For more than 20 years, Johnny Rockets has offered the food, fun and friendliness reminiscent of feel-good Americana. Every Johnny Rockets restaurant offers its guests simple, great-tasting food from a menu of all-American favorites, including juicy hamburgers and hand-dipped shakes and malts.

Headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California, Johnny Rockets has 365 corporate and franchisee-owned restaurants in the United States and 26 countries, including those found in Six Flags amusement parks and aboard Royal Caribbean cruise ships.

Johnny Rockets is currently sub franchising new restaurants in the UAE and Oman.

This is a great time to invest in a solid concept that's bucking current economic trends. We actually opened over 100 new Johnny Rockets restaurants during the last three financially turbulent years. One third of those restaurants were opened outside of the USA and we are looking to continue that trend this year. With Johnny Rockets entering new markets like Italy, Panama, Tunisia and Germany and opening soon in Russia, there has never been a better time to join the Johnny Rockets family. In fact, we currently have several sub franchise opportunities available in the UAE and exclusive territory development opportunities in Oman and we're actively seeking franchise partners to help us achieve the next phase of growth. If you have an appetite for owning/investing in a unique dining experience, the time is right and Johnny Rockets is the brand!

Johnny Rockets appeals to a wide range of demographics and our flexible business model and adaptive footprint are suitable for a variety of applications. Of course, you'll find Johnny Rockets in typical malls and strip well as in malls that are far from typical, like Mall of America, in Minneapolis; The Avenues Mall, in Kuwait City; The Dubai Mall, in Dubai; and Fashion Show Mall, on the Las Vegas Strip. Our Franchise Partners have also established successful Johnny Rockets businesses in airports, sports stadiums and amusement parks, as well as on military bases and cruise ships.

Training & Support

1) Management Training - consists of a four-week management-training program for each of your restaurant managers.

2) Pre and Post Opening Support - Our Certified Trainers will assist you with the pre and post opening of your sub franchised restaurants in the UAE and Oman for a period of seven to ten days.

The team will spend the Grand Opening day and the following days days working in the restaurant with your management team and staff to ensure that Johnny Rockets standards are implemented as per the Johnny Rockets Manual and Systems.

3) Marketing Support - The marketing team, provides you with ongoing support for marketing items such as in restaurant point of purchase materials, menu templates and LSM programs. You will have access to all available marketing, operational, development and purchasing materials.
