Hooters Management Corp. changes name

Hooters Management Corp., founder and creator of the Hooters brand, has changed its name to HMC Hospitality Group.

The name change reflects the company’s growth as it plans to add additional concepts including opening more Hoots locations, a quick-service concept, as well as a new joint venture with St. Petersburg’s 3 Daughters Brewing, according to a statement.

HMC Hospitality Group opened the first Hooters restaurant in 1983, in Clearwater, and currently owns and operates 22 Hooters Restaurants and five Hoots locations in the Tampa Bay area and in the Chicago metro area.

A statement from HMC Hospitality Group says it also plans to expand and add more Hooters locations in downtown Tampa, Riverview, Wesley Chapel, Chicago and Las Vegas.

Since early 2020, in total HMC Hospitality Group has opened a Hooters location in Odessa and three Hoots, including two venues in Florida: Hoots Carrollwood in Tampa and Hoots St. Pete.

The Hooters location at Tyrone Square Mall, in St. Petersburg, will be closing its doors at the end of 2021. All employees at the Tyrone location will have the opportunity to transfer to any of HMC Hospitality Group’s 11 local Hooters restaurants including the St. Pete location on 4th Street, Hoots Downtown St. Pete or Hoots Carrollwood, according to the statement.
