About Gianni DiFranco, the owner of DiFranco Contractors Inc.
I Grew up in Eastlake in the Surfside neighborhood. My father purchased a home there on Ridgewood in the mid 70’s when I was just a kid. We moved out of the old Collinwood neighborhood where all the Italian Immigrants once lived for better schools and to be in the suburbs. At 21 I purchased my first home on East 337th Street in Eastlake and lived there for 8 years until moving to Chardon. My business was started in the city. To Say the least, the city is a very special place for me as it’s where I became me.
Today DiFranco Contractors Inc works in the city on a regular basis. It’s nice to be working in the area where you grew up. Although I didn’t go to Eastlake North High School, most of my friends did. I still have many friends that live in the city and frequent it often. We did some concrete repairs at the stadium where the Lake County Captains play.
