West Pearland will soon be home to a new Hooters restaurant.
To be located in front of Sam’s Club along State Highway 288, the new restaurant is currently under construction with plans for a July opening, company officials recently confirmed.
“Hooters will open a fresh new prototype restaurant in Pearland including more comfortable seating with revamped high back chairs and booths to sleek finishes and top-of-the-line AV packages designed to enhance the guest dining experience from the moment they walk through the doors,” Mark Whittle, senior vice president of global development at Hooters of America said when contacted by The Journal.
The west Pearland Hooters will also feature large flat-screen TVs for sports fans, patio seating and a menu to include burgers, salads, seafood and of course, chicken wings.
“It will also feature a centrally located bar area, offering a wider selection of cocktails and craft beers,” Whittle said.
Company officials contracted with Belisle Construction to build the new restaurant, which is valued at $1.25 million according to a report by the City of Pearland Community Development Department.
“The building is 6,000 square feet with a 400 square-foot patio. It will be built at 15838 S Hwy 288 on a 1.62 acre lot,” Whittle said. “Hooters Girls will begin warmly welcoming fans in July 2016.”
Hooters of America, LLC is the Atlanta-based operator and franchiser of over 430 Hooters locations in 28 countries. The privately-held corporation owns 160 units.
