Bad news/good news

We are saddened to hear about the closure of the Franklin Grill. The eatery, nestled in the historic Village of Franklin in a charmingly restored circa 1850’s building, is owned by the Kochensparger family. A post by the family on the restaurant’s website reads: “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of The Franklin Grill after 16 wonderful years of serving our beloved community. We want to express our deepest gratitude for the unwavering support and patronage you have shown us throughout the years. It has been an incredible journey, filled with cherished memories and meaningful connections. From family celebrations to everyday gatherings, we have been honored to be a part of your lives. However, given the need for us to shift our focus to our other business, we have decided to close our doors. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our loyal customers, dedicated staff, and the entire community for being an integral part of our story. Your support has meant the world to us, and we will forever treasure the relationships we’ve built.” The good news is that the post goes on to explain that an expansive remodeling is planned by a new ownership group, and that there will be more news to follow on the future of the restaurant in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates on this new venture. 32760 Franklin Road, Franklin
