CHICAGO -- Hooters is launching a new fast-casual restaurant concept named Hoots -- and it will feature both male and female servers.
The first Hoots restaurant will open near Chicago later this month, according to WGN. The 2,800-square-foot restaurant will include 75 seats and a full service bar.
The restaurant's menu will feature the most popular signature items on Hooters' menu. It will also be more scaled-down with dine-in or take-out service and have a more "small-neighborhood" feel.
A company spokeswoman told The Tampa Bay Times the iconic Hooters uniforms will not be worn at the new restaurant.
