Great news for those of you who love delicious wings served in tank-tops: Hooters is on the block. The restaurant needs cash, ASAP, and analysts are guesstimating it could probably be yours for about $250 million. There may be a few issues for you to deal with upon acquiring the place, namely getting rid of this guy (though hopefully not food eating contests on a voluntary basis in general, as there’s no need to punish everyone):
If an upcoming episode of the CBS reality show “Undercover Boss” is any indication, there may be management issues, too. In an episode slated to run Sunday, CEO Coby Brooks discovers a restaurant supervisor staging an eating contest for female employees, forcing them to bury their faces in platefuls of food without using their hands.
“Ladies, if you want to leave early today, you’re going to play my reindeer game,” the manager says, howling “Hoooo, doggie!” as the women eat.
Also, if you think you want a piece of this, you’d better act fast. The company is said to be in advanced talks with a Connecticut-based investor.
