Johnny Rockets Plans Further Central America Expansion


Johnny Rockets has signed a franchise agreement with Maria Eugenia Handal Canahuati, owner of Desarrollos Gastronomicos Internacionales Corporation, to open eight Johnny Rockets restaurants in Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala over the next five years.The first location in Central America for the iconic all-American chain opened in Panama City in August 2010.

“The people of Central America travel quite a bit to the US and embrace everything American,” said Handal.”They love Johnny Rockets’ juicy Hamburgers, hand-spun Shakes and crispy American Fries served with a ketchup smiley face, as well as the twirled straws, upbeat music and dancing servers that make every meal an entertaining dining experience.It will be my privilege to introduce more of them to what makes Johnny Rockets so special.”
