially for location when it first opened. We have stayed because of the professional atmosphere and the level of competency and customer service that has been afforded to us. We have found that the staff of the office suite has gone out of its way more than a few times to accommodate our needs as they have come up. It was important to our business to have a staff that was professional, courteous and helpful. An office suite environment is a great place do business.”

Sharon Adair (Director of Member Services) Alliance for Toll Interoperability
“The driving point for the Alliance for Toll Interoperability (ATI) as a small non-profit was the need for a professional environment in which to have meetings. The flexibility of hours, room sizes and types along the adjusted cost was ideal since we only require use of the space a few times in a year. Prior to discovering the option of an office suite, we were challenged by needing a physical address, meeting space and limited financial resources. An office suite is also beneficial as we do not have to worry over the security & maintenance of an unused or primarily vacant site. All of the small companies that we have brought to the office space in the past 2 years have gone home looking for a similar solution in their area. With the capabilities of modern technology and the increase of employees working from home or from the road, many small businesses are looking for either a physical office or virtual office option as a better fit for office needs & expenses.”
Alliance for Toll Interoperability promotes and implements interstate interoperability for the benefit of customers and member agencies. For more information, please visit tollinterop.org or call 919-441-6542.
