According to Acton's Building Commissioner, Frank Ramsbottom, word is Johnny Rockets will be filling the vacant spot where Friendly's used to be on 387 Massachusetts Avenue, Acton. The company that owns the building, Edens, confirmed Johnny Rockets is officially coming to Acton, but there is no official word as to when it will be open.
Ramsbottom said a permit was recently filed to work on the construction on the exterior of the building and a permit to remodel the interior is soon to come.
UPDATE (12:45 p.m.): According to Cozette Phifer-Koerber - VP, Brand Marketing/Communications for Johnny Rockets, "our hamburgers come with a choice of four protein options: ground beef, ground turkey, chicken breast or Boca burger. We also have a variety of salads available and are testing many, more healthful menu options."
