About Us



Even though the first P.F. Chang’s opened in 1993, our story began in the early 1960s when Philip Chiang (our co-founder) worked in his mother’s authentic Chinese restaurant. After graduating from art school, he channeled his creative and culinary talents into cooking his mother’s authentic recipes and opened a restaurant of his own. His mission back then was simple: to share good food with his friends. He never set out to build a global restaurant brand, but here we are! And even as P.F. Chang’s has grown, that core mission – to share good food with those we care about – has remained the same.


P.F. Chang’s is an Asian restaurant concept founded on making food from scratch every day in every restaurant. Created in 1993 by Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming, P.F. Chang’s is the first multi-unit restaurant concept in the U.S. to honour and celebrate the 2,000-year-old tradition of wok cooking as the center of the guest experience. Since inception, P.F. Chang’s chefs have been hand-rolling dim sum, hand chopping and slicing all vegetables and meats, scratch cooking every sauce and wok-cooking each dish, every day in every restaurant. Today, P.F. Chang’s has 210+ U.S. restaurants, including airport locations, plus over 95 restaurants in more than 25 countries across the globe.
