Rockin Joes[edit]

Rockin' Joe's is the name of four restaurants in Cork, two in Galway, three in Limerick and one in Waterford and Ennis. They are former franchises of Eddie Rocket's but have rebranded as of September 2013. Rockin' Joe's is not listed as a [2] brand owned by the former master franchisor but appears to be a variant on another US food franchise name Rock 'n' Joe.[3]
