[quote]Hooters to try again in Australia
May 31, 2006
THE American Hooters chain will make a second attempt to crack the Australian market when it opens two of its restaurants in Sydney later this year.
The restaurant and bar, better known for its skimpily dressed waitresses than its burgers, will open in Parramatta in July and Cronulla in December.
There are also plans to expand to the Gold Coast and two other Sydney locations in 2007.
While there are more than 400 locations world-wide, a previous attempt to open in Australia in 1997 was far from successful.
The short-lived entity was located in the inner-west Sydney suburb of Five Dock, with now-disgraced HIH businessman Rodney Adler among its investors.
A Hooters spokeswoman today said no-one involved in the previous attempt was involved in the latest Australian launch.
She said the new management team had chosen locations where it was hoped the restaurant would be more successful.
The sports-themed bars and restaurants feature waitresses wearing singlets and running shorts – a uniform Hooters says has not changed in more than 20 years.
