Hooters, the “breastaurant” best known for its cleavage-baring outfits and chicken wings, is getting a makeover (or a make-under, depending how you look at it).
Hoots, a scaled-down version of Hooters with seemingly less objectification, will open its first location in mid-February in Cicero, Illinois. Gone are the orange and white uniforms and all-female serving staff.
“Just as with any traditional, fast-casual, counter service employee, there will be both male and female employees,” Lizz Harmon, spokesperson for Hoots, told The Huffington Post via email. “There will be order-at-the-counter (or online) and dine-in or take-away service. The uniform will be shorts or pants and a newly designed Hoots T-shirt.”
According to a press release, the new restaurant, which includes a bar, will run about 2,800 square feet. The menu will feature only the most popular items from Hooters’ current menu.
Below is a blurry rendering of what the restaurant should look like:
