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.
Hooters is proud to have created a globally recognized icon. Obviously we’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. They’re intelligent and attentive – using their energy, experience and personalities to serve guests everywhere to live in the moment and take a break from the outside world.
Our guests are our first priority. From the moment you walk in the door, you’re treated like family. Whether it’s a business lunch or a group who came to watch the game, we believe you deserve clean restaurants, great tasting food and our signature Hooters hospitality, all in a high-energy atmosphere.
Building on Hooters’ legacy of hot wings, seafood and sandwiches, we’ve been aggressively elevating the experience to the top of the food chain by evolving our menu to include a delicious selection of appetizers, fresh salads, hearty sandwiches and signature burgers. In addition to our ice-cold beer selection, we’ve expanded our beverage menu to include a variety of specialty drinks, wine and cocktails.
And we didn’t stop with the food and drinks. We like sports as much as you, so we installed more bigger, badder, flatter screens. Wherever you’re sitting, you’ll have front row seats to the game.
