  • A franchisee should be looking forward to achieving circa. 30 – 35% return on their initial capital investment, with payback in 3 – 4 years, but our Franchise Agreement is a 20 year term meaning the franchise partner will have the ability to build multi-unit franchise business delivering strong cash returns over a long-term business plan.

IWG Monument office


IWG has established a comprehensive support platform that provides franchise operators with:

IWG Ealing

  • The core of our business is office-based business therefore the franchisee will have a very small team of between 1 and 3 people permanently office based, but it is flexible and our Franchise Partners can lead & manage the business both on-site and off-site as many of our systems can be accessed remotely.
  • We’re currently operating more than 300 centres across the UK and many more globally, the majority of our own centres are located in central London and across more than 120 towns & cities of the UK.
  • We still have lots of white space to grow and we work with our Franchisees to select the areas that fit most with their requirements and to meet demand now and into the future.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for ambitious and driven partners who want to be part of an international branded network and benefit from replicating a proven model through utilising the established processes.

By owning a franchise, previous self-starters will be able to maximise the performance of their locations and will have the leadership qualities required to push their centre teams to drive sales and keep their customers satisfied – two key parts of running an IWG location.

You should be passionate about the brand but also the sector as a whole – we are already seeing significant shifts in the way people are working with employers and employees alike recognising the benefits of working in a shared office environment.
