We love The Factory for it's retro environment of the old industrial factory but also love that it houses new and trendy shops. You can also see very cool events in one of their two event centers. Concerts and other fun events are there routinely. Check out their event listings for something you might enjoy going to. Several places to... More

I went to The Factory to meet some friends at a restaurant and ended up roaming around and checking out the stores afterward. Great space and lots of fun things to do. A bit outside downtown so you need to drive. Would highly recommend!

I am time resident of Franklin. The Factory is the place to bring out of town visitors on a Rainy Day. It is a old - made over collection of knick knack shops under a single roof, and a high priced restaurant. you can easily spend a couple of hours there sorting through stuff that you would not usually buy...

Very nice with a better variety of stores than downtown. Need more awareness about this place. Doesn't look like much from the outside but inside the place was spotless and the stores fun to shop in.

Several vendors to look at, lots of antiques and collectibles. No bargains, but great ideas! A very good use of a factory that is no longer a factory. Loved the restaurants, too!

We've visited The Factory many times over the years, but Christmas is one of my favorite times to do so. We enjoyed strolling around and checking out the Christmas tree displays, shopping for the unusual present or two and the over all atmosphere of this venue. If you enjoy art, good food and interesting people this is well worth your... More

Loved the reuse and design of this space! Very creative and relaxing. However, a lot of the shops were closed and not very interesting to visit. Need to get more variety. Loved the theater inside the factory and Saffire restaurant is fun with great "expensive" food.

The Factory is a wonderful restored "stove" factory with many shops & several restaurants, the newest is a healthy cafe named "The Thrive Cafe". Try it out you will like it!

The factory is a fun shopping mall that was built into an old factory building. There are various small shops and restaurants along with Theater Tenn, a fabulous local playhouse with great Broadway quality plays and musicals. Saffire restaurant is an excellent restaurant with upscale southern cuisine. Be sure to check out the "junk man," a huge statue fabricated by... More

The farmer's market outside is fantastic. Lots of vegetables, meats, crafts, and food trucks. Inside there are shops and a nice antique store that is large.
