Francos opened its doors to a slew of VIPs and Saints players at its new location on Magazine Street in New Orleans. The celebration christened the all new building, designed and inspired by owner Sandy Franco with the help of Axcess Construction’s Joe Mistich and Jason VanHalen.
The chiseled brick facade stays true to New Orleans, with a cleverly designed first floor, which includes squeaky clean, floor to ceiling windows and a recessed entryway. The interior has exposed brick and high ceilings to accommodate state of the art exercise equipment.
Check out the pictures from the event, which show off the incredible outdoor lighting and our specials guests taking it all in.
We’re really excited about the grand opening of Francos Magazine Street, and hope to see you all there!
I am delighted to share my new YouTube channel where I will be uploading videos of special projects and other unique stuff about me. I am excited to have this new way of sharing all of the projects and stuff I am passionate about with you. Below are a few of the videos I have already created. Please check them out.

At this point in my life, I never thought I’d have my own personal website and blog. By establishing this little place on the internet, I hope to give people a deeper perspective into who I am and what really makes me tick, beyond a LinkedIn profile or a business bio blurb. Writing here, will be an opportunity to keep people up to speed on my various projects and initiatives and to garner support from people who share the same passion for community outreach and the environment as myself.
I proudly spend a lot of my efforts giving back with National LSU “L” Club (Letterman Association) and the Community Initiatives Foundation CIF, focusing on their Take Care program. Helping families, especially children in need, through outreach efforts with non-profits, is something that drives me. Also, making a difference in the environment, especially the wetlands, is another passion, where my efforts will hopefully make a positive impact for future generations.
