Saving Lives for Zachary Poster 7-18-2018.jpg

Whatever may happen after death, we know that our lives continue on in the memories of those who loved us, and those whose lives we touched. Zachary Bigelow was a young man full of kindness, creativeness, and a passion for cooking. He began as one of our chefs at Franco’s Lounge and Cloud 9 Airport Restaurant in 2012, and continued with us until he passed. Zach was a great asset to our restaurants and a wonderful friend to all of us. He always knew how to make others feel comfortable and could light up whichever environment he was in. It was an honor to know Zach for the time that we did, and it is our honor to host this event in his name.

With love, The Daniele Family

Dear Friends,

It is with great enthusiasm and pleasure that we announce the new destination and tour to SICILY, 21-29 October, 2018. Our tour operator for this 9 days/7 nights excursion will be the well established, respected and knowledgeable seller of Italy, PERILLO TOURS. 

The tour of Sicily, including Palermo, historic Agrigento, and the most enchanting hilltop town of Taormina, along with other sites, has been especially designed for Franco’s Friends and is not being offered to the general public.

In addition, for those who would like to extend their travel dates and explore the up and coming region of Italy, a post-trip to the PUGLIA REGION is being offered. 

This 5 day/4 night program will take in the famous towns of Matera, with its “sassi” caves and the unique town and structures - Trulli of Alberobello - to name just a few. More information to follow on this part of the journey that will include a culinary theme.

The tour is open to family and friends, and the more participants the lower the tour price per person will be. 

We hope to see those who joined Franco’s Friends in Italy 2016 once again on the SICILY 2018 tour for another fun and memorable experience. For further enquires or questions, do not hesitate to contact Mary Anne Pulizzi, Group Coordinator at:
