Marc Abenoja

An integral part of Johnny Rockets since June 1993, Abenoja has vast experience with the brand. Marc Abenoja served as a Certified Training Manager for seven years, showing the ropes to hundreds of international and domestic restaurant managers. He was also a key element in the brand’s successful expansion on the East Coast, including Florida, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Atlanta, Tennessee and Virginia, as well as what are now 14 restaurants on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ships. From there, he became Johnny Rockets’ District Manager for Florida and Tennessee, then Corporate Training Manager, in 2000. In his current position as the Director of International Training and New Markets, Abenoja manages all training aspects of new restaurant openings for our international growth. Last year, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce recently presented Johnny Rockets with the President’s “E” Award, the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. Johnny Rockets was honored based on our franchise and sales success in international markets. Marc’s contributions played an integral part in receiving the President’s “E” Award. Johnny Rockets now operates in over 32 different countries around the world and will grow to over 40 in 2017.
