Johnny Rockets – The Original Hamburger

The Johnny Rockets Story

30 years and going strong

Who is Johnny Rockets?

June 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Johnny Rockets first store opening on Melrose Avenue, in Los Angeles, by company founder Ronn Teitelbaum. Ronn believed that everyone deserved a place to escape our complicated world by experiencing the uncomplicated goodness of classic Americana.

Why Johnny Rockets?

Building on Ronn Teitelbaum’s vision, “Johnny Rockets” combined the classic story of Johnny Appleseed with the vintage Oldsmobile Rocket 88 automobile - two iconic symbols of Americana that are still treasured to this day. Thus, the birth of Johnny Rockets!
