The NEW Johnny Rocketsgallery4.png

What was once an all-American restaurant has opened its doors to attain a truly global culture. We draw inspiration from cuisine and culture all over the globe. We offer best-in-class burgers, shakes and fries.
  • What was once an offering of classic ice cream shakes becomes a select variety of hand-spun shakes with a new offering of craft soda floats.
  • Seating is no longer prescribed by permanent booths and fastened swivel chairs. Flexibility to move tables and various types of chairs encourages our customers to engage.
  • The jukebox played a memorable role in the previous experience. It’s time for an upgrade to the uniquely curated Johnny Rocket’s Spotify channel featuring modern remixes of some of the most popular classics.
  • The hot rod car culture once ruled the restaurant vibe. Nowadays, customers can relate more to the bicycle as a transportation icon.
  • One day, a long time ago, singing, dancing servers were all the rage. At Johnny Rockets 2.0, our servers share their passion for food through superb customer service. 

Worldwide growth

  • Annual sales exceeding $360 million.
  • 3,000+ employees worldwide.
  • Nearly 350 Johnny Rockets around the globe, including restaurants in 35 states/districts and 28 countries.
  • With ownership from Sun Capital Partners, Inc., Johnny Rockets is positioned for expansive growth.
