Hooters Meaning UK & USA
The Hooters meaning name is a double entendre referring to both its owl logo, a bird known for its “hooting meaning” calls, and an American slang term for women’s breasts popularized by comedian Steve Martin on the hit comedy series Saturday Night Live.
Hooters meaning also had an airline, Hooters meaning Air, with a normal flight crew and flight attendants and scantily clad “Hooters Girls” on every flight
Hooters meaning, Inc., was incorporated in Clearwater, Florida, on April 1, 1983, by six Clearwater businessmen: Lynn D. Stewart, Gil DiGiannantonio, Ed Droste, Billy Ranieri, Ken Wimmer and Dennis Johnson.
The date was an April Fools’ Day joke because the original six owners believed that their prospect was going to fail. Their first Hooters restaurant was built on the site of a former rundown nightclub that had been purchased at a low price.
So many businesses had folded in that particular location that the Hooters meaning founders built a small “graveyard” at the front door for each that had come and gone before them. The first restaurant opened its doors on October 4, 1983, in Clearwater.

Customers can go to many places for wings and beer, but it is our Hooters Girls who make our concept unique. Hooters meaning offers its customers the look of the “All American Cheerleader, Surfer, Girl Next Door.
My job duties require I wear the designated Hooters Girl uniform.
My job duties require that I interact with and entertain the customers.
The Hooters concept is based on female sex appeal and the work environment is one in which joking and entertaining conversations are commonplace
