Please keep in mind: Our philosophy is simple: Come together, do good work, care about our community, think local, and grow as professionals. The open space concept we provide offers up many advantages, from networking and collaboration opportunities to easy access to shared resources. Our mission is to foster community and help spur the growth of small businesses in and around Lancaster City by offering the resources and support needed to encourage that growth.
Our goal is to provide our members with the same freedom and flexibility they are accustomed to in their home office environment. For that reason, our space is primarily self-governing. We ask only that you consider the interests of those around you and that you abide by the following:
Privacy | Although we strongly encourage collaboration among members, we ask that members respect each others’ needs for quiet enjoyment. Violations of privacy, personal space, virtual space, and intellectual property are strictly prohibited.
Cell Phones | In the interests of maintaining a peaceful environment we request that all members, guests, and clients turn their phones to vibrate while in the space. We know being on the phone is part of business but please consider the people around you and maintain a low voice level if possible. Consider the following if you need to make a more private phone call. Phonebooth or call areas, common space or a meeting room
Your Security Codes/Keys | Keys should never be lent out at any time to anyone for any reason. Sharing security codes/keys will result in termination of membership. If your key is misplaced or stolen, you must notify the staff immediately.
Guests | The Candy Factory Coworking is accessible to Full-Time Members twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Guests are the responsibility of the member whom they are accompanying. Non-members are not permitted in the space after hours unless accompanied by a member. Guests attending The Candy Factory must sign in on every occasion.
