FDP Website Connects You to Local Businesses

Looking for a restaurant or personal trainer in Franklin? How about information on an upcoming festival or an update on a construction project? Whatever you’re looking for, should be a favorite place to go to get connected with what’s happening around town.

The website is the place to go to find links to local shopping and dining, get updates on downtown construction projects and download festival forms. Find links to historical sites in town, get connected to community interest groups or learn more about the Partnership’s mission and efforts.

The non-profit Franklin Downtown Partnership has more than 160 members who are business owners, residents and community leaders working to revitalize downtown Franklin. The FDP runs popular events like the Harvest Festival, the Strawberry Stroll and the Holiday Stroll. It also heads up beautification efforts and acts as a central voice for members in matters affecting the town.

“With this website we have created a central place where everyone can come to learn more about living and working in Franklin and the exciting things happening here,” says Executive Director Lisa Piana. “It is where everyone, residents and visitors alike, can go to get connected to the heart of our thriving community.”

“We continue to grow the site and make it a ‘go-to source’ for event and contact information and links to important town resources,” says Terri Frank, website coordinator for the FDP. “A key component is our partner links, which take visitors directly to the websites of our members and community leaders who all take an active interest in promoting local businesses and building our downtown.”
