PJW Restaurant Group is focused on expanding its regional chain of restaurants, the popular P.J. Whelihan’s Pub, writes Emma Dooling for Philadelphia Business Journal.

In the fall, a Conshohocken location is slated to open, and the group is also working on securing a Main Line location as well. The restaurant in Conshohocken will be the 23rd standalone P.J. Whelihan’s in the region.

The restaurant will be located in the Plymouth Square shopping center at 200 Ridge Pike in Conshohocken. The 8,000-square-foot space was designed by the Philadelphia firm Eimer Design.

Locations have also been opened in Hatfield, Doylestown, and Broomall in the last year. There will be no slowing down though.

The plan is to open three P.J. Whelihan’s every year in the Greater Philadelphia region for the foreseeable future. A Main Line restaurant is next on the list.

“We don’t want to leave this market. We think the market still has enough white space and we can continue to grow here, and we don’t have to go to a market that we’ve never been to before. I guess there always comes a time when you have to make that decision. We’re not at that yet,” CEO Jim Fris said.

The Westmont, New Jersey-based PJW Group, besides the P.J. Whelihan’s Brand, also consists of The Pour House, The ChopHouse, ChopHouse Grille, Central Taco and Tequila, and Treno Pizza Bar.
