Our History

Who We Are?
That's how we start!

Founded on the belief that everyone deserves a place where they can escape from the complicated world, Johnny Rockets opened its first restaurant on June 6th, 1986, on the iconic Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California. Today, our timeless All-American brand connects with customers across the U.S. and around the globe where we operate restaurants in 25 countries.
Our passion for our freshly-made, classic burgers and indulgent, hand-spun real ice cream shakes, is only equaled by our commitment to a superb guest experience.
At Johnny Rockets we strive to make every guest smile every day with irresistible food and our passion for fun.
