ALISO VIEJO, Calif., April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Located in the heart of the growing trade-area of Folsom, California, Johnny Rockets opened the chain’s third restaurant in Sacramento County.

Also owner of the Johnny Rockets locations at Arden Fair and Downtown Plaza, the established franchise figure says, “We are here to provide this vibrant, growing community with our special brand of fun, including dancing servers, hearty comfort foods and good, old-fashioned customer service, always presented with a smile.”
