Over the next several weeks leading up to our 3 year anniversary we’ll be blogging about coworking and what it really means for us as members of its community.

First, what is The Candy Factory and where are we located?

The Candy Factory Community is made up of two coworking spaces in Lancaster, PA. Our two prime office locations are 323 North Queen located on the 300 Block, one of the coolest blocks in the city. Next to funky shops and restaurants and only a five minute walk to Groundworks our second location. Groundworks is located at 30 North Queen beside Central Market, the square and the convention center.

Not familiar with coworking?

We are a community of professionals and the perfect place for small businesses, freelancers, startups, non profits and students. Anyone looking to join a professional community in downtown Lancaster while having the benefit of an amazing office. We’re not just shared office space–we are a community focused on business growth, community involvement and engagement in downtown.

We participate in the Coworking Visa Program which allows our members to use coworking spaces all over the world. We have 5 meeting / conference room spaces between our two locations, room for over 30 desks, community tables and work areas for those who don’t want a full time desk.

Over 55 members to network with at member events like, Lunch & Learns, member lunches, happy hours and much, much more.

We love our community! We open our space up for all kinds of community events, from workshops, meetups (example The Lancaster WordPress Meeetup Group) Mixers, Presentations, Music & Art Events. Giving back to our community is a key part of our mission.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in joining our coworking community send them our way. Thanks ~ The Candy Factory
