Pepe’s on Franklin Street in Worcester is going to start construction on a new restaurant further up Franklin Street near Chioda’s. According to Jon Travalio, one of the owners, they will break ground for the new place sometime in January. Travalio expects construction to take about nine months. Until that time, the current Pepe’s will remain open. The new place will feature a good-size function room. Pepe’s relocation may also help Chioda’s, which will remain a separate restaurant.
