HIVE CO-WORK SEEKS TO CARRY ON THAT TRADITION.
Being part of the HIVE comes with lots of perks. All our members have access to common work areas - tables, couches & bartops. If you prefer working in the great outdoors, we’ve got patio tables and benches throughout our beautiful campus. Community scanner and printer are also at your service. And of course super fast WIFI and all utilities are included.
Brown-bag it OR hit downtown for lunch. We’ve got a fridge and microwave… all you really need for storing and heating last nights Pad Thai. And if you don’t have leftovers (or PB&J), downtown Franklin is just a block (or two) away with a dozen great spots to grab a bite. Did someone say COFFEE? Our good friends at Frothy Monkey keep us stocked up with magic beans. And don’t forget your water bottle… we’ve got water coolers to keep you hydrated.
Outside the HIVE. Being part of HIVE means you’re part of something bigger than HIVE. Our friendship with the Idea Lab is like one of those freaky symbiotic relationships in nature. Lots of cross pollinating going on, business referrals, collaborations, education and partnerships. Better than a zillion Instagram followers!
THREE MEMBERSHIP LEVELS

Office members have all the same benefits as our desk members but they’ve got a door they can shut (or keep open!). Our offices come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Pricing starts at $675 for single occupancy and goes up from there.
Who’s running this place anyway?
We’ve been asking ourselves that same question. Some say it might be this guy named Dave… wait… yes… it is Dave. He’s a freelance photographer here in Franklin. Moved here 23 years ago from Athens GA where he and his wife both received degrees in Education (Art Ed to be precise). He’s been a freelance photographer for 10 years and taught Photography at O’More College of Design for 7 years. He’s also the Creative Director for A ROCHA and has been a member of Franklin Creative Suite (Franklin’s first co-work) for about 8 years.
