“The Candy Factory is an awesome option for individuals running a small business. As someone who primarily works from home, having a space outside of my apartment where I can work that I know will be quiet and focused is extremely valuable.
The community is great and everyone I’ve gotten to know has been very friendly. I love how many opportunities there are here for different groups of professionals to connect and collaborate, and it’s great to have access to business facilities that a small business owner would otherwise have to purchase!”
