Franchise Interviews Meets with Johnny's Italian Steakhouse

Johnny's Italian Steakhouse Franchise
Franchise Interviews discusses technology with the Johnny's Italian Steakhouse franchise.

Johnny's Italian Steakhouse, a leading dining destination offering an everyday indulgence, is infusing the sophistication of legendary speakeasies with a modern edge - and finding success. Posting a 34 percent unit growth increase from 2017, this notable expansion showcases the demand for Johnny's Italian Steakhouse's enduring dining concept. 


Serving up classic steak and Italian cuisine throughout Midwest markets, Johnny's provides guests with a high-end dining experience without the high-end price. Johnny's is uniquely positioned, capitalizing on the demand for upscale dining at an accessible and affordable price. The emerging brand is now experiencing rapid growth, breaking into two new states with four new locations in 2018. By the end of the year, Johnny's will open locations in Farmington Hills, Michigan, Livonia, Michigan, Sun Prairie Wisconsin and Thornton, Colorado, bringing the brand's presence to a total of 15 locations.

This is highlighted by Johnny's trademark Blue Bar, a dynamic social environment where cell phones take a backseat to conversation and handcrafted cocktails are prepared by specially trained Bootleggers.

"Our growth and success can be traced back to two key factors. Our belief that enduring trumps endearing and connecting with the right franchisees to adopt this mindset," Mike Whalen, CEO of Johnny's Italian Steakhouse, said. "All our franchisees have embraced Johnny's ageless roots, each location demonstrating why high-quality cuisine, entertaining service and a good time never go out of style. We are committed to the success of our franchisees as well as working with those who will continue to help us expand our brand." We are meeting with Ajay Singh, Vice President of Brand Development for Johnny's Italian Steakhouse.  Click the play button below to listen to the show.
