Since arriving in Philadelphia in 1999, Ben Fileccia has established himself as an industry leader in hospitality, operations, and sales. He has spent the last 18 years cultivating a valuable network and expanding his reach by supporting and collaborating with restaurants across the East Coast. Fileccia has opened seven restaurants in his career, managed front-of-the-house, back-of-the-house, and strategically improved guest experience by implementing modern hospitality practices. He brings invaluable restaurant expertise and a depth of knowledge to the table.

Fileccia is currently Restaurant Partnership Manager - Mid-Atlantic at Reserve, a premier hospitality technology platform that helps restaurants and guests connect. At Reserve, he successfully launched their reservation software “Reserve for Restaurants” in the Philadelphia market as the general manager, bringing on over 100 concepts through his extensive relationships in the hospitality industry. He currently oversees Reserve’s business for the entire Mid-Atlantic region.

Fileccia’s high-level, authentic hands-on practices have brought him, and the concepts he’s worked with, multiple accolades, including many at Sbraga Dining, where he was Director of Operations previous to his role at Reserve. It was with Fileccia as General Manager that Esquire awarded Sbraga Dining “Best New Restaurant” in 2012, Philadelphia Magazine named it “50 Best Restaurants,” and he earned himself the title of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best of Philly: General Manager” in 2014. Previous to Sbraga Dining, Fileccia worked with the critically-acclaimed Vetri Family of Restaurants, managing and overseeing Osteria and Amis Trattoria. Under Fileccia’s control, Amis was nominated for the James Beard Best New Restaurant 2011.

While proud of these accomplishments, Fileccia’s inspiration remains grounded in his genuine desire to see Philadelphia flourish as a culinary industry and community. Throughout his career, he’s continually shown his dedication to raising the city’s profile as an East Coast dining destination.
