Hooters is a famous American restaurant chain with young women. Recently, there were rumors that the restaurant chain was shutting down. Let’s find out if it’s true!
Hooters Inc. was established in 1983 with headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, US. It is located in more than 400 places in 30 states. Six Clearwater businessmen started Hooters: Lynn D. Stewart, Billy Ranieri, GiGil DiGiannantonio, Ken Wimmer, Dennis Johnson, and Ed Droste.
The name is quite innovative and a double entendre. The ‘Owl’ is the logo of the famous restaurant chain because the bird is known for its hooting. As of 2021, the net worth of the hugely popular restaurant chain stands at $605 million in 2023.
The servers have to follow several rules. These include wearing makeup, hair styled adequately at work, and being female-friendly. Also, the employees there do not behave like the traditional servers we are so used to seeing everywhere. The servers act like the ‘girl next door’ or American cheerleaders.
Will Hooters shut down?
There have been several rumors that the restaurant chain is shutting down, but this is not true. False reports claim that Hooters will close restaurants and rebrand. However, the chain quickly clarified that these statements were false.
What does the company has to say about shutting down?
The famous restaurant has no plans of shutting down. The news has been creating a buzz online and is viral on social media. Reports said that the restaurant’s sales decreased by 7% from 2012 to 2016. However, the top management has dismissed all reports regarding the shutdown.

The servers are mainly scantily clad young women ‘Hooters Girls.’ The company’s primary component is the girls’ sex appeal and revealing outfits. The restaurant was trolled a lot due to its reputation. This is also one of the reasons why there were rumors regarding Hooters shutting down.
