Bradshaw Building dedicated
Published 9:57 am Wednesday, March 25, 2015
The Bradshaw Building and its resident businesses on North Main Street in downtown Franklin were dedicated last week with the cutting of a ribbon, speaking words of gratitude and even the serving of cake.
Previously known as the Rhodes Building, and originally called the Professional Building in 1920, the structure is undergoing gradual renovations upstairs to house future companies.
The tenants downstairs are Insercorp Ltd., Personal Care Home Touch and Business Class Cleaners.
Insercorp, which provides quality website, marketing and information technology solutions, is the anchor tenant. Previously it was located on First Avenue before moving this past October.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured Franklin Mayor Raystine Johnson-Ashburn, Del. Roslyn Tyler (D-75) and Curtis Byrd, a representative for Congressman Randy Forbes.
With his parents, Joel and Unha Bradshaw nearby, Insercorp CEO Tim Bradshaw said, “I would like to thank everyone. This was a big business venture — a really big project. I’d like to thank Jim Hart for putting me onto this.
“There was a lot of work on his part. It’s still a work in progress.”
In addition to expressing his appreciation to Victor Story Signage, Bradshaw added that he’s especially grateful to the clients who helped him build the business over the past seven years.
During her remarks, Tyler encouraged the nurturing of such companies.
“We have to utilize our small businesses,” she said.
“I don’t think I need to tell you how Congressman Forbes is a champion of small businesses,” added Byrd.
