New York based Serendipity Labs Coworking is announcing today that Renascent Hospitality, an award-winning hotel management and development company of first class hotels, has signed on as a franchisee of the national coworking chain. Renascent will open four Labs throughout Columbus, Ohio beginning in 2017.
“Columbus is ready for a coworking option that appeals to established business professionals, while providing the level of service and hospitality they expect,” says Scott Somerville, President and Principal of Renascent. “We look forward to offering a modern and sophisticated workplace solution with Serendipity Labs that meets the exacting standards of the Columbus business community.”
Serendipity Labs offers upscale and flexible workplace communities to Members from a cross section of industries. Benefits include reducing long term office lease obligations, escaping a home office or finding a secure work environment without adding to their commute.
“Columbus has seen tremendous growth over the last few years, with good reason. Companies see the enormous potential in everything from the central location, to the talent pool and resources available,” says John Arenas, CEO of Serendipity Labs. “As about 45% of our Members are employees of established companies who have the monthly membership paid by their organization, 20% start-ups and 35% independent professionals, we think Serendipity Labs is the perfect fit for Columbus’ fast-moving business environment.”
Each Columbus Lab will be managed by Renascent to Serendipity Labs’ stringent brand standards, and offer coworking access, day passes, dedicated workstations, private offices and team room memberships. The lounge, Lab café and meetup rooms untether Members from a solitary desk and give them options that encourage creativity and collaboration. Renascent will also curate a full schedule of day-time and evening programs designed to enrich the membership experience, extending beyond the work day.
Columbus, OH based Renascent Hospitality was selected because of its commitment to excellence and quality. Renascent has, for the fifth year running, been named a Top 100 Hotel Management & Development Company by leading hospitality publications. “We are thrilled to have Renascent as our partner. They understand the Columbus market, and with their award-winning hospitality background we are confident they can deliver on our brand promises,” adds Arenas.
