Repairs at Franklin Barbecue appear to be progressing on schedule and the world famous Austin joint hopes to reopen for business in a couple weeks, Stacy Franklin says.
We were in the neighborhood of Franklin on Wednesday and drove by to see how the rebuilding was going. There were workers on the roof, and it was evident that repairs were well underway.
The place has been closed since a fire the morning of Aug. 26. Afterward, Aaron Franklin said the place would be closed for at least a month.
“We are hoping to open in the next two weeks,” Stacy wrote Thursday in an email to the Posse. “We have a lot of permitting / pieces that need to fall into place, but the timeline is looking good.”
She said there would be more updates soon on Franklin’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.
