Johnny Rockets Revamps in a New Location
Johnny Rockets opens its newest restaurant at The Shops at Gatlinburg Town Center in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Situated on the outskirts of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the only free national park in the country, the 25-year old Johnny Rockets brand is introducing its new design, updated music program and classic American cuisine to the quaint resort town.
Johnny Rockets serves signature menu favorites including hamburgers, American fries and shakes, in a fun and upbeat environment that is well suited to tourist-driven areas, like Gatlinburg. The restaurant is located in the center of downtown, by the space needle, mountain sky lift and other nearby attractions including Ripley's Believe It or Not and the Fort Fun Family Entertainment Center, creating a new gathering place for locals and visitors, catering especially to families.
"The charming simple goodness of small town life in Gatlinburg aligns with Johnny Rockets' classic food, friendliness and feel-good Americana," says Chad Kennedy, Johnny Rockets Franchise Owner.
"There is something for everyone who visits this mountain resort destination and we want to bring the delicious all-American fare that guests have come to know and love."
Soon, the Gatlinburg Johnny Rockets will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night service, catering to locals who work late and visitors who want early morning comfort foods.
The new 2,000 square foot Johnny Rockets restaurant employs 25 local residents, from all over the U.S. and countries that include Honduras and Russia
