About Us

Our Mission Statement

Beachworx founder, Steven Franco, early on identified a need for short term coworking space and private offices for individuals, small businesses, and corporations. Steven envisioned a state of the art workplace, constantly innovative, to provide the very best office environment.

Most important are the people, the members, as they are the foundation of Beachworx’s program to provide them with the finest services at a nominal cost. Untold hours were spent in thoughtful planning to provide a comprehensive list of office services and amenities many of which are gratis.

Beachworx is open 8:00 am to 6:00 pm (with extended after hours options available), Monday thru Friday and we want to make sure our members and guests have an extraordinary work experience every day they are here.

We are very pleased to present a list of comprehensive office services at a nominal cost while providing a work environment that far exceeds any facility of its kind. We welcome any questions you may have and will strive to answer them fully.

Remember we are state of the art and offer big cost savings, lots of amenities, impeccable service, and do not require long term lease agreements. So please come aboard and join Beachworx!
