Burger joint Johnny Rockets will celebrate grand opening Aug. 26

The new Johnny Rockets restaurant will celebrate its grand opening at the Quaker Bridge Mall on Saturday, Aug. 26.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony with Lawrence officials will take place at 11 a.m. The restaurant will be giving out samples of burgers, shakes and other items. The new Quaker Bridge franchisee location is owned by sister and brother Geeta and Vijay Chopra.

Johnny Rockets is an international fast-food chain with a menu built on handcrafted burgers, cooked-to-order chicken sandwiches and vegetarian options such as black bean burgers.

All mall visitors will receive a 10 percent coupon on opening day.

The restaurant is located on the lower level across from Sleep Number and the Cheesecake Factory’s inside mall entrance. Johnny Rockets is the latest business to open at the renovated mall.
