Pinchy’s Lobster Co has announced the closure of its Franklin location at The Factory in Franklin.

In a social media post, they shared: “PINCHY NEWS: We’ve had a hectic few weeks. The highlight of these weeks is that we have closed Pinchy’s at @thefactoryatfranklin The process of building our new restaurant in Sevierville, TN is taking a lot of time and attention as one would expect. This idea has been on our radar for a while and the idea was to just be a food truck for now. Unfortunately, on 07/29 someone literally stole this truck.

He continued: “The weeks since we have been working with insurance and others to restart and that is also a process. We’ve been at the Factory (in one form or another) since 2017 and we’ll definitely miss it. The new owners are going to build something very special but it’s a bit of a stretch and it’s time for us to focus on our next big chapter, this restaurant in Sevierville is going to be amazing and we’re excited to show it to you. In the meantime, we will be back in food truck form as soon as possible but there will be a short break until this process is complete. Thank you to the great people at the factory who have given us some fantastic years and we hope to be there in the future. Above all, thank you to our wonderful customer base who have supported us throughout our iterations. We are all very grateful to you! We are still open for catering and our (new) food truck will be here soon enough.

Pinchy’s opened in August 2020. Prior to the Pinchy’s concept, owner BJ Lofback opened Funk Seoul, a Japanese and Korean street food restaurant, at The Factory at Franklin.
