Johnny Rockets Inks Colombia Franchise Agreement

Kari Hamanaka Thursday, December 6, 2012

Colombia is the next international market set to see Aliso Viejo-based burger chain Johnny Rockets Restaurant Group Inc.

The restaurant chain, which has an estimated $300 million in annual revenue last year, announced a franchise agreement for 10 restaurants in the country to open over the next 10 years.

The Colombian capital of Bogota is expected to be the first of those new restaurants.

The company has announced a raft of franchising agreements this year since Steve Devine was promoted to president of the company's newly established international division.

Other franchising agreements reached this year are expected to bring Johnny Rockets to Brazil, Peru and Ecuador.
