The first Hooters opened October 4, 1983, in Clearwater, Fla., by the original “Hooters Six” founders, and the brand has grown to become one of the most successful dining destinations in the world. Hooters said in a release that the company is proud of the more than 300,000 Hooters Girl alumnae who have grown into their own lives as mothers, wives, career-minded businesswomen and entrepreneurs, many becoming doctors, lawyers, actors, authors, government officials and community leaders.
Recently, Hooters unveiled a new contemporary restaurant design with the remodeled Hooters of Kirby, Texas, and the ground-up prototype Hooters of Slidell, La., just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. Not only did its locations receive updates, but the beloved “Hootie” logo received a modern makeover, giving the iconic owl a sleek new look that embodies the brand’s contemporary transformation while keeping in line with its iconic heritage. Hooters menus continue to evolve and innovate with a broader offering of fresh salads, sandwiches, seafood dishes and other delicious options through limited time offer menus, like the Gridiron Grub menu for football season.
To celebrate the nostalgia of the occasion, Hooters will share photos from the past leading to present day Hooters on its Facebook page and social channels. Guests who join in the 30th birthday festivities are encouraged to share their party photos through social channels using the hashtag #StepIntoAwesome.
