What started as an idea by second-generation hospitality entrepreneur Mike Daugherty has grown into Fuse Workspace, a booming coworking business throughout Central Texas.

The setup

President and partner John Herring said he believes traditional executive suite options are quickly being replaced by places like FUSE Workspace, where members can utilize private offices, desks, meeting rooms, event spaces, coworking spaces and virtual offices.

“FUSE caters to a way of life that enriches its members versus just selling space,” Herring said. “We create a premium workspace close to home with all the amenities of a Class A office experience.”

That motto has proved to be a success from the beginning, Herring said. Five months into the launch of FUSE in 2018, he said they reached 95% occupancy. Since then, the company has opened locations in Houston, Bee Cave and Dripping Springs before moving into Four Points this summer and, within the next year or two, Cedar Park.

A closer look

Situated near Steiner Ranch and River Place, FUSE’s Four Points location offers 104 private offices with various seating accommodations. Memberships are available with hourly, daily or monthly options and include mail services and live telephone answering services. Driven by a full-time concierge team, on-site amenities include barista-styled drinks and a snack market—in addition to Wi-Fi, printing and more.

“We’re building a community of people that enjoy coming to FUSE to work or meet, but beyond that, we’re building an experience that provides opportunities for community, connecting, networking and growing,” Herring said.
