Business Review USA:
Today, Johnny Rockets opened a new 1,250-square-foot restaurant at East River Plaza in East Harlem. The location joins approximately 20 other New York City-area Johnny Rockets restaurants, including four at Yankee Stadium and a location at South Street Seaport – which opened on the company’s 25th anniversary last June.
A unique combined-concept venue, Johnny Rockets partnered with Kafeteria Eatery and Sports Bar to offer guests a variety of family-friendly dining and entertainment options. With seating for 85-120 Guests inside and outside, Johnny Rockets shares seating space on the upper level with the sports bar, while Kafeteria’s full-service deli is located on the lower level. To further support the community’s revitalization efforts, many of Johnny Rockets’ employees were hired through East Harlem-based STRIVE to give motivated members of at-risk populations an opportunity to succeed in the workplace and in society.
