Following a city order on March 15 to close all bars in Davidson County and have restaurants limit their seating capacities to 50%, several restaurants and shops in Williamson County have also reacted to the coronavirus by adjusting their business operations.




While some restaurants are offering curbside service, limiting hours and distancing in-house seating, others, like the Red Pony in downtown Franklin, have temporarily closed.

“We’ve decided to temporarily close our doors to the public so that we can take a deep breath and assess our options moving forward,” officials with The McConnel Hospitality Group, the group in charge of the Red Pony, said in a social media post. “We love you, Middle TN. You’ve always championed our group and you show up. We hope that when the dust settles you’ll come back and support our staff and tip them well.”

These are some of the businesses in the Franklin and Brentwood area that have altered their services or closed.
