Increasing Global Expansion, Johnny Rockets Appoints Scott Chorna As Senior Vice President Of International Development

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - Nov. 11, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Fun, flavorful and friendly restaurant franchisor, Johnny Rockets, which boasts over 300 stores worldwide, announces today the appointment of Scott Chorna as Senior Vice President of International Development. In his previous position, Chorna served as Director of International New Business for FOCUS Brands, a multi-brand fast food franchisor with over 3,800 units globally. Chorna officially joins the Johnny Rockets senior leadership team on November 11, 2013.

While at FOCUS Brands, Chorna established over 25 new international markets for high-profile brands such as Cinnabon, Carvel Ice Cream, Schlotzsky's, Moe's Southwest Grill, and Auntie Annie's Pretzels. An international business management expert who has also worked for ABSOLUT VODKA, Subway, Baskin-Robbins, and Dunkin' Donuts throughout his accomplished career, Chorna has lived in three major metropolitan Asian cities (Taipei, Beijing, and Hong Kong), speaks fluent Mandarin, and has developed an acute understanding of the region.

"Johnny Rockets, with its modern and fun take on the classic American experience - hamburgers and rock and roll - is perfectly poised to prosper in the Asia Pacific Region, as evidenced by its initial successes in South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia," stated Chorna.

President and CEO John Fuller concurred, "Scott's impressive track record navigating emerging middle-class markets, like ones in Asia and Australia, made him the obvious choice to expand Johnny Rockets' presence across the globe."

Chorna acquired his Bachelors of Arts degree in East Asian History from the University of California, Santa Barbara. After many years of living abroad, he is happy to be back in Pacific Palisades, California with his wife and two children, where he visits Johnny Rockets, Santa Monica whenever the urge for an Original with American Fries and any one of their 30 hand-spun shake flavors.
