Joe Edmiston first visited Franklin, NC on vacation in the summer of 1976 as a teenager. He immediately fell in love with the beautiful mountains and friendly people and it was at that point he knew he wanted to make this place his home.
It wasn’t until 1987, after serving 6 years in the U.S. Army, that he was finally able to make the permanent move to Franklin in an effort to provide his 2 small children the best possible environment to grow up in. In 1989, he opened Papa’s Pizza to go in the Walmart shopping center and was voted Chamber business of the year in 1992. In total, he owned and operated 6 restaurant franchises from 1989-2000 but grew tired of the restaurant business.
After exiting the restaurant business, Joe pursued one of his passions of building and developing real estate with his son. Together, they bought, remodeled, built and sold dozens of properties in 3 different states.
Joe is the proud father of 4 children, all of which graduated from Franklin High School and now 5 grandchildren who call him “Papa Joe”. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience not only in the real estate field, but also from his construction background.
