The Faces Behind Coworking Station

Coworking Station opened in downtown Holly Springs, NC in Spring of 2016, but it had been a plan for the town for much longer. With the need for coworking spaces growing, our team jumped at the chance.

Our Hope for Coworking Station

Our team loves the collaboration and community-feel of the coworking concept. We’re excited to see the networking and success Coworking Station can help provide for its members, and we enjoy seeing the creativity and innovation our occupants produce.
