As part of the Venture Local Franklin (VLF) initiative, Macon County News is teaming up with VLF to highlight local businesses throughout Franklin. Periodically, 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.
No doubt about it, food is the gateway to the soul. Food helps create the identity of a community, and Macon County certainly has its share of one-of-a-kind eateries. From specialty themed diners like the Motor Company Grill on Main Street to eclectic ethnic cuisine like Sakura Japanese restaurant on the Highlands Road, Macon County's restaurants offer a little bit of everything.
