About

The Commons Company of Lancaster is a family of food, beverage, and hospitality ventures that embrace a history of excellence and community driven culture.


It is our mission to belong to and nourish our communities through inspiring concepts, thoughtful hospitality, and meaningful employment.

Inspiring Concepts We are intentional in every experience and in every detail — from the aesthetics of our cafes to the quality of our products.  

Thoughtful Hospitality We make each customer feel known, welcomed, and comfortable. Anticipating the needs and expectations of our guests is important.

Meaningful Employment We know each team member for who they are, what they care about, and where they're going. We actively invest in their personal and professional wellbeing.


Founded by Crystal Weaver and Kyle Sollenberger in 2015 to expand on the foundation laid by Prince Street Cafe, Commons now manages multiple eateries and cafes, runs a multifaceted kitchen and bakery, and thoughtfully presents some of the most memorable coffees and teas in the world. In addition, Commons offers start-up and operational consulting services to help others grow and manage their business.

Hiring the right people, training them for excellence, and giving them room to grow is what sets Commons apart. Join our team.
