Hours Of Operation

The Franklin Fountain quietly opened the last week of the summer 2004. One of our early customers said that opening a business was like having a baby. How very true. As with a well-loved child, we have come a long way investing every ounce of our time, money and energy into The Franklin Fountain. As our business grows organically, we will continue to exert our full energies to make the fountain a democratic place for all people to enjoy and interact in the larger community of Old City. Above all, we are dedicated to our overriding purpose hanging in the shop under a portrait of Dr. Franklin:

The Franklin Fountain aims to serve an experience steeped in ideals, drizzled with drollery, and sprinkled with the forgotten flavors of the American past.
