As Director of Operations, PA, Christopher Webb provides the leadership, guidance, and operational support to restaurant managers while monitoring daily staff performance and ensuring P.J.W.

Christopher is also entrusted with the responsibility for all operations development for new openings for the ever-expanding restaurant group.
Fondest Memory of P.J.W. Restaurant Group
“My fondest memories happen every time we open a new location. Building the team, training the staff, working morning to night. It’s creating that bond to get you through the crazy openings… that’s what I feel we are all about. A vivid memory is The ChopHouse opening in 2002. Challenged without a Chef or GM one mere month before the opening was chaotic, to say the least. The crew we built and camaraderie we felt to get that place open, run it smoothly and bring it to positive critical acclaim in its second year was nothing short of incredible. Some of the original team members are still with us to this very day.”
His overall passion for the hospitality industry has served him well and his razor-sharp insights, irresistibly upbeat demeanor and strong work ethic have enabled him to rise up the ranks. Even as an actual member of the family, Christopher worked his way from Assistant Manager in 1993, General Manager in 1996, Regional Manager in 2003 to his current position as an invaluable member of the P.J.W. Restaurant Group Executive Team.
Residing in Philadelphia, Christopher studied at Philadelphia Textile and Temple University. When not immersed in the hospitality and culinary world, he spends time bird watching, playing golf, traveling with his family, reading cookbooks, and eating and drinking in all life has to offer.
