Opus Virtual Offices helps home-based franchises maintain a professional presence, appearance while keeping overhead low

(PR NewsChannel) / January 27, 2016 / BOCA RATON, Fla. 

Opus Virtual OfficesBy all indicators, the U.S. economy is on an upswing, and few sectors have experienced as much growth as the franchise market. According to Entrepreneur magazine, a total of 9,695 new franchises were opened in North America between July 2014 and July 2015, which represents a nearly 32 percent increase from the previous year’s growth. The advantages of opening a franchise are clear: instant brand recognition, business training, marketing support and access to a wide corporate network. And in particular, home-based franchises have been booming among budding entrepreneurs because they require lower startup capital than other common storefront-based franchise businesses like restaurants, health clubs or auto repair shops. With operating budgets tight, so many home-based businesses turn to Opus Virtual Offices which, for only $99 per month, supplies all the details necessary to create a perfectly professional appearance such as a dedicated business address, a live phone receptionist during business hours, office phone and fax numbers and even conference rooms.

It is a fact that the staff for most home-based franchises consists of a single employee/owner, with perhaps an additional family member or two. Which leads to the question – who is answering the phone when customers call and the “staff” is busy? And how much business might be lost to competitors because a call went directly to voicemail? With a professional receptionist from Opus Virtual Offices, calls are promptly answered from 8:30am – 5:30pm and forwarded to up to four different contact numbers. And during off-business hours, the innovative Opus Virtual Office phone system continues to provide efficient service by instantly converting voicemails into an audio file which the system emails to the owner, as well as forwarding all received faxes to the owner’s email.

“An Opus Virtual Office is not just an option for a home-based franchise business, it’s a necessity,” said Opus Virtual Offices CEO Yori Galel. “When a person invests so much of their hard-earned capital into a franchise business, they must be sure to operate at the highest quality level and always project a professional impression. With a virtual office, business owners can affordably ‘expand their staff’ with a live receptionist to field calls and ensure that no important communications are missed.”

Another very key advantage for home-based entrepreneurs using a Opus Virtual Office is the dedicated business address, typically available in a well-known commercial part of the city. After all, which is more impressive and professional? Having customers send checks to the home, or having them sent to a prestigious professional address? And what results come up on Google Maps?

“We really view ourselves as a partner and support team for the small businessperson,” said Galel. “We’re more than just a vendor or service provider. Many franchisees appreciate Opus Virtual Offices as an integral component of their home-based business.”

Opus Virtual Offices is the fastest growing company in the alternative workspace industry with more than 600 locations in all 50 U.S. states and Canada. Their successful business model is built on providing full office services for a single, low monthly rate of $99, rather than operate like other companies that charge additional piecemeal fees or surprise customers with contractual fine print.
