What Opened in The Factory in 2016 & What You Can Expect in 2017

Factory at Franklin

As The Factory at Franklin strives to become the ultimate place for locals and visitors to shop, eat and hang out with family and friends, a slew of new businesses opened in 2016 and many others were announced for a 2017 opening.

One of the biggest announcements made in 2016 was that popular Nashville burger restaurant The Pharmacy will open in 2017, in the former Lyrics space, located near the Franklin Road entrance. Making way for The Pharmacy, The Little Cottage, a children’s clothing store, moved out of its current space to a temporary space down the hall. Their permanent shop will be at Jamison Square, across Liberty Pike from The Factory.

Also of note was the opening of MAFIAoZA’s, an Italian restaurant known for their stone-oven pizzas. MAFIAoZA’s just opened on Dec 29th.

The popular food truck Funk  Seoul Brothers, which specializes in Korean and Japanese street food,  is expected to open in The Factory in 2017. We don’t have an exact opening date, but will keep you updated.
