FRANCO'S CUCINA officially opened February 1. 1995, in Streamwood, Illinois. After 30 years in the baking industry, Franco and his wife Emily decided the time was right to open their first Franco's Cucina. Beside all the bakery products, Emily and her talented staff prepare wonderful entrees Monday thru Saturday for you to take home or enjoy in the dining area. They use only traditional home styles recipes and plenty of olive oil and garlic.
