Shared office space opens in Maumelle – Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Inc.

The business styles itself as a “collaborative shared coworking space” that provides small businesses and entrepreneurs an alternative to working from home.

The 2,000-square-foot space has three levels of offices, including shared desks available on a first-come, first-serve basis and that can be leased for little more than a month and dedicated desks for people who want a little more permanence. There are six private offices.

Jolt Office Hub founder John McCarley, 34, said similar shared office spaces are sprouting like “Starbucks.”

“What we are really doing is focusing more on stay-at-home business or work-from-home people, independent contractors or people that work remotely that really need their own place to work that isn’t their house,” he said.
