The Second Annual BEST OF FRANKLIN Awards 13

Franklin’s Best for 2017 include repeat winners, local icons and exciting newcomers.

Franklin Lifestyle is pleased to present the Second Annual BEST OF Franklin awards!

The following pages will reveal the top businesses in 50 different categories as selected by you, the readers of Franklin Lifestyle. From restaurants and salons, to health care and home services, the balloting revealed the strong sentiments that Franklin has for a diverse group of prominent and viable entities.

As was the case a year ago, the balloting was competitive. Consider some of these notes and statistics:

  • While there were 35 repeat winners, only six winners garnered more than 50 percent of the votes in their category.
  • 24 of the contests were settled by fewer than 10 percentage points.
  • On average, the 50 winners collected 34.9 percent of the votes in their category.
  • In all, 54,453 votes were cast for 278 nominees.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to vote and if you have a favorite who came up short, now is the time to start the campaign for 2018! Likewise, we want to hear from you. If there are categories we should add, visit us online or at FranklinLifestyle.com, or send an email to one of our staff members listed on page four of this issue.

And now we bring you, THE BEST OF FRANKLIN for 2017.
