Callings all Johnnys! Johnny Rockets Celebrates National Johnny Day with Free Shakes

Johnnys Across the U.S. Can Head to Their Closest Participating Location for a Classic Hand-Spun Shake

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Johnny Rockets, the timeless, all-American burger brand, announces it’s giving Johnnys everywhere a delicious opportunity to celebrate their namesake day. On National Johnny Day, December 5, participating Johnny Rockets restaurants will offer anyone with the name Johnny a free shake with any purchase.

Name’s not Johnny? No worries! Non-Johnnys (including Jonnys, Jons and Jans) can still get a free shake with the purchase of another shake – all you have to do is swing by for the best day ever enjoying the delicious, hand-spun shakes that Johnny Rockets is famous for. To take advantage of this unique offer, Johnnys just need to show a valid ID at participating Johnny Rockets locations, while non-Johnnys can mention the promo in-store.

"We're excited to celebrate a day that was made for us and all of the Johnnys with this unique offer," says Taylor Fischer, Vice President of Marketing at FAT Brands. "Johnny Rockets has always been about creating moments that bring people together, and what better way to do that than by raising a glass – or in this case, a shake – to all the Johnnys out there!"

The first Johnny Rockets restaurant opened June 6, 1986, on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. Since that time, the chain’s timeless all-American brand has connected with customers across the U.S. and in 25 other countries around the globe.
