The Candy Factory is a wonderful place of opportunity. This trendy industrial space is a diverse hub where people of all different professions and skill-sets can work alongside one another to learn and grow their network. The Candy Factory currently offers two locations to their members, Lancaster (Warehouse D) and Lititz (Rock Candy). Both of these locations are unique and offer special offerings to the members.
The Candy Factory is much more than a simple coworking space. In addition to providing a space for small business owners and freelancers to work and connect with others, The Candy Factory also has various projects that help to foster a sense of community.
One of TCF’s many projects includes a networking group for women entrepreneurs in the Lancaster area, also known as Kick-Ass Female Entrepreneurs. The purpose of this group is to unify these badass women and provide a network to support one another in their entrepreneurial journey.
This group meets monthly to discuss a variety of topics to cultivate a sense of community as well as provide knowledge, skills, and advice. In addition to meetings, the group also has retreats, workshops, happy hours and more.
One of the newest additions to The Candy Factory is Perkup & Co, a social enterprise cafe. This cafe is a place that is mindful of its carbon footprint. With paperless pay (credit or debit only) and environmentally friendly food containers, Perkup & Co serves coffee with a conscience. The cafe is partnered with The Mix at Arbor Place and works closely with their Gröe program. Students within this program are employed at Perkup where they learn customer service skills among other professional skills to take with them into the adulthood.
Right around the corner from The Candy Factory, this cafe is a great place to pick up a coffee or a quick snack. Members receive a special discount on each order! An added bonus includes a free day pass to work at The Candy Factory with any purchase of $6 or more.
A unique addition to The Candy Factory is the new events & performance venue, The Sixth Floor. This eclectic event hot spot is located on, you guessed it, the sixth floor of The Candy Factory. This space has the potential to host a variety of events from live music to comedy nights.
