Franklin’s economy is one of the healthiest and strongest in the nation. A diverse business climate shelters the city from problems associated with a fluctuating economy. While a broad-based economy is certainly a plus, companies considering expansion or relocating to Franklin find other advantages too. For example, the Greater Nashville area provides an abundance of suppliers and services in support of one another. Employers’ costs for salaries, benefits, and overhead are lower than in other regions and without a doubt, Franklin’s unusually rich quality of life and Southern hospitality offers ample opportunity for companies and their employees families to enjoy and become involved in making Franklin even a better place to live, work, and play.
