The Candy Factory and Rock Candy are excited to announce that Steve Palmer will be taking over full ownership and management of Rock Candy starting this month.
While the ownership structure is changing, we’re so happy to still continue our collaboration between both spaces. This change allows The Candy Factory to focus on coworking in Lancaster City and our new community hub which will include a supervised childcare facility called Jelly Bellies and new private offices, a media studio, an art gallery and more! Steve will be able to now focus fully on building the Rock Candy community in Lititz.
So what does this mean to coworking members?
1. Members will not see much of a change. With a formal affiliation agreement in place, RC and CF members will be able to use each location up to 4 times a month.
2. Members of both locations are invited to all events at each location. While individually owned we are still a community and part of the PA Coworking Alliance.
3. There will now be two websites.
The Candy Factory – www.CoworkingInLancaster.com
Rock Candy – www.RockCandyCoworking.com
It’s been an honor working with The Candy Factory, more specifically Anne Kirby, who has been an amazing leader in this joint venture and an even better mentor for a newbie to community building! While we know change can sometimes be hard we do believe that this is the best direction moving forward for both coworking communities.
Seeing both locations grow over the years has been so rewarding. Each space has it’s own vibe and energy and we’re forever grateful to all who supported and believed in us as we got RC started and continued to grow the CF. We know this might be bittersweet for some, but no worries we’re not going away. RC & CF will continue to collaborate and be part of the same family and the PA Coworking Alliance and all are welcome to engage and connect.
Here’s to coworking and community in Lancaster County!
