As spring nears, weather warms and more people dine out. Here are some restaurants that have opened or plan to open in Williamson County during 2023.

Edley’s Bar-B-Que

The popular, growing Nashville-area chain, Edley’s Bar-B-Que, which now has branched out into Illinois, has two new restaurants opening in Franklin this year. Edley’s is opening in mixed-use community Berry Farms and The Factory at Franklin.

Edley’s, first started in the 12South Neighborhood of Nashville in 2011, is a locally-owned barbecue joint known for its smoked low and slow meats and fresh-from-scratch sides. The Factory location is expected to be the chain’s largest with a catering kitchen.

“For Edley’s to be a part of The Factory at Franklin and its rich history is a dream come true,” said Will Newman, owner and founder of Edley’s. “I first visited the property 25 years ago with my mother and have loved it since. It is a privilege to be a part of the Factory’s future, and we hope to be deeply rooted here for generations to come.”

Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe

The Birmingham-based fast casual chain Taziki’s last month opened its first Nolensville location and another Williamson County location is coming to Franklin in the Berry Farms community. These will be the fourth and fifth Taziki’s in the county. The restaurant, which was started in 1998 and has over 100 locations nationwide, features Mediterranean fare including gyros, salads and grilled entrées.

Ludlow & Prime

The seafood-and-steak-specializing Ludlow & Prime, which started in Brentwood, is also opening a Berry Farms location. The restaurant has a menu boasting raw and cooked oysters, seafood and steaks, Italian cuisine and burgers.

Founder and owner Tim Kohler, also CEO of Ludlow Hospitality, said his family feels at home opening the second location in Berry Farms. Kohler has also been the senior developer for a New York-based private equity hospitality venture for nearly eight years.

Biscuit Love

Biscuit Love, the Nashville-based restaurant known for – you guessed it – biscuit sandwiches among various other breakfast foods is also opening a Berry Farms location. It’s the second Franklin location for Biscuit Love. Their “East Nasty” biscuit sandwich was named the nation’s best in recent years. Since then, the restaurant has expanded its food menu to include imaginative pastries and other items like “Not Your Mamma’s Meatloaf,” which has chorizo-spiced beef.

Ludlow & Prime, Biscuit Love, Taziki’s and Edley’ are joining the more than 40 tenants at Berry Farms, including Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s and Soulshine Pizza Factory.

Aha Indian Grill

Restaurateurs Krish Alapati and Shank Ponugoti recently launched Aha Indian Grill in Spring Hill, which is a little different from their previous establishments. Aha focuses on South Indian cuisine as opposed to the northern Indian foods served throughout America, Alapati said. This style also includes a tandoor grill. It’s a cylindrical clay oven used to cook meat.
