Full details: History:Frankley

It seems there will never be an end to the jokes about Frankley's name, especially as it's close to Rubery.

As of 2014, the nationwide downscaling of restaurants and retail shops had left the centre of the northbound services and the upper level of the southbound services largely boarded up, with Greggs and Burger King making up the majority of the trade. This is an interesting contrast with many nearby services, which had grown in recent years.

On the northbound side, this was put right in March 2017 with a new M&S Simply Food store opening in the centre of the building.

There were plans for a southbound Greggs here for several years before the forecourt gained one on 9 March 2017 and finally the main amenity building gained a Greggs kiosk outside on 12 January 2018.
