Malaysia welcomed its first Johnny Rockets restaurant in October, and this month, a second location opened its doors there. Under franchise partner AUM Hospitality (AUMH), the latest Johnny Rockets is located in Avenue K, a 360,000-square-foot retail hub in Kuala Lumpur.
Avenue K Johnny Rockets joins more than 35 planned dining options in the remodeled complex. The center is surrounded by both residential towers and office buildings.
"AUMH is known for having an educated pulse on what's happening in the local community," says John Fuller, Johnny Rockets CEO. "By selecting Avenue K to open its second Malaysian restaurant, the franchise group has positioned itself in a highly-trafficked area with more than 2 million people living within 20 minutes of the complex."
The opening of Avenue K Johnny Rockets comes on the heels of the newly launched The Curve shopping mall location that debuted to the public in late October 2013. Avenue K marks the 11th Johnny Rockets restaurant in Southeast Asia. In addition to two locations in Malaysia, Johnny Rockets operates six outlets in the Philippines and three in Indonesia.
