Who We Are

We’re a group of friends and collegues who love living in Chico and are here to help bring a hub of community to our downtown.

Stoble Workplace

What began as an idea to create a single story cafe with a few offices for rent has grown into a much larger endeavor. We now find ourselves with a light filled atrium surrounded by 17 offices, 5 conference, collab, and meeting room spaces, and tables galore. Our freshly renovated sublevel adds an additional space for a large classroom space, printer/coper facilities, phone booths, breakroom lounge and more. 

Our Story

With the vision of creating a central hub in downtown Chico where the community, small business owners, and creatives alike can come together, we’ve spent the last few years surveying the local business scene, and the creative solutions offered by coworking collectives across the country to bring Butte county a resource unlike any other.

Paired with Stoble Coffee Roasters.

This location truly brings the community right up to your door as it houses a cafe and coffeeshop across the Plaza facing side of its interior.

A small but mighty team

More than a decade of friendship and ideating at our core, we’ve found a constant stream of projects to keep us all connected as we’ve spent time both near and far. Having spent the last few years cheering each other on in our respective fields, we are very thrilled to at last have a shared goal together in Stoble!

I’ve called Chico home since 2010, and I am so excited to use the four walls of Stoble as a hub for delving deeper into the amazing community this town has to offer.

An engineer who loves getting nerdy into to many things, my involvement with Stoble runs all over the place. Generally found jumping between overseeing the high level ops of Stoble and helping out wherever the need arises.

After moving to Chico to found Stoble a few years ago, I’m now largely focused on the branding, design and digital marketing of all things Stoble.

Having recently hung up my nursing cap for the adventure of bringing Stoble Workplace to life, I’m so enjoying bringing all the pockets of life and ideas in and around Chico together in this downtown hub.

I was born and raised in Chico and jumped at the chance to be involved in such a community-centered space for coworking, events and so much more! I feel so lucky to be involved in such a special part of our sweet little town.
