That’s why we offer competitive pay and high-quality benefits. So, come check out what joining a fun team is all about. Grow your career, pursue your future, root for Nascar, and pick up some skills and lifelong friends along your journey! Whoooo knew you’d look good wearing orange!

Our History

Back in 1983 in Clearwater, Florida, six businessmen with no restaurant experience whatsoever got together to open a place they couldn’t get kicked out of. True story.

More than four decades later, the Hooters brand has grown into an international sensation, with more than 420 Hooters in 29 countries. How do you say Hooters in all those languages? Here’s a hint. It’s just Hooters.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

An important and key principle of HOA Brands and its Affiliates is fair treatment and respect for all employees and guests. We are committed to cultivating and promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Our company supports and embraces racial equality and justice for all people of color and the inalienable rights of all persons identifying within the LGBTQ+ community.

We are against all forms of discrimination. We hold in the highest regard our guests’ and employees’ unique characteristics associated with race, sex, gender identity, color, age, disability, national origin, citizenship, religion, socio-economic status, veteran status, and any other protected trait.

We remain dedicated to making our neighborhood restaurants a place where everyone feels welcome, and we expect the same responsibility of our employees, guests, and third parties.
