Last June, Papa Frank’s was severely damaged by fire. The breakfast spot reopened Monday after a year of renovations. The owner says support from the community was so important. “We had a fire and I was very emotional and I never really realized that the community cares about this small business, and that is what Albuquerque is all about,” said owner Joey Gallegos.
A GoFundMe page was set up last year for the repairs, and as of Tuesday, they raised nearly $16,000.
