Fran’s Restaurant set to close for good on Friday

PELHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Fran’s Restaurant, which has been a mainstay in Pelham for years, will serve its last meal on Friday.

The family-owned and operated restaurant has become part of many people’s lives for years.

“You know, I got family and extended family. So, it’s not easy,” said the restaurant’s owner Beverly Smith. “I guess I’m just tired and ready for a rest. It consumes your whole [life]. It takes your whole life to do it.”

The property has already been leased out to someone else, who also plans to start another restaurant.

Smith says she plans to spend more quality time with her family.
