CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Driven by a growing demand from area businesses for scalable and cost-effective workplace solutions, Regus has announced its expansion in North Carolina's Research Triangle with a new full service business center in Chapel Hill at 1340 Environ Way.

North Carolina's diverse business community and favorable business climate were also key factors in the site selection process.  Major technology, healthcare and financial services companies have a significant presence in the state.  With twenty-four North Carolina companies earning spots on the Fortune 1000 list last year, Regus' client base is looking to tap into the domestic and global business opportunities emerging in the region.

"Remaining flexible in today's uncertain marketplace is key for businesses of all sizes," said Donna Scott, Regus' East Region Vice President. "We allow a business to dictate the terms of their agreement and to choose the amount of space they occupy in our center.  This flexibility dramatically reduces the amount of capital they allocate to their office and business services needs."

One of Regus' first clients Peter Mohr, of Carolina Wellness Group, Inc. was drawn to the Chapel Hill center because he wanted his office space to match the professionalism of his business:  "This center impresses our most business savvy clients. In my world, presentation is everything; my new office space is sophisticated and meets my business' requirements."

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is doing its part to foster business success in the region.  The university recently announced a $125 million fundraising campaign intended to boost entrepreneurship and innovation that will groom students to be tomorrow's business leaders.  

The environmentally friendly Regus center is located in the brand new East 54 – a mixed-use community, which has been certified by the US Green Buildings LEED® program.  

It is Regus' ninth center in North Carolina, including facilities in Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham and Greensboro.  All centers offer flexible terms on fully furnished private offices, meeting rooms and virtual offices.  With its Businessworld Membership program, business travelers have affordable access to Regus' global network of more than 400 locations in the U.S. and 1,100 worldwide.
