Local Business Spotlight: Skylight Coworking

Skylight Coworking is a collaborative office environment offering low cost, shared desk and office space to members and drop ins. Rates start at just $25 for the occasional drop in coworker, with a mid-price point of $175 per month for part time members and $275 per month for full time members, and a premier price point of $325 per month for 24/7 key holders.

Skylight Coworking provides comfortable shared desk space, Wi-Fi Internet access, an open office environment, a semi-private conference room, kitchenette, rest room facilities, and above all else a friendly, collaborative, professional atmosphere amongst members. It is also available for events, jellies, and meet-ups.

The term “Coworking” was first coined in the United States 7 years ago and has become increasingly popular in both the U.S. and abroad. Coworking provides the opportunity for freelancers, virtual employees, small business owners, and other work-from-home types to build a collaborative community of professionals and a comfortable work space away from the traditional home office. Coworking attracts web developers, programmers, graphic designers, writers and editors, technology professionals, artists, Internet marketers, and other such creative professionals and freelancers who often find themselves in coffee shops or libraries in an effort to increase their productivity and stimulate social interaction.

Skylight Coworking chose Phoenixville as its headquarters location because of the bustling revitalization of the borough’s downtown district, as well as its proximity to Philadelphia and the Western Suburbs. Bridge Street and Main Street in Phoenixville are both lined with many new, up-and-coming businesses, including restaurants, shops, galleries, artist studios, cafes, pubs, and salons. The area will provide a cool and contemporary backdrop for professionals who choose to spend time working and interacting at Skylight Coworking.

Skylight Coworking opened at 214 Bridge Street in Phoenixville, PA with a soft launch on October 15 and is holding their Grand Opening Event on November 2.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
