Franklin County, Maine? In 2006, Jeff Strunk, Chase McKendry and Olympic Gold Medalist Seth Wescott bought The Rack, a bar at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in Franklin County. Looking for a lifestyle business that would allow them to live and work in Carrabassett Valley and support a mountain resort they love, the three entrepreneurs knew that Franklin County was the ideal place for them to locate their families and their business. "Whether it's skiing, rafting, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking or hanging out at The Rack, we can't imagine having our business anywhere else." With housing prices at a low and lifestyles at a high, now's the time to make your move to Franklin County! For more information, contact Alison Hagerstrom. Alison Hagerstrom, Executive Director P.O.
