A new Hooter’s concept that draws inspiration from fast-casual chains like Chipotle and Panera will have both male and female servers.
However, if you were hoping to live out your “Magic Mike” fantasies while visiting the restaurant, you may be disappointed — servers at the new restaurant will ditch the revealing uniforms that helped make the original “breastaurant” chain famous, Tampa Bay Times reported.
The first location of the new concept, called Hoots, will utilise counter service, similar to the fast-casual styles of restaurants like Panera and Chipotle. In other words, instead of sitting down and being served by a scantily-clad waitresses, at Hoots, customers will order from both men and women, and then pick up food at the counter to take out or eat in the restaurant.
The chain will serve a simplified menu, which will feature Hooter’s famous wings. The location will also have a full-service bar.
The first Hoots restaurant will open in Circero, Illinois next month. Clearwater, Florida-based Hooters Management Corp., one of two companies that oversee Hooters locations around the world, is behind the new restaurant.
