Hooters restaurants history
How the restaurant HOOTERS was created
The Hooters Six was a group which founded the Hooter company. They decided to open a place what would be very good place, where the people would come every time and have a good time. So the place was chosen and it was in Clearwater.
Their business had a very slow beginning. When they decided to speak about their decisions their group were arrested for impersonating restaurateurs.
There were many plans and decisions or variants of the restaurants location which was to be suitable for the group, but after months of conversations it decided to be 2800 Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, Clearwater, Florida.
The next thing what was one of the most important parts of the business was choosing a name for restaurant. As we know the most tempting thing for men are beer, chicken wings and of course winning football season. And the name Hooters was supposed they were into owls.
