Jeffrey Campbell, president and chief executive of the Johnny Rockets International Inc. burger chain, has resigned to pursue other interests, the company said Wednesday. Campbell, who'd been with the privately held, 80-unit Johnny Rockets chain for less than a year, in February said that the chain planned to grow to 1,000 units during the next decade. He wasn't available for comment Wednesday. The '50s-style diner chain has yet to name a replacement.

Johnny Rockets is known for its well-lit exterior. But there was a slight problem with the decor on the inside of the '50s style eateries: the artwork was identical to archrival Ruby's Diners, a Newport Beach-based chain. That is about to change. Johnny Rockets Group Inc., based in Irvine, will replace the Coca-Cola artwork with a new series of oil paintings that feature the Johnny Rockets logo.

By noon, the Johnny Rockets diner at the food court in Costa Mesa's Triangle Square shopping center is awash in rock 'n' roll. Across town in the Ruby's Diner at tony South Coast Plaza, waiters and waitresses in '50s-style garb are dishing out burgers to young, hip shoppers, moms with kids in tow and business types intent on doing lunch. Never mind that most of the patrons weren't even alive during the heyday of the diner.
