The Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center is open and fully operational, serving area visitors and locals alike, we’re extremely proud of our new building. Located at 98 Hyatt Road, Franklin, NC – the new building has been a dream of the staff, which became a necessity, when the NCDOT made plans to place a traffic circle in front of the now old location.
We’re holding an official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House on Tuesday June 20th from 11 AM – 2 PM. The ribbon cutting will take place at 11 Am. We’d invite you to stop by and take a self guided tour around the building, or walk with one of our staff and/or volunteers, and get a first hand look at the new building and see how we’ve evolved from the previous location.
A major highlight of our new location is the Area Attractions walk through displays. It’s a 3-D, life size, immersive experience that gets you right into the heart of some of our area’s most popular attractions. Once you’re excited about the area, you’ll flow out into our display racks, with information on dining, shopping, lodging, gem mining, and more. Even information if you’re looking to relocate!
Are you looking for a little piece of Franklin to take home with you? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Our large Franklin area merchandise space has gifts and treasures of all shapes and sizes for you to browse and take home a little bit of the mountains.
Off the road for a break? Need a cold soda, fresh coffee or just a little time to rest? We have a refreshment and vending area, along with FREE Wi-Fi access so you can take a break, grab a drink and relax for a spell. Who knows, you may want to stay and explore a little more!
So now you’ve seen a small taste of what your new Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center has to offer. We hope you’ll join us on June 20th for our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House. But don’t worry if you can’t, we’ll be here and look forward to meeting you when you can!
