FM #927 - Rich Frongillo Downtown Sports Expanding - 12/20/23

Published on: 28th January, 2023

This session shares my conversation with Rich Frongillo. Rich is the owner of Tinetrix, founder of the Franklin Soccer School, Inc., Downtown Sports, and the forthcoming Downtown Preschool (new in 2023!). Our conversation was recorded in the Franklin TV & Radio studios on Tuesday, Dec 20, 2022.

Rich and I had another winding conversation. We start with the World Cup, talk soccer and then catch up on business in this ‘new normal’ time. We get into economic development, housing and other topics catching up from our prior conversation recorded in Sep 2020.

Our conversation runs 67 mins. Let’s listen to Rich and I talk about small business life here in Franklin.
