Founders, Leigha Stepp and Candice McKeon grew up in a small town of Lake Wales, FL. Cousins, and life long friends. They chose the name Franklin and Rose after two of their grandparents, Franklin Caldwell and Rosa Stepp.
The historic downtown Lake Wales has always had untapped potential that the two founders recognized. The two chose to take a risk and open a small boutique not only to bring affordable home goods and apparel to their small town, but to contribute to bring businesses to the untapped historic district.
Franklin and Rose opened their doors to their small town locals on August 8th, 2020 and launched their online shop shortly after.
