Aliso Viejo / CA. (jr) Johnny Rockets restaurant chain welcomes the community to its new restaurant in Nicosia, Cyprus. The chain is known for its fresh, cooked-to-order burgers, sandwiches, salads and hand-spun shakes. «We are excited to bring the brand to Nicosia», said Daghan Akari, franchise owner of the Nicosia Johnny Rockets. «There is currently no full-service, dine-in restaurant offering American fare in our country».
