Franco’s Pizza celebrates 3 years

By Beth Volpert 

Franco’s has given away more than 120,000 gift certificates as reward incentives to local schools! 

Flying dough, warm, gooey cheese and homemade ingredients set Franco’s pizza apart from most pizzerias. What makes them rise to the top isn’t found just in the superior toppings, but in the constant commitment to their community. 


City of Snellville to celebrate 90 years 

By Beth Volpert
