P.F. Chang’s has opened their new location today in Toms River, Ocean County.  The restaurant is the company’s first to be placed in what we can consider to be “down the shore”.  It will be located within the Ocean County Mall, which is a Simon Mall.  That partnership is the same in the new Rockaway Mall location that opened in February.  I covered that opening here if you would like to know more.  There are seven other locations currently spread throughout the state.

“We’re excited to bring P.F. Chang’s to the growing Toms River community in New Jersey, providing our exceptional service and scratch-made Asian cuisine for the first time,” said Art Kilmer, chief operating officer for P.F. Chang’s.  “Guests will be able to enjoy a one-of-a-kind dining experience and enjoy their favorite P.F. Chang’s dishes at a beautiful new location.”

Along with the restaurant will be the jobs needed to run it, which will number over 120.  Anyone interested can apply here.  That number of jobs makes sense given the size of the space.  At 5,720 square-feet, it’s quite large and will seat 150 people with another 25 seats on an outdoor patio.  That will require a large crew of cooks, servers, and support staff to manage.

It is highly recommended that you stop in and experience it all for yourself.  The new Rockaway Mall location has been doing very well, so I think you’ll appreciate the tip.

P.F. Chang’s Toms River is located at 1201 Hooper Ave., Toms River, NJ 08753.  Hours are 4pm to 10pm, seven days a week.
