Have a coffee, a scone or a walk on the Greenway
As part of the Venture Local Franklin (VLF) initiative, Macon County News is teaming up with VLF to highlight local businesses throughout Franklin. Each week, MCN selects locally owned and operated businesses in a different category. It is our goal at MCN to work with VLF to encourage residents to shop locally and utilize the resources Franklin has to offer. For more information on Venture Local Franklin, join their next community hang out on Thursday, July 26, at 5:30 p.m. at the Frogtown Market and Deli.
After closing their business, 50 Minute Photo, Sandy and Tom Pantaleo began working on a way to incorporate Sandy's passion for coffee and Tom's passion for art and photography. After brainstorming, the duo, along with their son Cole, opened the community hang out Main Street Coffee & Tea in downtown Franklin in September 2005.
