FRANKFORT — The owners of Enrico’s Italian Dining said Monday they have a tentative deal to sell their property to the developer of a proposed grocery store.
If the deal goes through, brothers Harry and Bob D’Ercole would reopen the restaurant elsewhere in the village, according to a news release.
The brothers, who also are partners in 3Ds Development, said that along with the restaurant site, 20127 LaGrange Road, the sale would include the former Town Center Bank property as well as buildings housing DePaulo Travel and Red Door Realty.
The brothers said they have an agreement to sell the property to Bradford Development, which hopes to break ground this year on a Mariano’s Fresh Market. The proposed grocery store is on the agenda for Thursday’s Frankfort Plan Commission meeting.
Harry D’Ercole said the family’s restaurant would reopen elsewhere, should the sale to Bradford be completed, according to the news release.
“For almost 40 years, Enrico’s Italian Dining has been a place where good food and good friends come together,” he said. “My family fully intends for Enrico’s to be that place for many years to come.”
Mariano’s plans a 70,000-square-foot building south of Old Plank Trail Community Bank.
The real estate owned by the D’Ercole brothers would be needed for a portion of the store as well as parking. Mariano’s is a division of Wisconsin-based grocery retailer Roundy’s.
