The restaurant shared the news by posting a note on its door, stating the following:

“We are sad to announce that this location will be closing permanently on Friday, December 31, 2021, at 2 p.m. Unfortunately, we were unable to come to a lease agreement with our landlord. Thank you for your support, loyalty, and kindness over the years. Our Ina location will remain open and continue to serve the food that makes Philly famous. Please continue to support your small family-owned businesses in the community. We cannot survive without you.”

With that being said, the Marana location is still up and running. The 2,500-square-foot space previously housed Peter Piper Pizza, which moved into a bigger space across the street. Also, the location on Ina Road now has a brand new bar, adding more draft beer, wine, canned and bottled beer, and a full selection of spirits.

The Lajeunesses took ownership of Frankie’s in January 2017. Frank “Frankie” Santos founded the business with his wife Deb Santos in 2003; he passed away mid-2018.

Frankie’s Cheesesteaks is located at 3780 W. Ina Rd. #184, Marana, AZ 85741. For more information visit
