The goal of this map is to – quite frankly – support our small businesses and in turn the growth of our community. Approximately 63% of jobs are created by small businesses, while, approximately half of small businesses survive five years or more. Our area businesses have given their time, funds and effort to creating a business that serves the needs of our neighbors. They know their clientele and gear their products, menus, attractions, and more to what best fits in our unique community. There are numerous Antique & Auction stores when you might find that special treasure. Our Attractions & Entertainment range from God's natural creations to man-made fun. If you love to camp, our Campgrounds & RV Parks offer beautiful locations along with planned activities. You may want to visit one of our local Church Services on Sunday morning as part of your search for rest.

Want to save money? You can't beat a trip to one of our Consignment & Thrift Stores, or make a day of it and visit them all! Of course, you'll want to taste our local fare at one of our area Food & Dining establishments. You can have anything from simple food-to-table products, to more exclusive meals for that special occasion.

Our Health & Fitness businesses can help with your drugstore needs, or check out one of our fitness clubs. Obviously, you'll want to choose that perfect Hotel & Accommodation that best suits your desires, and if you lock your keys in your car (God Forbid!), you can count on one of our Service Businesses to come to your aid. So, when you come to our home, please be sure to walk down the streets visiting the downtown Specialty Shops. Also, be sure to look for the hidden gem businesses that are not as easily reached, but will help your trip be more memorable. The small restaurants, the produce stands, the farms, the bed and breakfasts, hotels or campgrounds that offer amazing locations and activities, should be on your list. Check out area venues where you can arrange family reunions, weddings, church gatherings and more. We have a talented group of citizens who can share their music and art with you at local galleries and festivals. Take home one of our Made in the USA souvenirs from your visit. Every business is different, which is what makes them special. If you are searching for something that you are unable to find, ask the locals (ASK Franklin NC) and they will try to point you in the right direction.
