Jose D. Franco founded Franco’s Marble, Granite, and Tile in the Early 2000s. With the help of his brothers Bernardo and Magarito, FMGT became one of the valley’s best countertop fabricators in Phoenix, known for their quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. Jose was known for his charisma and contagious personality. Always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, Jose shared his craft with whomever wanted to learn. Many apprentices later went on to start their own company and achieved their own American dream. He was a great friend, brother, and father.
Francostone was founded in 2017 by Luis Fernando Franco, Jose’s eldest son. As a sister company, Francostone worked hand-in-hand alongside Jose Franco to deliver quality stone craftsmanship to the valley. Sadly, Jose D. Franco passed away unexpectedly on August 4th, 2019. Since then, Francostone has thrived and continues to carry on Jose D. Franco’s legacy by continuing his work and maintaining his strong work ethic and high standards in craftsmanship.
