Rocket's Franchise logo

Irelands hamburger specialist, Rocket Restaurants provide a fast-casual service that expertly balances convenience with quality. They use premium ingredients with all-natural Irish meat that is always fresh, never frozen. Delicious meals are made-to-order with a 6-minute order-service time and can be enjoyed in the upscale urban restaurants or picked up by food-runners.

Rocket Restaurants present two brands for franchise business opportunities: Rockets and Eddie Rockets, dependent on location and investment available. The award-winning franchisor provides a wide menu for customers with plenty of great choices for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Training and support provided

Rocket Restaurants will provide franchisees with assistance and advice during the process of locating suitable premises for new restaurants.

The ideal Rocket's franchisee

The perfect franchisee candidate will be a strong decision-maker with a good head for business. Hospitality or restaurant experience is preferred, but the most important thing is a passion for the Rocket Restaurants brand and the belief that our hamburgers are the best around.

The site requirements cover a range of typical locations from high-profile entertainment centres to cruise ships. A Rockets restaurant must have a minimum of 20m2, with an initial investment of 200,000 to 600,000; an Eddie Rockets restaurant must have a minimum of 100m2, with an initial investment of 400,000 to 1.5 million. Rocket Restaurants require a portion of the investment to be non-borrowed, unencumbered liquid capital.

Rocket's's history

Niall Fortune founded Rocket Restaurants in 1989 in Ireland. Today there are 49 restaurants across Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Spain with 27 of them being franchisee-owned. The Rocket Restaurants system is made up of four burger brands: Eddie Rockets, Rockets, The Counter Burger (operated under franchise), and Flash Harrys.

As the sole-shareholder and managing director, Niall Fortune exercised his effective vision to reach 55 millions of system-wide sales in 2016, resulting in the Outstanding Growth Award for his company. In 2017, after 25 years of franchising, Rocket Restaurants was named Irish Franchise of the Year.
