FAT Brands Makes West Coast Debut of Co-Branded Johnny Rockets and Hurricane Wings

by Katie Lee

Los Angeles — FAT Brands Inc. has opened its inaugural West Coast co-branded Johnny Rockets and Hurricane Wings restaurant. Located in Alhambra, Calif., the new unit marks a milestone in the expansion of the recently launched co-branded model, which first opened in late 2022 in Washington, D.C.

“Following the resounding success of our first Johnny Rockets and Hurricane Wings co-branded restaurant in Washington, D.C., we’re thrilled to introduce this unique concept to the West Coast,” says Jake Berchtold, chief operating officer of FAT Brands’ Fast Casual Division. “Similar to Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express, Johnny Rockets and Hurricane Wings have great synergy together — both family-oriented brands with loyal followings. We anticipate a lot of excitement surrounding this opening in the Alhambra community.”

The first Johnny Rockets restaurant opened June 6, 1986 on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Today it has more than 250 locations in over 25 countries around the globe. For more information, visit www.johnnyrockets.com.
