Franklin County has BlossomeD into a community With a DiVerse grouP oF home styles.

Home Haven F photo by historic homes tour

ranklin County’s allure has more than one source. Its closeness to the college “Triangle” of Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University, as well as the economic expansion of the Research Triangle, mean that high-reward business growth and hightech job opportunities are readily available. Franklin County’s rural atmosphere is the perfect complement to nearby Raleigh-Durham. Of course, Franklin County’s natural beauty, nestled in the heart of the North Carolina Piedmont, is probably its most attractive asset!

Franklin County has blossomed into a community with a diverse group of home styles. There are historic and colonial homes; locally popular, these styles reflect the rich history of the county, dating back to the 1770s. Farm homes, log cabins, and rustic Cape Cods add to the “country” appeal. For those with contemporary sensibilities, beautiful town homes and gated community developments are available, carefully planned to enhance the area’s small-town charm.

EDC Offers Updates on Progress and Incentives

Ronnie Goswick, director of the Franklin County Economic Development Commission, is excited about the outstanding growth and opportunities Franklin County has seen in recent years. He is also very optimistic about where the county is headed. “The most recent innovation in Franklin County is the inclusion of a shell building in the Triangle North Franklin,” said Goswick. “The modern business owner needs both office space and warehouse/manufacturing-dedicated areas. The large, tall, and adaptable shell building provides an inexpensive alternative for prospective company owners to start their business.” Business incentives are also a big draw for new industry. Considerable cost savings are available for businesses in the region. In addition to Triangle North Franklin being classified as a Tier One, Goswick says there are plenty of other incentives available from the EDC and the state. Open Tuesday–Sunday Breakfast & Lunch Dinner Served Wednesday–Friday 333 Main Street • Bunn, NC 27508 • (919) 497-0039

“Business owners can take advantage of 7 percent investment tax credits with no threshold,” Goswick noted. “In addition, eligible taxpayers that invest at least $10 million in real property within a three-year period and create at least 200 new jobs within two years at an establishment located in a Tier One county, are allowed a credit equal to 30 percent of the eligible real property investment. “Other incentives available from the state include sales and use tax discounts, exemptions, and refunds,” Goswick continued. “Businesses may also qualify for discretionary programs and other cost-saving plans. The Franklin County Economic Development office can help businesses apply for and answer questions about these programs.” Raynor & Associates Realty, LLC and Raynor Builders of Louisburg, LLC We are the answer to all of your buying, selling and building needs.

North Carolina Barbecue

Connoisseurs of fine American cuisine know all about North Carolina’s distinctive barbecue style. Two local proprietors of Franklin County offer their mouth-watering takes on this great North Carolina tradition.

Neil Holden, of Holden’s Barbecue in Youngsville, describes the region’s distinctive cuisine. “North Carolina-style barbecue is distinguished by its vinegar-based barbecue sauce,” he said. “There are two ways to do North Carolina barbecue: you can cook the whole hog — everything but the squeal, as the locals say — in the ‘Eastern’ style, with a vinegar and pepper sauce, or you can barbecue the ‘Lexington’ way and use only the pork shoulder, with a vinegar and ketchup-based sauce.” Johnny Gardner, owner of Johnny’s Barbecue in Louisburg, notes that this all-American cuisine has local roots. “North Carolina is the real home of American barbecue,” he said. “Since the 1800s, North Carolinians have used hardwood coals to slow-roast pork for full tastiness and melt-from-the-bone tenderness. In my humble opinion, nobody does barbecue as good as North Carolinians.” 14 Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce
