About

Our article in EATER LA!! :https://la.eater.com/2018/8/6/17656490/johnny-rockets-ronny-jockets-pop-up-burgers-melrose-los-angeles

Thank you all so much for coming to my page! Hi, I'm Dale Jockets, grandson of burger legend Ronald Jockets... or as most of his friends know him - Ronny. I am excited to bring over half a century of burger perfection to Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles. But, since there is a very specific location that we want – nay, NEED – we are having to move ahead of schedule and pay a little more for the renovations than we were hoping.

That's why I come to you, hat in hand, to help bring my grandfather's dream back to life! We are offering up some Jock-tastic gifts for your contributions, so please take a look and see what you can do. Thank you all so much!

Here is the CONCEPT DECK to show you more about our plans!

Risks and challenges

In order to make this the freakin coolest restaurant on the freakin block, we are gonna have to put in some dang good elbow grease!

Not only do we have lots of painting to do, but we also need to transform the patio into an urban oasis. That means umbrellas, chairs, communal tables, murals, and unique art installations. Then, we gotta turn the inside of the restaurant into a BALL PIT! Because of certain "restaurant regulations", there is going to be quite a process in order to get away with this.
So please help out and make this truly one-of-kind restaurant a reality!!
