A Sandwich Shop for Franklin


More to come on this later tonight, but for right now, the word is out that 736A Franklin Avenue, the former home of about About Time Boutique (and The Spot, if you go way back), will re-open soon as a sandwich shop. ILFA is thrilled, both because Kevin and Garnet Philip are awesome people whose businesses are community lynchpins, and because ILFA absofreakinglutely loves sandwiches. About Time's designs are still available online, and based on the photo, the new shop has all the excellent style we've come to love. No word on the opening or offerings yet, but watch this space for more info.

    1. Are you crazy?!? Kevin is really great... you must be thinking of someone else. There are a couple of creeps on the avenue but Kevin is nothing but quietly polite. I have no idea why you'd say that.

  5. I was at 739 Franklin last night and their chef was cooking up something that smelled pretty tasty...and the menu is rather good for a bar. They said they will start serving food today!

    This is great. More choices in food on the avenue so we don't have to SETTLE for barboncino or chavelas, just because there aren't many choices in the area! Keep the development coming.

  8. wow! looks like the new sandwich shop (about time's old place) might actually be a hit with all these talks. was there earlier when the old awning came down. the products and farmers involved are insane.

    great store front location! wish i had the spot for my idea:(

    can anyone recommend a commercial realtor? we were told that there is NOTHING left on franklin!

    agreeing with @8:10am. the more choices the better!

    Our family knows kevin and he's real cool. good luck!
