Longtime CT location of Hooters restaurant closing – Hartford Courant


A popular Hooters restaurant location in Connecticut is closing permanently, the revelation comes amid reports that other restaurants across the country are also set to close.

“After nearly two decades of hot wings, cold beer, and great memories, Hooters of Manchester has made the difficult decision to close its doors,” the business posted on Facebook.

A Google search for the location of the business also returns “permanently closed.”

The Wethersfield Hooters did not have a “closed” sign, and the Manchester Post encouraged diners to head there for wings and more.

“Thank you for your many years of patronage and loyalty. We encourage you to visit your favorite Hooters girl at Hooters of Wethersfield or Hooters of West Springfield,” the Manchester site posted on Facebook.

The chain told USA Today that, “due to the pressures of current market conditions, at least 44 'underperforming' Hooters restaurants in 14 states across the country have been permanently closed,” the news site reports.

“Like many restaurants under pressure from current market conditions, Hooters has made the difficult decision to close select underperforming stores,” Hooters said in a statement to Quartz. “Ensuring the well-being of our employees is our priority during these rare circumstances.”

In terms of the Manchester site, customers reacted quickly on Facebook to the news of its closure, although not everyone mourned its loss.

One wrote: “I loved this place and the staff… sad to see it go!”

“Nooooooo. When are you shutting down?” another Facebook user wrote.

Recalling a past event, another man wrote: “I was playing jai alai in Hartford when it opened.”

Another person wrote, “Hoping the best for everyone involved…”
