What’s in a name?
PJ’s – SentryWorld is named for P.J. Jacobs, the person responsible for relocating a small insurance company to Stevens Point in 1912. Born and raised in Stevens Point, Jacobs developed from a homegrown entrepreneur into a keen businessman with a vision for the future. When he was elected secretary of the Wisconsin Retail Hardware Association, he moved the growing Hardware Dealers Mutual Fire Insurance Company to his hometown. Over the course of his career, Jacobs’ leadership provided the foundation that makes Sentry Insurance what it is today.
“It’s such an honor for our family to have Sentry name their restaurant after my grandfather. My mother shared stories of his love of family gatherings. Because PJ’s restaurant will be focused on families, I think he would be very proud.” —Mary Joerns Nass, granddaughter of P.J. Jacobs
Locally sourced ingredients, talented chefs, and handcrafted central Wisconsin cuisine
Attention to detail
During the construction of Sentry’s Strongs Avenue building in the 1920s, P.J. Jacobs made multiple trips to Indiana to hire the best stone carvers and select the stone that would be used in the door frames. Following Jacobs’ example of innovation and craftsmanship, we strive to employ talented chefs who carefully select ingredients to create a unique dining experience. Please, be our guest!
