Copper Kettle to open in Franklin
Another popular Nashville eatery is heading to Franklin, which is proving it can hang with the food revolution that has hit the big city just to the north.
Copper Kettle is planning to open a Franklin restaurant in mid to late February, according to owner Lana Robb.
“I caught this opportunity the next day after Uncle Buds locked up,” Robb said. “We love the Franklin area, and feel our fresh ingredients along with price point is great for the family and business community in Franklin.”
The Copper Kettle has two locations in Nashville, the first near the Lipscomb University Campus on Granny White Pike and the second in downtown Nashville.
Their Franklin location will be at 901 Columbia Avenue, which was previously Uncle Bud's.
The Robbs will continue to operate the Granny White location and the downtown location, which was originally reported by the Nashville Business Journal to be closing.
“We will be at our downtown location for many months, but it is under contract right now,” Robb added. “We are still looking for a catering kitchen closer to our downtown location, but really cannot make this decision until we know what the buyers closing date will be.”
Copper Kettle serves “Meat & Three” but also sandwiches, wraps and fresh salads, as well as Sunday brunch.
“[Our restaurant] still leaves room for all the great fine dining in Franklin, but if people would like a more casual atmosphere with food made from scratch, we can be their place,” Robb said. “We’re great for a quick business lunch and great for all the families that just do not feel like cooking but want quality food that they would like to make at home, but just do not have time for.”
The Copper Kettle is hiring and those who are interested can contact the Robbs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
