Hooters unveiled a new prototype unit that it will implement in future locations.
Seen here at the chain's Houston, Texas, location, the prototype features new interior and exterior designs that incorporate sleek and contemporary finishes. New design features include a high exposed ceiling, painted ductwork and cypress wood walls that combine to give a more open and brighter appearance, and materials such as light-colored face brick provide texture throughout the space. The prototype also features a centrally located and prominently placed bar, complemented with swiveled bar stools for ease and comfort. Other seating options include new booth seating and high-back chairs at all tables with an enhanced seat size and added padding.
