It's fun, artistic and they have great conference room options that have flavor and variety. It was great for a film conference. And you have neat shops and restaurants around to explore during breaks. It has a really cool vibe.

The Factory at Franklin is a smaller sized shopping mall but it offers some real unique stores, coffee shops, and donuts. I love 5 Daughters donuts, they are incredible. There is also a big chair to sit in for a photo op, and a lovely antique shop. Unfortunately the antique shop will be closing at the end of March. They have a lot of 50% off sales right now. Check it out before it disappears.

Parking is available for free in the lot. A lot of stores are closed on Sunday, but the coffee shop, and 5 Daughters are open. There is a nice place to relax at the front entrance. There are leather couches, tables, and chairs. It’s a good place to wait for someone if you don’t appreciate shopping or catch up with some friends.

It’s a shopping mall with trendy shops, some food as well as meeting halls. It really is an old factory but now it has upscale, casual charm. It’s not the kind of place you could buy a new wardrobe or furnish a house but you will find unusual, artsy items at the Factory.

Easy to find located just off the main drag In Franklin.
Reasonably priced.
Upon arrival, go in , turn to your left, go to one of the registers, choose your package, get your cards then have fun.
Lots of video games that give tickets to claim prizes. 9 hole Putt-Putt course that's pretty challenging. Go-carts with real gas engines nice track. Jumping area that the kids loved.
Cool place.
Clean, safe family atmosphere.
We will be back

What a cool concept. This factory has been turned into shopping, eateries and a pottery studio. This place is fun to explore. You can grab an ice cream from Jeni’s and walk around looking at artwork, a cool guitar shop and you can even go try your hand a creating pottery or you could just lounge on the comfy couches eating ice cream and or sip on some coffee. This place has a cool vibe that has the bones that takes you back in time when the factory was vibrant.
