Johnny Rockets, a casual dining restaurant from US, has recently opened its first outlet in India at Select Citywalk, Saket, New Delhi. The outlet will serve the brand’s signature all-American fare including Burgers, Shakes, Fries, Salads, Sandwiches and more. It will also offer veggie patty options, chicken breast sandwiches, etc. The company forayed into India last year by signing a franchise deal with Prime Gourmet Private Limited, a restaurant company co-founded by hospitality and finance industry professionals Sachin Goel, Vishal Chaudhry, and Gaurav Sharma.
With plans to open at least 20 additional locations in India over the next few years, the brand’s second location is likely to soon come up at Ambience mall, Gurgaon. For further expansion, the company is looking at cities like Noida, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
Commenting on the development, John Fuller, CEO, Johnny Rockets, said: “With an ever-growing population of over 1.2 billion, second only to China, India provides a huge audience in a rapidly expanding consumer market. A younger population, larger disposable incomes, higher rate of urbanisation and exposure to western lifestyles are all factors that point to the success of our unique brand in the country.”
Founded in 1986 in Los Angeles, CA, Johnny Rocket restaurants are known for their Americana flavour with upbeat music, dancing servers and friendly service. Today, the brand operates over 300 locations in the United States and internationally.
