The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed La Chispa to the business community with a ribbon cutting ceremony. La Chispa is located at 497 Highlands Road and is open seven days a week from 12 noon to 11 p.m.

The public is invited to drop by and browse through the many items the store has to offer. Products range from original perfumes, men’s clothing and shoes to soccer supplies, western wear, party supplies, blankets and Baptism supplies. Purchasing overstocked items allows them to offer items to customers at a drastic savings.


Re/Max Elite Realty announces that June Tassillo has completed the real estate industry’s most comprehensive training in the use of the U.S. Government’s FHA 203k Home Purchase and Renovation Loan program. With this designation, Tassillo becomes a member of REbuildUSA, a nationwide organization of real estate, lending and home improvement professionals, working in partnership with Lowe’s, is dedicated to helping more Americans achieve the dream of home ownership, improving our communities and contributing to the health of our economy.

“The FHA 203k Renovation Loan offers tremendous opportunities for many Americans to enjoy great prices on homes today,” explains June Tassillo, “yet there is very little awareness of this program and the power it offers in our current economy.”

Edward Jones prides itself on providing the best service possible to those investors who choose to do business with us. Hawkins will help provide the high level of service investors in Franklin, N.C. have come to expect from us as well as extend our services to new investors.”

“I’m looking forward to working with Chris and meeting investors in this area. I’ve come to admire his professionalism, and I believe working with him will make me a better financial advisor,” said Hawkins.

Early on Saturday mornings, Operating Partners and FATZ® employees open their restaurant hours before their scheduled shift to flip pancakes with volunteers from various local organizations, transforming FATZ® into a hot spot for hotcakes.
