Global franchising company FAT Brands, the parent company of Johnny Rockets, has struck a development deal to open 20 new franchised Johnny Rockets locations in Mexico.

The new locations will be opened in partnership with franchisee Virko Restaurantes SA de CV

FAT Brands currently operates 25 Johnny Rockets locations in Mexico. The new locations will be added to the country over the next ten years.

FAT Brands chief development officer Taylor Wiederhorn said: “Johnny Rockets has enjoyed much success in Mexico since it first debuted in the country in 1991.

“Travellers from around the globe love seeing our iconic brand in many Mexican airports and can now look forward to our famous all-American food in even more exciting locations across Mexico.”

Johnny Rockets made its debut in 1986, when its first store was opened on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, US.
