Hooters Gets Reconstructive Surgery
Hooters, the casual restaurant chain that gave the world orange nylon shorts, hot wings, and the term "breastaurant", is getting some reconstructive surgery of its own.
The restaurant chain is starting on a campaign to join the
19th 21st century with new items designed to attract female customers (like -- no kidding -- salads), and a new design for some of its restaurants.
The first location to undergo this
boob job facelift is
Hooters of Kirby, in Houston, Texas. The restaurant underwent a complete
interior/exterior remodel including high exposed ceilings, painted
ductwork, cypress wood walls, and light colored brickwork. The bar has
been upgraded to included swiveled bar stools.
will serve as the prototype for future locations. So
far, no word on which of the over 400 restaurants are next
targeted for a remodel, but we'll keep you posted when any South Florida
locations get some, um, work done.
