Franchise With Us


As a Johnny Rockets Franchise Partner, you are part of a collaboration of restaurateurs, those of whom are more than just “franchisees.” Our partners are selected for their ability to believe in the past, present and future of our brand, and they know we are committed to this partnership in every way.
It all begins with an application.


Here are the steps, at Johnny Rockets:

  • Step
    Step 1
    Initial Screening

    When we receive your inquiry, our first step is to confirm you have the minimum financial requirements needed to succeed. Once confirmed, you’ll receive a Franchise Application, and you’re on to step two.

  • Step
    Step 2
    Franchise Application

    The Johnny Rockets Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) is sent and contains all disclosures about our Company. It also provides the tools needed to determine your business plan. Once you return the acknowledgement of receipt and verification of funds, we can proceed to step three.

  • Step
    Step 3
    Financial Qualification/FDD Review

    Next, Johnny Rockets evaluates all documents to determine if you qualify as a Johnny Rockets Franchisee.

  • Step
    Step 4
    Discovery Day

    This is where the fun begins! We’ll host you at our Global Restaurant Support Center and give you the chance to speak to Management Team members. We encourage you to take this time to complete your due diligence prior to attending this all day event.

  • Step
    Step 5
    Territory Review

    We will review your site selections and provide you with our feedback on your chosen area. We’ll help you determine the best location, size, venue type and expression to make your Johnny Rockets restaurant succeed.

  • Step
    Step 6
    Franchise Agreement

    Once your Johnny Rockets development strategy is confirmed and design and location are chosen, we will provide you with a Franchise Agreement for your designated site. Once your Agreement is signed, our team will work with you throughout the entire process of opening your restaurant.

  • Step
    Step 7

    Once your Franchise Agreement and lease has been completed you’ll be invited back to our global Restaurant Support Center for a New Franchisee Orientation. From planning, permitting, construction, inventory set up, signage, staff training and the grand opening, we are your partner every step of the way.

  • Step
    Step 8
    When your dream is realized!
