S

mith Center, Kansas is about
as close as you can get to
the heart of the American
heartland. It's surrounded by an
ocean of farmland, and is home
to a legendary football team.
An American family of
entrepreneurs
John Franklin was himself a
fullback for the Smith Center
Redmen back in high school.
Over the years, he has grown
his contracting business by
doing a wide variety of work for
folks in town. Business keeps
growing. He and his father, Dale,
just bought a brand-new CEI
concrete plant and a fleet of wellmaintained trucks.

Investing in the community
"It was about more than just
investing in a concrete plant,"
John says back at the Second
Cup Cafe. Sitting across the table
from his dad, he adds: "It was
about more than just getting
into the concrete business.
It was about investing in the
community."

The farm foreclosures that racked
the American heartland in the
1980's affected Smith Center, too.
Fortunately, there are people
who still believe in the American
heartland. Fortunately, there are
people who back up that belief with
their hands, their hard work, and
their wallets. Fortunately, there are
guys like John and Dale Franklin.
Dale, a well-known football legend
from the nearby town of Lebanon,
adds: "Our plant will also create
jobs, here in town." They'll need
people to drive the trucks, finish
the concrete, and help at the
plant. The Franklins will be able
to provide top-quality concrete for
both civic and agricultural growth.
The Franklins have decided to
name their new concrete business
"Fusion Concrete Products."
