Marija Kovačević recently reached out to us inquiring about our coworking space. Marija is the PR and Media Director at Nomad Capitalist and is a part of the company’s remote team. However, she travels every three months to a new country, trying to capture every moment that matters in writing and photography. Here is the article she wrote about us! The remaining list of nominated coworking spaces can be found here. (Scroll down a bit to get past the advertisement.)
Best Coworking Spaces in U.S. of 2017:
The Candy Factory was established in 2010 and is located in the heart of downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They were the first co-working space available in central PA and they are very proud of it! You can tell they promote and encourage business growth, creative thinking, shared brilliance, and collaboration while offering an affordable office solution for small businesses, freelancers, remote workers, and non-profits. The Candy Factory’s mission is to foster community and spur the growth of small businesses.
They pay attention to the community aspect and frequently organize for their members fun activities like lunch outings, collaging club, workshops, movie nights, weekend hikes, lunch and learns, happy hour activities, and so much more. You will enjoy a chill, eclectic vibe which fits in perfectly with the ever-growing buzz of the beautiful city!
They have had such amazing success since opening, that in addition to expanding their tower to six floors, they are also expanding into a second location—called Rock Candy—on the Rock Lititz campus. We were notified that there is also a big cafe project in the works with The Mix at Arbor Place and CoLab, which offers a program for at risk students to learn business skills for their future! We’ll have to check it out.
