"Johnny Rockets has grown tremendously over the last year, opening 61 restaurants in 2016, which is an exceptionally exciting feat for a brand with a 30-year history," says James Walker, President of Global Operations and Development. "This is in large part due to our Diner 2.0 refresh and the versatility of our brand and prototypes. Our flexible footprint and corporate support team provides franchise partners both the structure and options they need to ensure Johnny Rockets succeeds in their market."
The all-American brand started 2017 with key development agreements, partnering with groups to bring Johnny Rockets to the Caribbean, Singapore, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The Diner 2.0 brand refresh played a key role in Johnny Rockets' recent growth, evolving the brand from a traditional diner experience to a modern, fresh design and environment. It includes new décor and high efficiency kitchen equipment, allowing restaurants to offer the brand's signature made-to-order burgers, shakes and crispy fries at faster speeds without sacrificing the quality.
Johnny Rockets' franchise partners currently operate more than 170 restaurants outside the U.S., and the brand plans to continue its aggressive expansion in 2017, with plans to open in more than a dozen new countries, including Australia, Guyana, Sri Lanka and Uruguay.
