Eventually moving into a larger space in 2014, the Candy Factory now inhabits 25,000 square feet of space in the historic Lancaster Storage Company. She recently opened The Studios at The Candy Factory as well as Jelly Bellies, the region's first childcare/coworking facility combo. The Candy Factory is a coworking community of over 280 professionals and provides a professional yet relaxed work environment for people looking for creative, affordable ways to work in Lancaster County, with a focus on connecting members through internal networking, promotion, as well as social activities. She founded the PA Coworking Alliance and hosted the first PA Coworking Conference in 2018 at The Candy Factory.
