It's easy to see why businesses love Franklin. With easy access to four major highways and an international airport, along with plenty of tax breaks, Franklin, located 11 miles south of Milwaukee, has attracted a number of major companies. Harley-Davidson has a distribution center there, and Northwestern Mutual has built a sprawling campus. From 1990 to 2006, the city's population has skyrocketed 51% to 33,000. The city faces the challenges of managing all that growth. -B.N.
