Franklin Township Reviews

The job market in my area is very limited. Many of the jobs are part time. We have a few local businesses and restaurants but there is little room for growth. My mother is a nurse, she drives an hour to work. There are a couple of hospitals closer to us other than the one she works at but they offer less opportunity for her.

The businesses in the area are okay. We have two local pizza places, a Dairy Queen, Subway, and popular local restaurant. The Subway is relatively new so it is up to date but the others are in need of a new look and some repair. It is a rural farming town that could use some state aid.
Not to far in the country but not in the city
