Third Restaurant Opens in Centaurus Mall in Capital City of Islamabad
ALISO VIEJO, California, April 6, 2014 / PRNewswire — Monavar K. Ahmad, CEO of Hamdan International, is pleased to announce the opening of the third Johnny Rockets restaurant in one of the world’s most populous nations. The restaurant debuted to the public on March 22nd , less than two months after the world’s largest Johnny Rockets was unveiled in Lahore, the country’s second largest city. Mr. Abdul Wahab, Chairman of the franchising group, cut the ribbon to open the restaurant.
While significantly smaller in size than its predecessors, the 809-square-foot Islamabad location is poised to attract a steady flow of guests traversing through the vibrant new Centaurus Mall. Boasting over 250 shops, a five-screen cinema, “fun city” for children and four level parking structure, the mega mall is already drawing a strong following of consumers readily embracing its modern ambience.
The Centaurus Mall Johnny Rockets offers guests the relaxed, yet upbeat atmosphere of casual fun complete with twirled straws and lively music that have been synonymous with the brand since it launched, in 1986. Mr. Abdul Wahab, the Chairman of Hamdan International, first decided to bring the global enterprise to Pakistan after witnessing first-hand an insatiable demand for the restaurant’s all-American favorites including made-to-order burgers, crispy American fries, hand-spun shakes and classic sandwiches.
“In the few months since we opened our first Johnny Rockets in the country, we’ve already witnessed the brand’s mass appeal with guests lining up to embrace our uniquely authentic taste of Americana,” said Monavar Ahmad. “The capital city of Islamabad is known for attracting visitors from all across the country, creating an urbanized, cosmopolitan culture. We’re confident that the spirited environment of Centaurus Mall brilliantly complements that of our brand.”
The highly anticipated opening is part of a strategic plan by Hamdan International to bring ten Johnny Rockets restaurants to Pakistan within the next decade. Johnny Rockets CEO John Fuller is optimistic about the brand’s future in the country.
