When Tri Star Energy, LLC wanted to bring Twice Daily stores to Franklin, Tennessee, there was one problem: a zoning ordinance prohibited it. The City of Franklin had enacted an rule in the 1990s that banned gas stations on corners, which was all but a deal-killer. However, Tri Star didn’t give up hope and called on Gresham Smith to work with the City to revise the ordinance. Once we got the green light, our team helped survey, plan, permit and construct 10 stores and counting, bringing the next generation of convenience stores to the City of Franklin.
