Hooters is a sports bar and grill that prides itself on good food and the globally recognized “Hooters Girls”. They provide the American way of eating and are open for lunch and dinner. With their friendly atmosphere, sex appeal, and American made menu, Hooters is sure to have something for everyone.
The atmosphere is what they pride themselves in. The restaurant was started in Florida with a casual, beach theme. They have kept that theme going in each restaurant with their music, wide variety of food, drinks, and sports being played on wide, flat screens available in every area of the restaurant. The atmosphere is always kept friendly with an all female serving staff who are happy to help with anything.
The restaurant’s company is based in Atlanta, however the first restaurant was established in Clearwater, Florida. Six investors and business men decided to open a restaurant together. They had no previous experience in the restaurant business but are now known as the “Hooters Six”.
They wanted to create a restaurant that embodied their two favorite things- good food and fun music. This is exactly what they did. The food they decided to serve were always American finger foods. The music was kept upbeat to reflect a good time with friends. The entire restaurant was made out of wood not only for looks, but for cost efficiency.
The original restaurant was a completely thrown together ordeal. There was only one girl and the six men working on the restaurant. One woman inspired the Hooters Girl outfit. She was known for wearing jogging shorts and white tank tops. This became the official outfit. In order to work at the restaurant, the girls are required to have the “All American Cheerleader, Surfer, Girl Next Door” look.
Hooters provides well cooked, good tasting food. Their menu has a wide variety of appetizers, burgers, salad, soups, wings, seafood, sandwiches and desserts. The burgers are perhaps the most delicious item on the menu. Every burger is made with quality product, seasoned, and cooked well. Their wide variety of menu and having the knowledge that whatever food you get will be delicious makes choosing a meal hard to do.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is friendly and fun. You automatically feel welcomed when you walk in. Service is fast and reliable. The girls are always willing to talk and help you with whatever you need. You are treated well and like a valued customer. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating, each with a TV playing whatever sport you want to watch.
