Updated – NOW, The National Organization of Women has had it with Hooters and those young girls running around in what they consider to he half naked outfits in what they claim is a family restaurant! The organization thinks that the restaurant chains citing specifically those in San Francisco, Sacramento and San Bruno.
While Hooters does usually have all of the accoutrements that a child may require, such as high chairs, booster seats, and children’s menus, maybe the tiny “Future Hooters Girl” t-shirts for little girls are a little too much for NOW.
NOW is claiming that Hooters is violating several local and state laws which prohibit “adult” businesses from serving minors, and is in violation of federal employment standards, as well.
Hooters, on the other hand, as quoted from its web site in the San Francisco Chronicle, claims that it “does not market itself to families, but they do patronize the restaurant.” The Hooters site also infers that it serves a full range of customers, which just happens to include kids. However, Hooters does claim that a mere “10 percent of the parties we serve have children in them,” a number which, in this reality, would be fatal to what most people would consider a “family” restaurant.
