Johnny Rockets opens new restaurant in Kuwait


Aliso Viejo, Calif. -- Continuing its opening march through Kuwait, Johnny Rockets has opened a new restaurant at the Divonne Restaurant Complex in Kuwait City.

Franchisee Haidar Al-Naqeeb is expanding the American chain in the Arabian Gulf; his first unit opened in December 1995 at Salem Al-Mabarak in Salmiyah, Kuwait. Since that time, he's grown his portfolio to now include over a dozen franchises in Kuwait, as well as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain with additional openings planned.

Divonne is the eighth Johnny Rockets to open in Kuwait and the third to open in the capital of Kuwait City, an area bolstered by a strong economic infrastructure. Ranked as one of the 25 largest GDP cities in the world, Kuwait City is among the world's top financial hubs – a distinction also shared with New York, Tokyo, Moscow and Dubai.

"With a keen eye and perceptive outlook of what guests are seeking in a restaurant experience, Haidar has successfully brought a multitude of Johnny Rockets franchises to the Middle East," said John Fuller, CEO of Johnny Rockets. "The consistent quality of his restaurants is a testament to the passion that Haidar brings to his ownership role and will continue to offer guests of this new location."
