A Johnny Rockets Love Story

Since Valentine’s Day was only a few weeks ago, we’d like to highlight two former Rocketeers who we are happy to report are engaged to be married this June!  Besides, we are firm believers that you should celebrate love every day and not just when February 14 rolls around.

Brandy and Andrew met at Johnny Rockets in 2006, and continued to work there for several years while they attended Penn State.  He a chef, and she, a server.  After dating for around five years, they got engaged last June.

Their story caught our attention when they chose to have their engagement photos taken at our restaurant at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills by their photographer, Carolyn Scott.  Johnny Rockets was a place of significance to them, and as you can see in the photo, their choice was inspired and perfect.

We reached out to Brandy about working for Johnny Rockets, and she shared: “Andrew and I loved working at Johnny Rockets – when we first opened there was a line of people out the door waiting to get in. The dancing and fun music created a great atmosphere, not just for us, but for the customers as well.”

Brandy was also excited that their store attracted a lot of celebrities, “Our first picture together was at Johnny Rockets with a celebrity named Joe Flaherty (Happy Gilmore, Freaks and Geeks).  He took a picture with us and the entire Johnny Rockets crew working that day.”

We know you’re all wondering what their favorite menu items are… Brandy can’t resist the Patty Melt and Andrew enjoys the Smoke House and LOVES our Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake (who doesn’t?)!

Brandy reports that the wedding planning is moving along, and they’re getting excited!  Both the Best Man and Maid of Honor worked at Johnny Rockets with them, and a lot of their guests include former Johnny Rockets employees. They’re excited to incorporate their Johnny Rockets history into the wedding, and Brandy says, “Who knows – we may even have to perform an encore performance of RESPECT! You never know!”  We say break it down!

For more of their engagement photos, check out the album.  We wish Brandy and Andrew the very best, and a Rockin’ Congratulations from the entire Johnny Rockets team!
