A Little History
Hooters of America, LLC is the Atlanta-based operator and franchiser of over 430 Hooters locations in 28 countries. The privately held corporation owns 160 units.
The first Hooters opened October 4, 1983, in Clearwater, Florida. The Original Six founders were quickly detained for impersonating restaurateurs, but fortunately for America, they were soon allowed to go about their business. During its history, the Hooters concept has remained true to its roots. The current logo, uniform, menu and ambiance are all very similar to what existed in the original store. This consistency is understandable given Hooters continued success and high ranking amongst the industry’s growth leaders.
The casual beach-themed establishments feature music, sports on large flat screens, and a menu that includes seafood, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and of course, Hooters original chicken wings. Others have arrived, departed, and even flat out copied our formula, but we remain the genuine original.
The Hooters Girl
Hooters is proud to have created a globally recognized icon. Obviously weâ€™re talking about the owl in our logo. But in addition to that, the Hooters Girl has become a phenomenon of her own. Hooters Girls are the very essence of Hooters. Trained to excel in customer service, they provide the energy, charisma and engaging conversation that keep guests coming back. Much more than just a pretty face, Hooters girls have game. Theyâ€™re intelligent and attentive â€“ using their energy, experience and personalities to serve guests everywhere to live in the moment and take a break from the outside world.
Hooters is proud of the more than 300,000 Hooters alumnae who have grown into their own lives as mothers, wives, career-minded businesswomen and entrepreneurs, many becoming doctors, lawyers, authors, government officials and community leaders. Chances are youâ€™ll see Hooters girls in your local community lending a hand to help some great organizations â€“ from raising money for breast cancer research and recovery efforts after major storms to support for military families with the Hooters Operation Homefront partnership.
Moral Of The Story –
If it aint broke, then don’t try and fix it.
If it is broke, still, don’t try and fix it, just do what works.
Shout out to Hooters for providing a simple and effective example of job creation as well as an economically sound perspective to consider.
