Massive Hooters Pattaya to open August

Hooters will open the largest international Hooters location in Pattaya, Thailand, in August.

Hooters franchisee Destination Resorts, will open the 11,000 sqft, 564-seat Hooters Pattaya in the thriving tourism and nightlife destination as part of a 30 restaurant development agreement signed earlier this year to expand Hooters throughout Southeast Asia.

Hooters Pattaya is slated to open in early August on Beach Rd, directly across from Pattaya Beach.

The restaurant will feature two bars, 50 high-definition televisions and two outdoor patios where guests can relax and take in the scenic views. The “Wild West” themed restaurant will allow locals and tourists to experience great fun, delicious food, world-famous chicken wings and “Hooters Girl hospitality”.

“With the popularity of the Pattaya Beach area and its multicultural mix of locals, tourists and expats, we saw it as the ideal setting for one of the world’s largest Hooters,” said Gary Murray, CEO, Destination Resorts.

“We successfully introduced the Hooters dining concept to Thailand last year with Hooters Phuket, and look forward to expanding our footprint in the second most visited city in Thailand.”

Recruitment for more than 75 local Hooters Girls from Pattaya and neighboring cities has already begun.

“A hiring road tour is scheduled to pass through Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Korat, Pattaya and Udon Thani in search of fun, friendly and outgoing personalities to sport the iconic Orange Shorts and represent the global Hooters brand,” the companies said in a release.

Headquartered in Bangkok, Destination Resorts is the company behind DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Phuket at Surin Beach, DusitD2 Phuket Resort, Sri Racha International Golf at Sri Racha Hills, Hard Rock Café Phuket at Patong Beach, Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort & Spa, Novotel Hua Hin Cha Am Beach Resort & Spa, Swissotel Resort Phuket and Four Points by Sheraton Bangkok Sukhumvit 15.
