Johnny Rockets’ new restaurant at 395 Santa Monica Place is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Santa Monica Place welcomed the addition of Johnny Rockets to its food court on Friday.

John Fuller, CEO of Johnny Rockets, said the new 931-square-foot location is a third of a mile away from the brand’s most successful company-owned restaurant at 1322 Third Street.

“Ever since our Third Street Promenade restaurant opened in October 1995, it’s been extremely popular – and with the tremendous influx of visitors and residents to this thriving seaside community, demand has only continued to grow,” Fuller said. “By having two Johnny Rockets in the area, we’re able to make our all-American brand accessible and convenient for anyone looking for a delicious meal, timeless ambiance and engaging dining experience.”

The new location is owned by long-time Johnny Rockets franchise partner Mary Khaleghian, who now manages seven restaurants in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Huntington Beach, Anaheim and Los Angeles.

“Having operated Johnny Rockets restaurants in Southern California beach communities since 1992, we know what area residents and tourists are looking for in a fun, flavorful and friendly dining experience,” said Khaleghian.
