Johnny Rockets at Fifth and South Streets.

Johnny Rockets — the retro-theme soda fountain eatery that has held the northeast corner of Fifth and South Streets since 1997 — has closed.

I hear that the franchisee and the property owner could not come to terms on a new lease.

MSC Retail is marketing it for lease as a fast-casual or fast-food restaurant, a grocery store, or convenience store.

Anyone remember the previous occupant of the space? Add in the comments.
