WILLIE B’S, Where You Wanna B.. IS OUR PLACE TO ENJOY ALL THINGS SOCIAL.  A PLACE TO CELEBRATE DAILY SUCCESSES AFTER HARD WORK.  WILLIE B’S WAS BUILT ON THE FOUNDATION OF CELEBRATING THE REWARDS OF YOUR HARD WORK.  FOUNDER AND OWNER, CHRISTOPHER JONES WAS RAISED IN THE HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD OF ORANGE MOUND IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE WITH A PASSION TO GRIND SPIRIT THAT WAS ENGRAVED IN HIM FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER WILLIE B. WALLS.  SHE IS CREDITED TO GIVING CHRISTOPHER HIS FIRST EXPERIENCE IN THE KITCHEN AT THE YOUNG AGE OF EIGHT.  HE RECALLS MEMORABLE SATURDAY MORNINGS, WAKING UP TO HIS GRANDMOTHER PUSHING HIM TO COOK MEALS FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY.  BY TWELVE YEARS OLD, CHRISTOPHER CAUGHT THE CULINARY ITCH.

 

CHRISTOPHER BEGAN HIS LOVE FOR TRAVEL AND FOOD AND HE BECAME INSPIRED.  HE PARTICULARLY BECAME VERY MUCH IN LOVE WITH THE MAGICAL CITY OF NEW ORLEANS.  THE BLEND OF SPICES ALONG WITH THE FRESHNESS OF SEAFOOD WAS ALL HE NEEDED TO BRING BACK TO HIS ROOTS IN TENNESSEE.  HE OPENED HIS FIRST FOOD TRUCK IN 2017 AND IT WAS A HIT.  TODAY, HIS FOOD TRUCK COMPANY KNOWN AS WILLIE B’S XPRESS IS A STAPLE IN THE MUSIC CITY. 

DURING THE SUMMER OF 2020, CHRISTOPHER OPENED HIS FIRST WILLIE B’S KITCHEN AND LOUNGE IN NASHVILLE’S BUCHANAN ART DISTRICT. HIS DREAM WAS TO CREATE A SPACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN SOCIALIZE WITH AMAZING FOOD AND DRINKS AND FEEL AUTHENTICALLY GOOD. HIS VISION EXPANDS TO NOT JUST SERVING HIGH QUALITY FOOD, BUT ALSO SERVICING THE COMMUNITIES THAT INSPIRE HIM AND ENCOURAGING ALL GUESTS ENTERING TO Just B.
