    CHANGEMAKER: Matt and Kathleen Smucker, Cafe One Eight

    Q: Why is it important to create a welcoming cafe space for people in the community to connect?

    A: It’s who we are and what our original vision was in starting a business. So many things at Cafe One Eight have evolved as we’ve grown as a business, but the idea of serving our guests with excellence and hospitality has always been our number one goal.


    Q: How do you feel Cafe One Eight gives back to the Lancaster community?

    A: Cafe One Eight contributes (in the form of gift cards and retail products) to many local nonprofits for fundraisers to help promote the great causes here in Lancaster.


    Q: What is it about sharing food and coffee that helps bring people together?

    A: There is just something about “breaking bread together” and talking over a cup of coffee that breaks down the walls and makes life more enjoyable.


    Serving Hospitality: Matt and Kathleen Smucker provide an authentic meeting space for those looking to connect over coffee, sharing lunch, or enjoy being together at Cafe One Eight.
