Central location offers Hooters world-famous wings on a world-famous beach
Atlanta, GA (RestaurantNews.com) Hooters robust portfolio of international restaurants continues to grow with a site selected for the newest location in Samui, Thailand. The Samui location will be located at 168/2 Moo 2, Tambol Bophut, Amphur Kos Samui, Suratthani 84321, in the heart of the bustling central Chaweng Beach area. It will open in early 2016.
The beachfront location will seat 220 guests and feature an approximately 2,277 square-foot space, plus a spacious 1,000 square-foot outdoor patio. Twenty-five Hooters Girls will be recruited to serve up Hooters world-famous wings and deliver the unrivalled hospitality known the world over.
Samui is part of a 30-location Southeast Asia development agreement between Hooters and Bangkok-based international franchisee, Destination Resorts Co., Ltd., making Thailand the leader in Hooters Southeast Asia expansion efforts. Along with a recent location in Phuket and another scheduled to open in Bangkok, Samui will bolster Hooters presence in Thailand. Hooters will also open their largest international location in Pattaya, Thailand, in December.
“What we’ve found with expansion in Thailand is that a passion for delicious food, iconic Hooters Girl service and an opportunity to ‘escape the ordinary’ is a universal phenomenon,” said Gary Murray, CEO, Destination Resorts Co. “The beach oasis atmosphere for which Hooters is well-known around the world will be a perfect match for Chaweng Beach, named by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top five best island beaches for partying earlier this year.”
With two additional locations set to open in Bangkok in the coming months, Murray plans to continue growth in Thailand and concentrate heavily in Hong Kong and the Philippines in the coming years. To learn more about Destination Resorts Co., visit www.destination-properties.com.
