American restaurant chain Johnny Rocket has opened its first restaurant in the heart of Victoria Island, Lagos.
The restaurant has seating for approximately 85 people. Along with hotel guests and meeting attendees, the restaurant’s flavorful fare and fun dining ambiance aims to attract local residents and visitors to this exclusive community.
“Nigerians have long craved American products,” explained Nahman, whose family’s company, Nahman Construction Company Ltd., has specialised in high-end residential, commercial and government projects in Nigeria since 1969.
The new Victoria Island Johnny Rockets restaurant offers tasty all-American fare along with regional favorites. Jollof Rice and Fried Rice have been added to appeal to local palates.
“As the most populous country in Africa, Nigeria represents a tremendous opportunity for our iconic, all-American brand,” said Steve Devine, President of Johnny Rockets International.
Johnny Rockets’ new Victoria Island restaurant is the first of several restaurants planned in Africa, including future restaurants in Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.
