Featured Project

Ann's Restaurant

One of Downtown Franklin's popular favorite breakfast and lunch stops, this restaurant wanted to upgrade its building as part of the overall customer experience.

Their 20th-century functional commercial building was constructed in 1987 after a fire destroyed the original building. The Franklin Development Corporation's investment helped with a facade project that included period signage.
