Well, we were off by a day.
Back in October, The Burn reported that the Johnny Rockets location in the Brambleton Town Center was preparing to close. The date we’d been told was by Dec. 1 at the latest. We got some pushback to our report, but today we’ve learned that employees were told yesterday the restaurant was closing and it was their last day. We confirmed they closed permanently as of today (Nov. 30). Never question The Burn.
The Johnny Rockets space is currently available for lease. No word what’s going to go in there. We have heard the Bicycle Outfitters location in the BTC may be moving to a new location in the center, but we haven’t got any details on that yet.
While the Johnny Rockets closure reduces the restaurant population at the center by one, the new upscale Ah-So Restaurant is preparing to open soon just a few doors down from Rockets. Stay tuned!
