Regus Franchise Opportunities - History
Mark Dixon, a traveling English businessman, saw a hole in the market for spaces outside of hotels for out of town business people to do their work. In 1989, he opened his first Regus building in Brussels, Belgium. Since the business is all about helping companies find the space to work wherever they travel, Regus office spaces have since sprung up all around the world.
