Franklin's Fruit Tea Grand Opening Partea

Story and photography by Eric Lusk

We’re pretty sure that Mylikya and Germayle Franklin don’t actually sleep. It seems like all they do, besides making the most delicious fruit tea you will ever taste, is work, work and work some more. But don’t worry, it doesn’t take time away from their family… because their daughters are right beside them working just as hard!

The family not only organizes the ongoing Friday Night Market in the Boro events at Cannonsburgh Village, the Black Murfreesboro Market events, runs their drink truck – but now has officially opened their brick-and-mortar “drikery” on the corner of Maney and Castle in Murfreesboro.

Hundreds of supporters came to celebrate the grand opening of the store. Bill’s Hot Fish and Chicken Food Truck was there, along with a live DJ.

Congrats to this fine family. Please support local. Visit their website,
