Johnny Rockets opens new venue at Times Union Center
The burger restaurant made a soft opening Thursday night in a corner of the arena with Handcrafted Draft House and Sports Bar. It is a project from Lou Chicatelli, who owns Johnny Rockets franchises in Guilderland's Crossgates Mall and in Middletown. The other Johnny Rockets venue in the Greater Capital Region is at the Six Flags Great Escape facility in Queensbury.
The Times Union Center venue is so new it is not posted among the chain's locations on the company website.
Meanwhile, work continues on a $19.6 million renovation of the South Pearl Street facility.
