LAKE FOREST, CALIF. – Magusa, in Northern Cyprus, is the first Johnny Rockets location in the Mediterranean area. The new 3,500-square-foot restaurant plans to celebrate its grand opening from May 12-14.

Offerings will include hamburgers, along with special items like the Bacon Cheddar Double, the St. Louis and Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, just to mention a few. The Magusa menu was developed with Halal standards in mind to ensure it suits local customs.

"Johnny Rockets is proud to be the first international American restaurant franchise in Northern Cyprus and we look forward to continued expansion in the Mediterranean market," said Steve Devine, senior vice president of international development for Johnny Rockets.

Artisan Food and Beverage Group Ltd is part of a local family business specializing in commercial and residential real estate, property development, property management and construction. The Magusa location is the first Johnny Rockets restaurant from the Artisan Food and Beverage Group, which holds exclusive Johnny Rockets franchising rights in Northern Cyprus with plans to open three more restaurants.
