Josh

Staying here in the Lancaster area for a month and needed a co-working space to work on some of my current projects. Found the Candy Factory, and could not be happier!! The atmosphere is great, everyone here is friendly and nice, plenty of room, right around the corner from PerkUp coffee  and….well, 5 stars just aren’t quite enough. Thank you, Candy Factory, for letting me be part of your community for a short time. I’m looking forward to a couple more weeks of this!

Steve

I always feel very welcomed with the friendly atmosphere and smiling faces. The space is unique and certainly has an area for all needs. It’s a creative and professional space to visit that is unique and unlike any office space I’ve ever been in which makes it conducive to collaboration.

Ashley

The Candy Factory is a great place to create and thrive. I joined before the renovations and I’ve felt myself grow as the building grows. There have been many great opportunities for me here.
