A new cafe in downtown Franklin likely would have opened without help from a city-formed organization, but that opening would have taken longer.

The new Franklin College café, located in a storefront connected to Franklin City Hall, opened with the help of more than $50,000 in grants from the Franklin Development Corp. to renovate the building and buy kitchen equipment.

Without the grants, the college likely would have paid for all the work and equipment on its own, but having the money from the agency allowed the café to open sooner, said Lisa Fears, Franklin College vice president of planning, plant and technology.
