Prime Gourmet has announced the opening of their second Johnny Rockets restaurant in India, just over a month after the launch of the country’s first restaurant of its kind in New Delhi. Located on the NH-8 highway at the Delhi-Gurgaon border, Johnny Rockets is situated in the heart of Ambience Mall. Prime Gourmet founded by Sachin Goel, Vishal Chaudhry, Bakshish Dean and Gaurav Sharma will be managing the Johnny Rockets franchise in India.
John Fuller, CEO, Johnny Rockets, said, “With a mall located just off the busiest highway on the subcontinent, Vishal Chaudhry and his Prime Gourmet restaurant group have targeted a high-traffic area with an insatiable hunger for the type of food and vibrant atmosphere that Johnny Rockets provides. Coming off the recent successful opening of the nearby Select Citywalk location, we have already seen how receptive this country is to our internationally recognised brand.”
The expansion into India is the result of a franchise agreement with Prime Gourmet, a new restaurant company founded by Sachin Goel, Vishal Chaudhry and Gaurav Sharma. With decades of experience between them, the team has paved the way for the eventual roll out of at least twenty additional Johnny Rockets in India throughout the next several years.
Bakshish Dean, CEO, Johnny Rockets, India, said, “We are equally excited with the opening of the second outlet of Johnny Rockets, and I am looking at a fabulous response from the customers. Johnny Rockets in a short time have gained immense popularity with the Indian audience.”
Much like its Select Citywalk counterpart, the Ambience Mall menu brings the iconic brand’s classic American favorites to India in addition to a handful of custom menu items that cater specifically to the local and regional palates. Items unique to the Ambience Mall and Select Citywalk locations include ‘Masala Fries’, ‘Tandoori Spiced Chicken Wrap’, ‘Paneer Philly Cheesesteak’ and ‘Divine Delhi’.
Future properties slated to open in India include; Noida, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
