Johnny Rockets Shows International Success, Opens 4th Malaysian Restaurant

Johnny Rockets, an all-American dining destination that has established a successful presence within Malaysia, today announces the opening of its fourth location in that country. Owned and operated by a local leading lifestyle hospitality group, AUM Hospitality (AUMH), the new restaurant boasts 8,000 sq. feet and is equipped with an indoor playground, electronic darts, ice hockey machine and foosball.  With more than 50 employees, the new Johnny Rockets is the largest in the region and resides at popular Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall in Sunway Resort City. “The Sunway Pyramid location is AUMH’s fourth restaurant in 10 months, a true testament to how Malaysians have embraced Johnny Rockets as one of their favorite all-American restaurants,” says John Fuller, CEO of Johnny Rockets. “Johnny Rockets’ food, fun and friendliness appeals to locals and visitors alike and AUMH’s experience in the restaurant industry has been invaluable in expanding this all-American restaurant into the country’s top destinations.”Johnny Rockets joins Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, the most popular landmark in Sunway Resort City and in the Klang Valley. The Egyptian-themed shopping center stands as Malaysia’s only themed lifestyle and entertainment shopping mall with four million square feet of retail shopping, a 48-lane bowling alley, a 12-screen Cineplex and an ice-skating rink. The mall attracts families with small children, young adults and tourists. That syncs perfectly with the unique and fun Johnny Rockets dining atmosphere and design that’s reminiscent of modern Americana. The Johnny Rockets Malaysian menu features all-American favorites, including burgers made with 100 percent all-natural beef or chicken, American fries, hand-spun shakes and classic sandwiches. Just like all of its other locations around the world, the restaurant entertains diners with an interactive experience that includes dancing servers, music, twirled straws and ketchup smiley faces.The opening of the Sunway Pyramid location marks the 13th Johnny Rockets restaurant in Southeast Asia and fourth in the country, joining The Curve, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Avenue K. With about 100 restaurants already operating outside the U.S., Johnny Rockets plans to have a total of 200 locations internationally by 2017 as part of its global strategy.
