10 Vacant Franklin Spaces We’re Watching











2. Boudreaux Brothers

Boudreaux Brothers on Main Street in downtown Franklin closed at the end of July.

The building, located at 328 Main Street, already has a new tenant– another restaurant. What type of restaurant that it will become next, however, is uncertain.

The tenant submitted plans this week for “renovation of an existing 1,157 square foot restaurant for a new bar/restaurant venue,” according to the city of Franklin. But there is no name on the plans.

The owner of the building, Michael Walton, owner of Walton’s Antique Jewelry at 410 Main Street, could not be reached for comment.

The Boudreaux Brothers, meanwhile, still have a Santa Fe, Tennessee location.

Boudreaux Brothers, originally known as Papa Boudreaux’s, opened in Franklin in 2011.  Guy, Papa’s son, had worked alongside his dad and served as executive chef and menu developer in Santa Fe until opening the Franklin location. In December 2011, Guy, his wife, Erin, and his brother, Brad, and his wife, Landrianna, become sole owners of the Franklin location. In five years through continued menu development, recipe alterations, sauce development, and being separate entities with new aims, the brothers, and their wives made the decision to re-brand, re-naming the restaurant Boudreaux Brothers Kitchen & Catering. They offer private events, private catering, and corporate catering from the small scale of delivery to the grand scale of full service, decorating, and personally working alongside their clients to plan an amazing event.
