It's that time of the month again! We are excited to announce November's LoLo gifts! There are so many unique, wonderful, local businesses in Middle Tennessee and it's time to celebrate them this month!
LoLo, Locals Supporting Locals, is an amazing program for your Parks REALTOR® to give to you! Each month, a completely free, new gift comes to your cell phone for you to enjoy. The gifts are selected by county and are only for local businesses, no nationwide chains!
LoLo helps remind us to shop local and support our friends and neighbors! Here are November's gifts to you!
A local staple and tourist favorite, the Franklin Mercantile Deli has been owned and operated by Graeme and Corrie Asch since 1999! Touting a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and a menu filled with Southern breakfast favorites, specialty sandwiches, a fresh salad bar, fruit tea, coffee, and homemade desserts, the “Merc” has earned a reputation for being a go-to destination for anyone with a hungry appetite. Step inside and you’ll see familiar furnishings, like wingback chairs, a well-loved sofa, and homestyle wooden tables. The walls are adorned with paintings and photographs from local artists and professionals as well. Contemporary music fills the background, and the young, energetic staff is known for its attentiveness and positive attitude!

The dream of Half Batch Brewing rose from the ashes, like some kind of beer phoenix. Founder Nathan Newton opened Half Batch Brewing to share the thing he loves with people! He never considered himself talented in anything artistic, but he likes to think of brewing beer as his way of artistic expression. Nathan's goal is to brew the best beer he can possibly brew, every time. Hence his motto “Half Batch Brewing – Never Half-Ass”. Visit Half Batch and enjoy Nathan's creations!
