Sizzle Award Winners

Sizzle Award Winners

Congratulations to The Sizzle Award winners of 2018 (11th Anniversary)!

Below is the official winners’ list of the 2018 Sizzle Awards poll.  The Sizzle Awards are the best of the best businesses of Williamson County as voted by the public.  There were multiple first-time winners and some winners won by just 1 vote so it was exciting!

The FranklinIs Sizzle team spent days working on tallying the poll votes to identify the rightful winners of “The Best Businesses of Williamson County”.   Winners were announced on April 30, 2018 at the annual Sizzle Awards banquet in Franklin.  

1st place winners received trophies, 2nd and 3rd place winners received a custom certificate.  

Winners will be announced and promoted throughout the year, depending on promotion package.  You can further promote your business by advertising with FranklinIs and we can add your logo with a website link.  For more info on advertising please contact FranklinIs HERE.
