“Ty and Susannah are top tier operators and we are very excited that they have chosen Westhaven Town Center as their first restaurant and venue location in Franklin,” said Mary Lee Bennett, Marketing Manager for Westhaven. “Not only are we pleased about their concept, but we are also very happy that they are local to the Williamson County community and have a very good understanding of what will play well with their future patrons.”

In addition, Front Street will be rolling out a reservation-based Supper Club program Fridays through Sundays from 5-10 pm.

Front Street Tavern will incorporate local cultural elements that make Westhaven and Franklin distinct.

Hauter anticipates live performances occurring Thursdays through Sundays with the vibe leaning toward acoustic sets mixed with storytelling and relaxed interactions.
