Ronn Teitelbaum, an award-winning men’s fashion retailer, launched the first Johnny Rockets on June 6, 1986, on Melrose Avenue, in Los Angeles, California. He founded the concept on the belief that everyone deserves a place where they can escape from today’s complicated world and experience the uncomplicated goodness of classic Americana. The name originated by combining the timeless Johnny Appleseed story with the classic Oldsmobile Rocket 88. Together, they embody the concept of classic Americana and the promise of the future.


Not confined to any decade or era, Johnny Rockets combines the best elements from a century of American dining history to create an experience and menu that are relevant today…and will be, for decades to come.


In addition to malls, strip centers, and street fronts, Johnny Rockets restaurants can also be found in airports, aquariums, casinos, amusement parks, military bases, cruise ships, sports arenas and seaports. Notable locations include highly visible and popular destinations, including Ocean Drive, in Miami’s South Beach; 3rd Street Promenade, in Santa Monica; South Street Seaport, in New York; Universal CityWalk, in Los Angeles, The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates, both in Dubai.
