Lubbock's Campisi's Italian Restaurant, set to open September 5, will be managed by a Texas Tech alum and long-time employee of the North Texas restaurant.

Jesse Jenkins (shown in the photo inset above) graduated from Texas Tech University in 2004, majoring in Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management. After graduating, he moved to Dallas to begin working with Campisi's.

According to a Campisi's press release, Jenkins has worked for the restaurant in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for 10 years.

"I am so excited to lead the charge of the Campisi’s Restaurants' expansion outside of DFW into Lubbock," said Jenkins.

The new Lubbock location, located at 4414 82nd St., is set to open late summer/early fall. It will mark Campisi's first foray outside of North Texas. According to owner David Campisi, the restaurant is a test for future expansions.

For those interesting in working at Campisi's, Jesse can be contacted via email at or by phone: (214) 738-2985.
