Have A Delicous Time At Franco's Cucina

By Keith Donaldson

Opened in 1995, Franco's Cucina has been filling the bellies of the people of Streamwood ever since. Utilizing real ingredients, and making the baked goods from scratch, has earned Franco's a loyal following in the area. Owner John Iaccino took some time to answer our questions about Franco's.

What was the inspiration behind opening Franco's Cucina? How long have you been in business?

We have been in business since February of 1995. My parents and I decide to open Franco's to combine my father's baking skills, and my mother's cooking skills.

​On the website it says you serve the "best Italian dessert." What do you think it is about your sweets that make them the "best?"

We make all our sweets from scratch. We make all our own doughs, creams and fillings, from scratch, including our cannoli cream. When my father would hire pastry chefs, he would tell them to make the best stuff they could. We use real butter in our butter cookies, and real cream cheese in our cheese sticks. We could make everything cheaper, but it wouldn't taste the same.

You also offer prepared meals for people to take home. What is your personal favorite meal you offer and why?

We offer both meals and subs for take home, or dine in. It's tough to say which is my favorite, because I love them all. If I had to pick my favorite I would have to say it is the subs. I have loved subs since my mom started making them for me when I was 14 years old.

Why do you think Franco's is the perfect choice for catering any event?

The best part about catering from Franco's is that it is one-stop shopping. We take great care in making sure that everything is as fresh and flavorful as possible, and that the cakes are as pretty as they are delicious.
