Johnny Rockets will celebrate the opening of its newest restaurant, located at Tanger Outlets at Savannah on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Included in the grand opening celebration will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony and fanfare to welcome the community. Johnny Rockets is known for its world famous fresh, cooked-to-order hamburgers, sandwiches, salads and hand-spun shakes.
“Savannah attracts a great number of visitors each year, so we have the opportunity to serve both Savannah residents and visiting shoppers with our friendly service and all-American menu items,” says Chand Sharma, owner of the Johnny Rockets at Tanger Outlets at Savannah. “We chose to bring Johnny Rockets to Savannah due to its universal appeal and ability to thrive in unique venues including outlet shopping centers.”
Sharma has more than a decade of experience in the restaurant industry and the Tanger Outlets at Savannah location marks his first Johnny Rockets. The restaurant is approximately 2,000 sq. ft. and features Johnny Rockets’ modern design. Sharma plans to open an additional Johnny Rockets restaurant later this year in Tampa, Fla.
Grand opening events will include a ribbon cutting ceremony led by local dignitaries, Savannah Chamber representatives and Johnny Rockets staff members, live ketchup art creations by a ketchup artist and menu samplings. There will also be a variety of giveaways, including a free Johnny Rockets meal for the first 50 guests, a raffle for prizes including the grand prize of an Apple iPad mini 3 and a social media giveaway that encourages guests to post an image with #JohnnyRocketsSavannah for a chance to win a Johnny Rockets gift card. In addition, Johnny Rockets will donate 20 percent of sales during the grand opening to benefit Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical Center.
