Arriving on schedule at the New Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito's Tababela parish are two Johnny Rockets restaurants, dovetailing with the official unveiling of the new airport and representing the company's first foray into Ecuador, according to a company press release.

The landside and airside Johnny Rockets restaurants are both located in the passenger terminal. The 1,952-square-foot landside restaurant seats 70 guests and is in the flight check-in area. The 495-square-foot airside food court location seats 260 guests in the common dining area and is accessed after going through the security checkpoint. Each location offers the chain's standard Modern Americana décor and traditional menu of Hamburgers, American Fries, creamy Shakes and classic Sandwiches associated with the iconic brand since 1986, said Franchisee Rafael Aguirre, who owns both new restaurants.

Aguirre opened his first Johnny Rockets at Cancun International Airport in May 2007, followed by two additional Cancun Airport locations in December 2010 and December 2011. Also in his hangar are restaurants at Toluca Airport (April 2009) and Guadalajara Airport (September 2011).

"When we first entered South America with our first restaurant in Santiago, Chile, in July 2010, we recognized the potential for our all-American brand in this diverse, vibrant and rapidly growing economic area," said Steve Devine, president of Johnny Rockets International. "We're delighted that Raphael has brought our unique dining experience to Ecuador, and look forward to future South American expansion in Brazil, Colombia and Peru."
