Front Porch leaving Franklin
Front Porch Bar & Grill may have closed its Franklin Street doors on Wednesday, but it won’t be gone for long.
The bar is relocating to a new location that hasn’t been set, said owner Billy Scott.
Scott said several reasons — the cramped space, minimal parking and an uncooperative relationship with the landlord — prompted the move from Franklin Street.
“It’s an ideal location because it’s downtown Franklin Street, but it’s also not.”
Scott said he hopes to move the restaurant to a shopping center, partly because of its free parking lot.
“The older students here that drive that come in two to three times a week, they’ll probably come out if they want one of my burgers or something,” he said.
Scott said the business wants to move as soon as possible, but must wait for the town to approve its permit, which will take at least 30 days.
