Franconia Township Reviews

The best thing about the local businesses in my area is that the owners/workers get to know and trust the customers. Many of the local business owners have children that attend school with my kids, go to the same church, and coach my kids sports teams. In our town, a handshake is as good as a written contract. I had some gutters put on my house, and the guy who installed them didn't want any payment until after the job was completed, and I was happy with the results. That says something about the integrity of small town businesses and residents.

This place is a beautiful small town in Minnesota. There are tons of things to do around here, especially related to wildlife and outdoors entertainment. Everyone knows everyone here so get ready to know every neighbor's neighbor. It was a great place to grow up but I have moved on to bigger cities and I wouldn't choose to live here again just because I have moved on.
Many of the residents in this area work at our 5 local public schools. With more people moving out of the city, and into more rural areas, opens up more teaching jobs. There are also a lot of family owned stores and businesses that keep getting passed down through the generations, and there are many people, including myself, that work out of the home.
