Johnny Rockets Opens in Indonesia

Johnny Rockets today signed a franchising agreement to open their brand of high-energy, all-American restaurants in the country of Indonesia.

New franchise owner, Wiryantii Sukamdani, who is also the President of the Indonesian Tourism Board, plans to open the first Indonesian Johnny Rockets restaurant at the new Beach Walk Center, on the beautiful beach of Kuta Bali, in the first half of 2012.

The agreement also calls for four additional restaurants within the next five years.

An official signing ceremony was held today as part of the International Franchise Association, U.S. Commercial Service and Franchise Times, trade mission to Vietnam and Indonesia.

This week's mission was assembled for thirteen companies representing nineteen brands to meet and develop business with prospective partners in those countries. 

"The thing that makes Johnny Rockets such a unique international brand is that, although people can get a hamburger anywhere, we actually provide the decor, music, dancing, food, and fun that signifies the best America has had to offer throughout the past 100 years," says Johnny Rockets SVP of International Development, Steve Devine.

"This Indonesian agreement further demonstrates our commitment to international development,” adds Johnny Rockets CEO, John Fuller.

“If the response is similar to that which our brand receives in other non-U.S. markets – there is no doubt that locals and tourists will appreciate the freshness, cleanliness, friendliness, and liveliness we bring to the table, every day. We're all about great food, outstanding service, and an overall experience that makes people smile."

Traditional Johnny Rockets restaurants feature visible grills, jukeboxes, dancing servers, and dynamic full service with both dining room and counter seating.

The made-after-you-order menu is filled with favorites that include hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, sides, and shakes that stay true to the tradition of simple, high-quality, meals that are both satisfying and delicious.

Johnny Rockets currently operates restaurants in sixteen countries, on five continents.
