Chris Johnston

SR. BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

THE Coach

Chris is a Detroit boy who spent the better part of the last two decades in Maine. The former high school football coach is particularly savvy at bringing out the best in his colleagues and team. This Harley-enthusiast is what we like to call a “responsible renegade.” Chris’s more than 25 years of industry experience have shaped and diversified his skill set to be highly proficient in concept development, menu development, people and team development, turn around projects and reopening closed properties. He has opened, managed, and developed several concepts and spent 18 years as the President, owner, and operator of 6 multi-concept entertainment venue, restaurants, and bars. What sets CJ apart is that, in addition to his Back of House proficiency via a Chef position for several years, he is equally adept at Front of House Operations with ample wine, craft cocktails and craft beer/cider/spirit knowledge as well.

When he’s taking a break from work, he’s cruising around Miami with the doors off his Jeep or you can catch him sipping tequila, blasting music and watching football!
