FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Johnny Rockets and eight other restaurant concepts, announced the opening of two new Johnny Rockets’ locations in Brazil and Chile.

“With these latest new openings in Brazil and Chile, we continue to build upon our footprint in South America,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Our other new locations in these countries have been met with outsized demand, which makes this an ideal time to make our irresistible food available to more local consumers in these markets.”

The individual locations are located at:

  • São José, Santa Catarina, Brazil
  • Patio Copiapo, Chile (Delivery/To Go)


The first Johnny Rockets restaurant opened June 6, 1986 on the iconic Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Since that time, the chain’s timeless All-American brand has connected with customers across the U.S. and in 26 other countries around the globe.

The Johnny Rockets team’s passion for delivering fresh, classic American fare is only equaled by their commitment to providing a superb guest experience. In addition to fresh, cooked-to-order burgers and indulgent, hand-spun real ice cream shakes, the Johnny Rockets menu also includes veggie burgers, chicken and other sandwiches, crispy fries and onion rings, salads and kids meals. The goal is to make every guest smile every day with irresistible food, classic American music, and a whole lot of fun.
