Rocket Fizz NOW OPEN At The Gateway

Rocket FizzThe Gateway, a RPAI (NYSE:RPAI) owned and operated high quality lifestyle center, is proud to announce our most recent tenant—Rocket Fizz, which opened to the public on January 20, 2014. The Gateway houses the only Rocket Fizz location in Northern Utah.

“Rocket Fizz will be a wonderful addition to our many family friendly shops,” said Rochelle Fraser, marketing director at The Gateway. “The store offers an awesome variety of items for those who are looking for a unique gift or a special treat for themselves while shopping.”

Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shops stock thousands of different kinds of bottled soda pop and candies from around the country. The first Rocket Fizz opened in California in 2009, and now the company has over 50 franchise stores in 14 states across the country.

chocolate“Visiting a Rocket Fizz store is an experience and not just a shopping experience,” said Rob Powell, one of Rocket Fizz’s two founders. “I still remember the grand opening of our first store. The place was packed with nearly 70 people, most of whom were strangers. Then “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People came on and everyone started singing and dancing together like old friends. That is the type of fun environment that people find in Rocket Fizz stores.”

The new store at The Gateway occupies 3,500 square feet and located next to Morgan Jewelers at The Olympic Legacy Fountain area.

“Rocket Fizz is finally coming to Salt Lake City and we are so excited about it,” said Patrick Evans, owner of the Salt Lake City franchise. “With over 2000 kinds of nostalgic and imported candies, chocolate and taffies, 500 types of bottled soda, and more gags, toys, and fun than you can shake a stick at......Rocket Fizz will become the number one shopping place for anybody who likes to have fun!”

The Gateway store will be the third franchise owned and operated by Evans.

Rocket Fizz has more than 30 locations across the country. For more information about Rocket Fizz visit For a more information about The Gateway retailers, visit
