THE CANDY FACTORY & ROCK CANDY
The Candy Factory—a coworking space established in 2010—is located in the heart of downtown Lancaster, PA. Rock Candy, our second location, is located on the Rock Lititz campus in POD # 2.

What Do We Do?
Coworking and shared professional workspaces help promote business growth, creative thinking, shared brilliance, and collaboration through an affordable office solution. The open space concept we provide offers many advantages, from networking and collaboration opportunities, to easily accessible and shared resources. Both locations are perfect for small businesses, freelancers, remote workers, nonprofits, and other community members/groups from various professional backgrounds.

Our Mission
Our mission is to foster our community and help spur the growth of small businesses in and around Lancaster City and Lititz by offering the resources and support needed to encourage that growth.

We think outside of the traditional office space:
We Share, We Gather, We Imagine, We Create, We Thrive, We COWORK!
