California-based diner chain Johnny Rockets is expanding into Canada with three locations in B.C. Two will open in Victoria with the third opening in Vancouver.
The burger and fries joint will be located at the Bay Centre and Hillside Mall.
While the company has traditionally sported a ’50s diner look, the restaurants here will feature a revamped “Diner 2.0” design.
The refreshed interior and exterior branding moves away from Johnny Rockets’ 1950’s-era American diner motif and introduces a modern concept.
The restaurant serves American-style hamburgers (with unfrozen fresh beef), chicken sandwiches, fries, salads, shakes, malts, and more.
The Bay Center location is projected to open March. There are no details available for the Hillside location.
More Canadian locations are expected to open in the future. Founded in 1986, the company has over 350 franchise locations in 28 countries.
