When Was Hooters Founded?

Hooters was founded in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983.

The idea behind Hooters was to create a restaurant that combined elements of a sports bar and a casual dining restaurant, with a focus on chicken wings, beer, and attractive waitresses.

Hooters quickly gained popularity and began expanding its presence throughout the United States in the 1980s and 1990s. The combination of sports, beer, and attractive servers attracted a dedicated customer base, particularly among sports enthusiasts.

To celebrate the year the restaurant was founded, 1983, Hooters is pulling out all of the stops to delight chicken wing enthusiasts.
