We are a Jacksonville business for Jacksonville businesses.


Fresh Cowork started because we saw a need in our rapidly expanding city.


We can’t address every growing pain, like traffic on JTB or constant construction, but we can help with one: office space.

Jacksonville doesn’t have enough real estate options for small businesses and entrepreneurs, so we transformed an underutilized space into Fresh Cowork.


We offer a more flexible, affordable, and serene work environment that doesn’t scrimp on amenities. This is part of who we are, as a family and as a company.


Eleven years ago, we started FreshJax, our organic spices business, because we wanted to share clean food without sacrificing taste and variety.


Our office spaces can’t make your dinner taste better, but they can make your day a lot fresher. Natural light, a neighborly culture, outdoor space, and a short commute can change your quality of life.


But we’re not stopping at serving our city, or even your business. The Fresh Cowork community, just like Fresh Jax, gives back globally, too. It’s part of our family’s mission to inspire healthy living, serve others, and empower our customers to do the same.


We welcome you to join our Fresh Cowork community and our mission. It’s about a whole lot more than office space.

Meet Our Team
