The Macon County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity (HFH) International is now Habitat for Humanity Macon/Jackson.

At the request of HFH International, the Macon County affiliate has assumed responsibility for restoring operations in Jackson County.

“We’re anxious to restore Habitat services and getting involved with the community in Jackson County,” said Dave Jones, president of the board of directors.


The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony at Nantahala Physical Therapy, located at 96 Macon Center Drive in Franklin. The beautiful new, 4,000 square foot facility combines state-of-theart equipment with a positive learning environment.

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 restaurant is family owned and operated by Michael and Corie Childers and John Wilson and Linda Sanders, serving good home cooking at its best including daily specials and fresh homemade desserts. On the menu you will find a full breakfast, wraps, burgers, sandwiches or early dinners.


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.
