Frankie's Italian Kitchen and Bar is moving to a brand-new location on Vedder Road in the new year

Frankie’s Italian Kitchen & Bar will be closed in the new year.

They’re picking up and transporting their Italian restaurant operation to a new Chilliwack location at 7330 Vedder Road.

“We are excited to announce that Frankie’s will be moving into a brand new building in 2015,” said restaurant owner Raffaele Aiello.

Construction starts in March 2015.

The style is being described as “modern but classic” with traditional Italian décor, a cellar for private dinners, and restaurant space for families, business meetings or quiet dinners.

The new lounge will be both open and energetic.

“Our patio will expose both Chilliwack’s hustle and beautiful sunsets.”

In the meantime as they work toward the move, the current on Hodgins Avenue, attached to the Prospera Centre, will be closing its doors on Jan. 1.

They are keeping the old location for private events and catering bookings.

“On behalf of everyone at Frankie’s, we would like to thank you for making Frankie’s your Italian destination in Chilliwack.

“We look forward to inviting all of you to the opening of our new location soon.”
