In June 1991, the first Rockin’ Johnny’s Diner TM was born and with it a dream that was 10 years in the making. The dream was to create a restaurant that would bring back the fun and value to family dining in a setting that would recreate the days when jukeboxes were rockin’, the Big Bopper was bobbin’, Marilyn Monroe was stealing hearts, and Elvis was King. It was a return to the days when dining out was like eating at home. Rockin’ Johnny’s Diner TM has built an extremely loyal clientele. The key ingredients that have made Rockin’ Johnny’s so successful include giving customers affordable, quality food served in a fun filled family atmosphere by friendly courteous staff.
The first store was opened in the Westgate Shopping Centre in Ottawa in 1991. Instantly it was a success and this success prompted a second location to open a year later in the Hazeldean Mall in the city of Kanata. In September 2004, the Kanata location was relocated to its present location at 486 Hazeldean Rd.
28 years later, Rockin’ Johnny’s has proven it has staying power. It is built on a solid foundation. Thanks to our loyal clientele, Rockin’ Johnny’s Diner TM continues to be a success.
