From a 60 sq ft Shed to an Office Building

It’s hard to believe that in four short years, E-Impact Marketing went from a small office in a Lancaster City backyard, to a three-story office building with office spaces for collaboration, ideation, rejuvenation and much more! It all began in a 60 square ft shed in the backyard of a row house in Lancaster City. As our client list grew, we moved to a 400 sq ft garage with a small conference room and in 2019 our own building at 42 S. Prince Street. Read the story to learn more!

April 2015: Tiny Backyard Office

From January to April, we worked in the house basement and at cafes here and there. Finally, in April we had a backyard office of our own.

Our First Office Space

It seems appropriate for E-Impact Marketing to have officially launched from a small backyard office shed as around 50% of E-Impact clients are in the storage shed industry. The first building was built and designed by our President, Chris Stoltzfus, and had around 60 square feet of interior space. Not only did this office provide space for two people (and later 3 people) to work, but it also served as Chris’ backyard tool shed as shown in the photos below!

This tiny marketing office had a coffee bar, shelves for mugs a white board and space to store camera equipment! This office space served our clients for around one year.

April 2016: Move to Garage Office

Late in 2015, we realized something needed to change. Our tiny office had 3 people working in it and the client list was growing. God provided a new home of for Chris and his family which had a garage.

400 sq ft Garage Office

The move to Union Street was exciting. We were a team of three and our client list was growing! Now we had space for real desks and room to grow. Lancaster City was amazing in giving us permission to have six team members in our small space. Little did we know how soon the small office would be full!

Growth came quickly and we were soon booked out nearly a year. As more clients wanted to join the Success Plan, we continued searching for and hiring team members to help our clients succeed online. By 2018 our space was nearing capacity and by 2019 we had six and on some days seven team members working in a confined space! It was time for something new…

May 2019: Two Floors and Counting

At the end of 2018 our client list had grown to nearly 50. Many new clients had to wait months and even up to a year for a new website launch. Our team was growing and filling our small space. One day, we came across a large office space nearby and the negotiation was on.

2019: New Marketing Office

When the time came to think about another move, we began looking to rent an office space around Lancaster City. Little did we know that a lovely office building would fall into our laps within a 10-minute walk of our garage office.

In January of 2019 we purchased a 3,000 square foot office space at 42 S Prince Street, Lancaster, PA 17603 and soon began renovations. Again, the City of Lancaster was amazing as we worked through the details.

At the beginning of May, we were moved in and began enjoying our new marketing office space!
