The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed Life’s Bounty to their new location on Main Street with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Life’s Bounty Gift Shop and Bakery/Café is located at 28 East Main Street. Amanda Hernandez and her dad, Tony Hernandez, offer a wide selection of baked goods along with soups, salads and sandwiches. Be sure to check out their daily specials, too. You’ll have a hard time deciding on your dessert at the end of your meal between the baked goods and ice cream bar.

The staff at Life’s Bounty has over 30 years of bakery experience offering decorated cakes for any occasion including weddings, breads, pastries, pies, fudge, brownies, and so much more.

There’s a new catch-phrase for economic development and entrepreneurship: “business gardening.” Just as in gardening, in economic development, the business environment must be prepared before planting, and once the young seedlings begin to grow, they must be fertilized and nurtured until they are ready for harvest.

This may sound just like the philosophy of Chauncy Gardener, the character played by Peter Sellers in the movie “Being There,” but it’s not.


The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the grand opening of Lisa’s Corner’s new location at 714 Highlands Road.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
