Organized solely through social media and word of mouth, Venture Local Franklin's cash mobs attract upwards of 40 people for each event. Dozens of people flock to the meeting area 15 minutes before the mob is planned with a $20 bill in hand. Their intent? To provide locally owned businesses with a quick, one time economic boost in sales just by shopping locally.
Venture Local Franklin (VLF) was formed a couple of years ago as a grassroots movement comprised of members of the community sharing the common interest of enhancing Franklin.
