Meet Eloise Franklin
Our Grandma, Eloise Franklin was always cooking in her kitchen for family and neighbors. Everyone loved her cooking and told her to open a restaurant. Our great-grandma encouraged her to open a restaurant. She even found the original location on Scottsdale Rd. and Curry for her. With the support of our great-grandma she decided to leave her job and open her own business. So the story of La Fonda began. She opened a small restaurant with only a dozen tables serving Sonaran-style Mexican food.
