CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to politics, it's impossible to please everyone. Many will disagree with the way the United States handles issues like health care reform and foreign policy. But there's one thing almost everyone can agree to love about America: the unbeatable combination of delicious, relatively inexpensive comfort food and light entertainment. In other words, the combination of sports, tasty food, icy cold beverages and pretty girls that Hooters restaurants have perfected and made famous worldwide.
This pairing of food and fun seems to have struck a chord alphabetically. Between company-owned locations and franchises, there are now more than 460 Hooters throughout the U.S., as well as several more in 24 other countries. With even more in development, Hooters restaurants are now located in South Africa, Australia, Hungary, Brazil and many other nations.
If this formula has worked so well for Hooters, could it work for other restaurant chains and franchises? Michael Pruitt certainly thinks so. Pruitt, CEO of Chanticleer Holdings, Inc., has made it his overriding mission to offer Hooters' wildly successful formula to other business owners who share his vision for their global futures.
Chanticleer Holdings has opened up the Hooters formula to owners of other U.S.-based restaurant chains, as well as franchise restaurateurs who want to open additional restaurants in other parts of the world. "The future belongs to the bold," Pruitt reports. "There are lucrative new markets on every continent."
In addition to Hooters, Chanticleer Holdings recently bought American Roadside Burgers, as well as acquiring a 56 percent controlling interest in Just Fresh, a Charlotte, NC-based restaurant chain offering salads, soups, fresh juices and baked goods. "We have developed an expansion model that will enable us to grow the brand organically and consider franchising opportunities in both domestic and international markets," Pruitt says. It is this kind of forward thinking that will bring these great restaurants to the rest of the U.S. as well as plenty of other countries across the globe.
Sounds like one delicious plan to make new friends abroad.
