About Business

IN THE LATE 1920'S, THE FRANKLIN MORTGAGE AND INVESTMENT COMPANY SERVED AS THE FRONT FOR THE LARGEST ALCOHOL RING IN THE COUNTRY. MAX "BOO BOO" HOFF AND HIS CRONIES RAN ABOUT 10,000 GALLONS A DAY VIA TRUCK, TRAIN AND BUS. THEIR OPERATION DWARFED EVEN THAT OF AL CAPONE. AFTER PROHIBITION, THE ART OF BARTENDING, WHICH HAD GONE INTO HIDING, WAS BROUGHT BACK BECAUSE OF MEN LIKE JERRY "THE PROFESSOR" THOMAS. THE FRANKLIN CELEBRATES BOTH THE GOLDEN AGE BARROOMS OF THE PRE-PROHIBITION ERA, AND THE SKILLED BARTENDERS WHO FLED THEIR HOMES TO PURSUE A NOBLE CRAFT BANNED AND DEMONIZED IN ITS COUNTRY OF ORIGIN. WE WELCOME BACK TO OUR SHORES THE ART OF A FINE MIXED DRINK. THE FRANKLIN IS A PLACE WHERE A STIFF DRINK AND A TUNEFUL HORN CO-MINGLE, AND WHERE BARTENDERS ARE ARTISTS. ABOVE ALL, THE FRANKLIN IS A BEACON FOR THOSE WHO FEEL THAT A DRAM OF ALCOHOL IS NOT MEANT AS MERELY A VESSEL FOR INTOXICATION, BUT A SENSORY EXPERIENCE ALL ITS OWN.
