The Franklin Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of Kountry Kitchen On 153 recently with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Kountry Kitchen on 153 is located at 351 Carolina Mountain Drive, previously the location of Elmore’s Fish Fry.

The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting for Nash’s Nest located at 112 Depot Industrial Park. The shop is located in a warehouse behind Mulligan’s Bar & Grill.

Owner John Nash isn’t new to Franklin. In 2005, he owned a small shop at 63 East Main Street.

“We were the little store that was 4 foot wide and 60 foot long on Main Street. There was lots of history in that little store. In 2010, like so many other retail stores, the economy forced us to close our doors. Fast forward three years and we are back in a bigger location with the same great prices,” said Nash.
