Johnnie Haynes opened the first Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler in September of 1971. The first location was a drive-in with 12 car-hop stalls, and inside seating capacity of 48.
Over the past 50 years, Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler has been owned and operated by the same Haynes family.
“My brother and I have been so honored to work alongside and serve the Oklahoma City community for the past 50 years,” says Rick. “I was just 13 years old when my dad opened the first location, and since that time I have grown to see Johnnie’s serve 3rd and 4th generations of patrons. I’ve also had the pleasure to work alongside some of the same great employees for the past 20 to 30 plus years. I believe that’s what makes Johnnie’s so special. It’s not just about building a really great burger, but also about building great relationships. We’ve been able to do that by always immersing ourselves in the community, whether it be through our local Johnnie’s Nights that support churches and schools, or working with charities such as FCA, Sandwiches With Love, and Habitat for Humanity. We love this community, we are so grateful for the past 50 years, and we look forward to the future and many more to come.”
