As drivers enter downtown Franklin from the west, they’ll be greeted by a historically restored service center and two new businesses by next year.

The Franklin Development Corp., an economic development group created and funded by the city, is putting more than $160,000 into three building renovation projects in the downtown.

The projects will help two new businesses, Geek in Pink Computer Repair and Gray Goat Sports, open shops in Franklin and help downtown business owner Dan Paris remodel the historic White Star Gas Station at Jefferson and Walnut streets.

The three projects exemplify the role the Franklin Development Corp. should be playing to help revitalize the downtown, Franklin Mayor Joe McGuinness said.
