Aside from their chicken wings, Hooters is probably best known for their female servers dressed in tank tops and shorts. With the New Year upon us, the company is trying something new in the form of a brand-new fast-casual wing restaurant featuring…fully clothed workers.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Hooters Management Corp. will be opening a new spot outside of Chicago called Hoots, A Hooters Joint. The upcoming restaurant will feature a one-page abbreviated menu from Hooters’ full-service restaurants.
It’s essentially an express Hooters.
According to a statement from Spokesperson Lizz Harmon, the concept will feature both male and female servers who will not be wearing the parent restaurant’s revealing outfits. That’s cool. We’re only gonna be there for the wings, anyways.
Hoots is slated to open sometime in mid-February in Cicero, Ill.
