The Full Story


Franklin Builders was started by Gary Peterson in 1964. Gary and his business partner at the time lived off of Franklin Street, which is how we got our name! The business started as commercial framing and general construction.  Mike Jackson started as an apprentice to work along side his father in law Gary, right out of high school! Mike brought along the custom cabinetry side of the business and taught those quality craftsmanship skills to his sons Mikey and Matt.
