FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WKRN) – A popular Nashville-based chain is expanding and bringing its hip-hop-inspired menu of artisanal pizzas to Williamson County. 

On Thursday, the Factory at Franklin announced that Slim and Husky’s Beeria will begin construction this winter at the historic mixed-use development. The establishment is set to open in early summer of 2024.

In a release, Clint Gray — a co-founder and chief marketing officer of the beloved pizza chain — expressed his excitement about the expansion.

“The Slim + Husky’s Team is excited about our latest move to Franklin,” said Gray. “As a brand created to serve the community, it is exciting to be a part of The Factory at Franklin where we have such great neighbors. Our team is looking forward to meeting new friends, families, and pizza lovers throughout Williamson County.”

To celebrate the expansion into Franklin, the pizzeria is partnering with Williamson County Schools to host a free lunch and learn session on Monday, Nov. 13 for students enrolled at the district’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center.

The  Slim & Husky’s food truck will also be parked outside The Factory’s entrance for lunchtime from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday.
