- Johnny Rockets
Restaurant chain Johnny Rockets is making a more targeted push into Hispanic markets by signing a franchise agreement with Cruzar Group LLC to open at least three restaurants in El Paso, Texas, as part of an aggressive expansion into West Texas, where there is a large Hispanic population.Restaurants are also under construction in San Antonio and Laredo, Texas, and Arizona is another target market with a growing Hispanic demographic where the brand sees potential for growth.Currently, about 18 percent of U.S. consumers are Hispanic, and the demographic group is expected to make up a third of the general population by 2050.By 2020, an estimated 25 percent of Millennials will be Hispanic. Of those, two thirds identify themselves as “foodies,” which fits with Johnny Rockets’ renewed emphasis on food.The strategy is still in beginning stages, but will likely include the use of Spanish on menus. The focus will also be applied to restaurant design.Johnny Rockets is looking to create space in restaurants for larger gatherings as hispanic customers tend to dine out in larger parties of four or more, compared with two or more for the general population.The chain will also look to incorporate regional flavors that will resonate in markets with larger Hispanic populations.
