Market Fund Experts Hedge Their Bet On Johnny Rockets In Australia

Australian's Affinity for American Burgers and Culture Give Duo Confidence in America's Iconic Brand

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Oct. 25, 2016 // PRNewswire // - As the brand continues to grow its global footprint, Johnny Rockets announces today a partnership with JR Restaurants Australia Pty Ltd to expand the brand's footprint in Australia. The deal includes 100 new locations across the country, with the first restaurant set to open June 2017, in Gold Coast, Queensland.

"We're excited to partner with Stuart McAuliffe and Samuel Elderfield of JR Restaurants Australia on this expansion, especially given Australian's taste for high quality food and the popularity of American culture," explains James Walker, President of Operations and Development, Johnny Rockets. "Stuart and Samuel possess strong real estate acumen as well as great understanding of the market, giving us the confidence that our brand will succeed down under."

All restaurants will reflect the new Johnny Rockets 2.0 technology including self-ordering kiosks, high-efficiency kitchen equipment and table top ordering and payment systems. The addition of these elements differentiates Johnny Rockets from the competition in the market, offering guests an authentic experience coupled with the speed and service Johnny Rockets is known for across the world.

"Johnny Rockets is a concept with a long history of excellent flavor and quality, something we know Australians will embrace," states Stuart McAuliffe, Director, JR Restaurants Australia Pty Ltd. "We looked at many brands, but what really stood out to us about Johnny Rockets was the similarities between California and Australia, from the culture to the appearance, we know this is a dining environment that Australians crave."

Johnny Rockets' franchise partners currently operate more than 160 restaurants outside the U.S., and the brand plans to continue its aggressive expansion in 2017. For more information, including franchise information, visit www.johnnyrockets.com.
