Hooters is opening a restaurant with male servers! Yep, you read that right. The franchise known for, um, well, their female employees’ physical assets (yeah, okay, their boobs), is ready to launch a location that will hire men to bring us a bounty of beer and wings. However, this Hooters restaurant won’t be what you think.
First of all, the restaurant set to open outside of Chicago in February won’t be called Hooters at all. This new offshoot of the (in)famous brand will be called Hoots. Granted, it doesn’t really makes sense to call a restaurant Hooters if you’re not focusing on, ya know, the hooters.
Secondly, it will feature male AND female servers. However, if you’re getting excited for a smorgasbord of barely clothed babes of both sexes, read on.
Third, and most shocking, Hoots’ servers won’t be wearing those tight tank-tops and bod-clinging bright orange shorts. Both male and female servers will be wearing t-shirts as uniforms, so this just may be the Hooters of the future. For those who love Hooters for what it’s known for, this may not be the news you wanted to hear — but it sounds like they’ll still have the wings they’re also known for, so not all is lost.
What do you think about male Hooters servers (and the fact that they won’t be wearing those little orange shorts)? Tweet us @BritandCo!
