ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – Franchise owner Camamiq Foods Inc. announced the opening of Johnny Rockets’ fourth restaurant in the Philippines on Dec. 14 in Taguig City, Philippines, in Metro Manila. A fifth restaurant is scheduled to open in Alabang Town Center, in southern Metro Manila, in January.
The menu for these four restaurants combines Johnny Rockets comfort foods with regional favorites. In addition to hamburgers, the restaurants offer specialty items such as spaghetti and fried chicken, as well as local flavors such as longaniza sausage, among other foods.
"The inherent value of Johnny Rockets as a brand is evident by how strongly the Philippines have embraced the experience," said Steve Devine, senior vice president of international development for Johnny Rockets. "We've seen comparable restaurant sales continue to rise in popular international tourist areas, even when foot traffic is declining, which has been very enticing as we speak with other prospective franchise owners in Southeast Asia."
