FAQ

So you have a few questions.

You're one of many intrigued by our unique concept, and over the years we've been asked a lot of questions. In order to provide prompt service we've included the answers to the most common questions in this area. If your question still goes unanswered you may contact us at the bottom of the topics list.


Marketing and Promotions

How do I go about getting Hooters to sponsor my team or event? How do I contact Hooters about an advertising or marketing proposal?
Hooters is very active in sports marketing and local promotions so you've probably seen our logo plastered on something in your community. If you would like to present a marketing, advertising or sponsorship proposal please send us a written request at Hooters of America, Inc., attn: Marketing, 1815 The Exchange, Atlanta, GA 30339. Hooters does not respond to verbal requests, so make sure your proposal is in writing. Due to the hundreds of contacts we receive each week we cannot respond to all of them, but rest assured if your proposal is a good one we'll be in touch.

How do I get Hooters involved in my local charity event?
We have a long tradition of giving back to the communities we live and work in, and enjoy sponsoring charity events. Please contact the general manager of the Hooters in your city to discuss involvement. The best time to see a manager is from 3-4 p.m. Monday - Thursday.

Are Hooters Girls available to attend promotions, company events, etc.?
Hooters Girls spice up any event and they are available if the event meets our criteria and can be scheduled in advance. Hooters Girls make appearances at charity fundraisers, sales meetings, conventions, festivals, etc. Contact the general manager of your nearest Hooters for details. The best time to see a manager is from 3-4 p.m. Monday - Thursday.

Where can I find a list of current promotions at my local Hooters?
The home page of this site has a list of current promotions. However, not all locations will be listed. Since we became this giant corporation-type thing we have restaurants all over the world and we can't list everything going on. Calling your local Hooters is the best way to get an up-to-date list. You may obtain a Hooters restaurant's phone number on this site's locator.

Locations

When will the new Hooters Restaurant near me be opened?
Due to many factors affecting a restaurant's construction we cannot accurately identify opening dates so we don't make promises we can't keep. We add new locations to our store locator so you can easily check to see if a Hooters restaurant opened recently near you.

I heard a rumor that a Hooters Restaurant is coming to my town, is this true?
Building a restaurant and getting permits and licenses is a tough job. Taking a page from a bureaucrat's book, we cannot confirm or deny if we are coming to your city until the restaurant is well underway. By then you'll know it's a Hooters. Please note: no one at our Hooters Hotline will be able to answer this question, so please save yourself time by not asking them.

FRANCHISING & FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Can I buy a Hooters franchise?
If you have a bunch of money and have multi-restaurant operational experience the answer may be yes. We provide specific details on the "Franchising" section of this site under the homepage's "Company" tab.

Can I buy stock in Hooters? Is Hooters ever going public?
We'll sell you just about anything we have, except stock. At this time there are no plans to take the company public. If the yacht and private jet payments get too big the owners may think about raising a little moolah by going public, but don't bank on it. Why mess with a good thing?

GENERAL INFORMATION

How do I obtain a restaurant's phone number or address?
Click "Locations" and magically you'll be able to get addresses and phone numbers for every Hooters restaurant.

Where can I find nutritional information?
At Hooters we make our food fresh for you and are constantly adding new items to our menu. Many of our guests request items to be customized to their preference by adding or substituting items and we are happy to oblige. Because of the millions of combinations available and our desire to frequently give you new menu options it is impossible to provide accurate nutritional data.

I'm allergic to certain foods, where can I get a list of ingredients?
Because the menu is always changing and we frequently improve items by using new ingredients it is impossible to provide a complete list. For your safety please avoid any foods which may typically contain allergens that would affect your condition.

Are Hooters gift cards, wing party cards and merchandise items on Ebay and other auction sites legitimate?
The only way you can guarantee Hooters branded items are authentic is to purchase them at a Hooters restaurant or online from HootersGear.com. Many people offer gift cards, coupons and wing party cards on Ebay and other auction sites, but they may not be legitimate items. We would hate to see you spend your hard earned money on a gift card or other offer online and have it turn out to be worthless so we do not recommend you purchase Hooters branded products through auction sites.

Can Hooters gift cards be purchased online? Can merchandise be purchased online?
At this time Hooters gift cards can only be purchased at our restaurants. Currently gift cards may only be redeemed in our stores for food, beverage and merchandise purchases. You may however purchase merchandise online by clicking "Shop" on our homepage or by going to HootersGear.com.

How do I return merchandise?
If you have Hooters merchandise that doesn't fit or is defective you may return it to the place you purchased it for exchange. If you purchased it online through this site you can go to HootersGear.com and get specific instructions by clicking "Contact Us".

Does Hooters offer catering services?
You betcha. Hooters wings, buffalo shrimp, sandwiches and salads are great for to-go orders and big events. Contact your nearest Hooters restaurant for details and pricing.

Can I buy the Hooters Girl uniform?
The Hooters Girl is every bit as special and coveted to us as she is to you. As a result, the Hooters Girl uniform is only available to actively employed Hooters Girls. We are very protective of our girls and our brand. We do, however, offer the classic Hooters Girl orange shorts. We also sell a ribbed tank top and the lycra tank top just like our girls wear. Name tags, pouches, and panty hose are not available to the public. For these and other items please go to HootersGear.com.

I'm doing a school project on Hooters, where can I find detailed information?

There is a tremendous amount of information about Hooters under the "Company" tab of the www.hooters.com home page. Included in this section is the "About Hooters" media statement.

Can our news crew film or photograph in a Hooters Restaurant?
Only if you promise there really is film in the camera. All requests to visit restaurants must be approved through Hooters of America Public Relations. Media personnel are not permitted to go in the kitchen area and may not film/photograph in the restrooms (this should be self-explanatory). For approval, contact Hooters Public Relations at hooterspr@hooters.com.

Can I get a telephone or in-person interview with a company spokesperson?
Hooters tries to accommodate all requests for interviews. Dave Henninger, the company's Vice President of Marketing, acts as the corporate spokesperson for most matters. Mr. Henninger is generally available for phone interview between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM EST Monday through Friday. Because the company is headquartered in the news friendly environment of Atlanta, the logistics of setting up a satellite video feed or finding a crew to film a spokesperson at the corporate office or a nearby Hooters Restaurant are generally pretty easy. To request a spokesperson interview, contact Hooters Public Relations at hooterspr@hooters.com.
