with Lineage Bank
Franklin is known for far more than just being one of “The South’s Best Small Towns” and “The South’s Prettiest Towns” by Southern Living. The people here are genuine. We deeply care about one another, and we deeply care about our town and its history. And part of that history is rooted in several local eating establishments that members of our staff particularly enjoy.
Best Family Friendly Restaurant: Franklin Chop House
“Franklin Chop House has been a favorite of my family for nearly thirty years. The owner, Mark Robbins, created a wonderful place for families to have a quality dining experience with a decidedly local feel. Franklin Chop House is a part of Franklin just as we strive to be at Lineage Bank. There is a wide selection on the menu for folks of all ages, but you’re missing out if you don’t get the fried okra. I get it every time.”
- Richard Herrington (Chairman and CEO of Lineage Financial Network)
Best Lunch Spot: J. Alexander’s
“They provide fast and friendly service with a high level of professionalism, just like we do at Lineage. Another similarity is the decades of experience in our market. My favorite server, Derry, has been there seventeen years. My colleagues make fun of me for being the soup and salad guy because I order that ninety percent of time at any lunch. Both the chicken pasta and chicken tortilla soups are excellent, and the Cypress salad is my go-to.”
- Carl Haynes (EVP, Chief Banking Officer)
Best Date Night Spot: Sperry’s Restaurant
“You can’t go wrong with a date night to Sperry’s. The smoked salmon is fantastic, and like my colleague Carl, I’m a big salad guy myself. Their salad bar is excellent. Also, if you’re in the mood for a nice steak, this is your place. Make sure to get the bananas foster for two flamed tableside. You won’t regret it!”
- Stephen Lewis (EVP, Mortgage Sales Manager)
If you haven’t already, we highly recommend checking out one of these wonderful establishments. You may just run into one of us here from Lineage Bank! Happy dining!
