Johnny Rockets Opens at One Penn Plaza

Global restaurant chain known for its retro look unveils new design on 34th Street.

The western edge of the 34th Street District welcomed another exciting addition to the food scene when Johnny Rockets opened at One Penn Plaza on January 5. Long known for its retro 50’s look and classic burgers, shakes, and fries, the new Johnny Rockets features a sleek modern design while continuing to offer the same fresh, made-to-order food. The chain has sought to increase its presence in New York City, and it’s no accident the chain chose this location.

“New York is an important market for Johnny Rockets. Our goal is to expand in the New York area in the very near future,” said the company’s CEO and President John Maguire. “Our new restaurant at One Penn Plaza is an ideal location in the heart of a busy shopping, entertainment, and transportation hub.”

The new restaurant, located at Park East at One Penn Plaza, offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and stays open late for folks in need of a bite to eat after a game or a night out. 34th Street Partnership is pleased to welcome Johnny Rockets to the neighborhood, and we wish them well in their new space.
