ANNE KIRBY
Founder of The Candy Factory
The Candy Factory inhabits 14,000 square feet of space in the historic Lancaster Storage Company after a recent renovation project. Anne also opened Rock Candy, a second location coworking space at POD 2 on the Rock Lititz Campus in January of 2017. The Candy Factory and Rock Candy serve as coworking communities which provide professional yet relaxed work environments for people looking for creative, affordable ways to work in Lancaster County, with a focus on connecting members through internal networking and promotion, as well as fun social activities. Additionally, Anne recently opened a social enterprise concept cafe called Perkup & Co. which employs disadvantaged city youth in collaboration with The Mix at Arbor Place. As well as running these three companies, Anne also facilitates an all women’s group called Kick-ass Female Entrepreneurs and speaks locally to organizations like SCORE, Cultivate Lancaster, and others on the topic of coworking and cultivating community.   GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY
