The TCF Team Welcomes You!

Anne Kirby, founder of The Candy Factory, is a recognized leader in the coworking industry. Starting with her design and marketing company in 1999, Anne's journey led her to establish The Creative House of Lancaster in 2006 and The Candy Factory in 2010 after recognizing the need for collaborative spaces to combat the isolation of working from home. Under her leadership, The Candy Factory has grown into a 25,000-square-foot hub in the historic Lancaster Storage building, encompassing The Studios and Jelly Bellies, a unique childcare/coworking facility.

Anne's passion extends beyond The Candy Factory. She founded the PA Coworking Alliance, leads the Kick-Ass Female Entrepreneurs group, and speaks nationally on coworking and community building. Recognized as a Central Penn Woman of Influence and recipient of the 2018 SCORE Small Business Award, Anne's focus is on connecting and empowering the coworking community.

At The Candy Factory, Anne and her team are dedicated to creating a vibrant, supportive environment where over 300 professionals connect, collaborate, and thrive.
