About Us

We have a rich history here in Lititz, and we want to share it with you.

The Lititz Shirt Factory began making men’s shirts in 1916 as the Tauber Ryttenberg and Company Shirt Factory. For decades, the humming of sewing machines could be heard from the 3-story brick warehouse. Eventually, competition from cheaper labor overseas caused the company to shut its doors. Through the years, the building played many roles in retail but often sat empty and finally fell into disrepair.

Then in 2016, Lititz native Jim Hoffer bought the building with the dream of restoring it into a special gathering place for the community.

Four years of painstaking restoration work by the Tono Group of Lancaster has breathed new life into this old brick structure. It is now home to Collusion Tap Works, serving artisan beers and tasty food. And upstairs, in a unique loft-style space, The Lititz Shirt Factory hosts musicians from around the nation while providing private rental space for nearly any special occasion.  Come join the fun at Lititz’s newest gathering place.
