While the Francoluigi’s at that spot doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, an article from about the the pizzeria mentioned the possibility for a new restaurant from owner Frank Borda.

According to the article, Borda owns a property on the 1900 block of East Passyunk Avenue. He has been considering opening some kind of franchise, or opening a new restaurant in his property on the hot restaurant strip that is East Passyunk Avenue.

More on the potential restaurant from‘s interview with Borda:

I do own a beautiful building right on the 1900 block of the Avenue. I have a tenant right now, but I might step into that arena and do something really outrageous. The second floor would be a balcony with musicians, and the first floor would be a restaurant. It might make some people on the Avenue upset, but I would love it.

What do you think of Francoluigi’s opening a restaurant on East Passyunk Avenue?

    I’d be interested to know which building he’s talking about. But other than that, sounds good to me.

    This sounds like a great idea. Franco knows how to run good place and it would be exciting to see a new take.
