Johnny Rockets swarmed into Utah, the Beehive State, yesterday by opening its first restaurant in Station Park, slated to be the preeminent lifestyle shopping center in the Salt Lake City region.
This new location marks the first foray into Utah by Alex Ghomi and Max Javadi, successful Johnny Rockets franchise partners who operate four additional restaurants in Irvine, Anaheim, Torrance, and Valencia, California.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Utahans to the magic of Johnny Rockets,” Javadi says. “And we couldn’t ask for a better location than Station Park. Parents and children can enjoy our classic American food, timeless music, and family-friendly atmosphere before or after they shop, go to a movie, or experience all that this ever-evolving shopping center has to offer.”
“As the 13th biggest state in the U.S., Utah represents an incredible opportunity for Johnny Rockets,” says John Fuller, CEO and president of Johnny Rockets. “With its robust tourism, family-focused religious community, and myriad of outdoor recreation activities and area attractions, Utah–and historic Farmington, in particular–is an ideal place to introduce our unique dining experience.”
A grand opening celebration for the new restaurant is scheduled for early June. Planned activities include menu sampling, prize giveaways, photo opportunities, and a host of other fun, interactive events designed to maximize guest engagement and officially welcome Johnny Rockets to the Farmington area.
The new Johnny Rockets Station Park restaurant is located in the Village near the Cinemark Theater, at the intersection of I-15, Highway 89, and Legacy Parkway.
