Five Daughters to set up retail spaces in 12South, Franklin

Sweet news from Matt Rogers at Eater Nashville: Locally owned startup bakery Five Daughters is adding a retail presence not just at its production center in The Factory at Franklin but also in 12South space that had housed the Corrieri's cheese shop. Look for openings later this fall.

Meek says that right now about 80 percent of their current demand is for doughnuts, including '100 Layer,' stuffed and 'paleo crushers.' But they also offer options such as kouign amaan (a crispy, caramelized croissant), cupcakes, custom cakes, biscuits, cinammon rolls and more, utilizing primarily local and organic ingredients.
