ATLANTA, Ga. (WSLS 10) – Hooters of America has entered a development agreement with F&S Restaurant Group to open five new Hooters locations throughout North Carolina and the greater Roanoke, Virginia area over the next five years.
The first location is set to open in Danville in time for spring 2017’s college basketball tournament season.
“We’ve long followed the iconic Hooters brand, one of the most recognizable casual dining brands, and are now realizing the tremendous opportunity to expand Hooters footprint in areas of North Carolina and Virginia,” said Rocco Scarfone, CEO, F&S Restaurant Group, “Along with my partner, Jeffrey Furr, we are focused on opening new locations and becoming a prime franchisee for Hooters through our initial five locations and beyond.”
Hooters currently has 10 locations in North Carolina and 14 locations in Virginia. With the F&S Restaurant Group agreement, this will bolster current locations and expand reach to customers across these states. Overall, Hooters is also on target to open 20 plus franchise and eight new company restaurants in 2016 across domestic states and international countries.
