Why Franklin?

We get this question often. The goal in naming Franklin Professional Associates was to find a name with real meaning. That meaning was found in the opportunity to pay respects to an entrepreneurial blood line going back to the founder, Melissa Glenny’s grandparents. In 1949 they started Franklin Printing Company in their basement. Franklin Printing Company, based in Zanesville, Ohio, thrives today under the leadership of their children and grandchildren.

We choose to fashion our business name after theirs because life is not only about leaving a legacy, but it’s also about recognizing the legacy that was left to you. We’re leading by example in being grateful for what we find and working tirelessly to always leave things in better shape than how we found them. The name Franklin is our daily reminder of this message.
