Hooters Opens Pattaya Branch On Beach Rd

Recommended Posts

That looks really unhealthy.

Lovely.

:)

You know mate it probably wasn't that unhealthy. I made the pattie from decent meat, there's loads of goodstuff like beetroot and pineapple and vegies and the like, a good egg and some naughty bacon. Calorie wise a fcuken nightmare but not really too naughty. It was delicious, thanks.

Looks good thats for sure. Reminds me of the kind my Mum used to make when I was a kid, 2 hand jobs.

Sorry, but as a traditional frog, I can't understand how one can eat a pile of sh...... like that.

OK for the wings. Fries look like sh.... as well. Mc Donalds fries for me !

I went back to Hooters around midnight yesterday and stayed roughly 45 minutes. It was dead at that time. Less than 10 customers inside, including two TGs and their tom partners, and roughly the same number of customers on the veranda. I had a beer and a bowl of chili which was good and arrived quickly, which is as it should be. I'll include more comments about my second round of food service in a separate food review.



Otherwise, not much to say. Nothing much was happening, the staff was preparing to close the place for the night and there was absolutely no hint of freelancers or other unescorted TGs. Plenty of choice of different sports on the many TV screens, but no one seemed to be watching.



It was a pleasant enough place for a drink and snack, but at the price (240 baht for the chili, 190 for a pint of draft Asahi) , it should be much more special.

It's still early days, but Hooters needs to find its groove quickly or be forever haunted by the ghost of opening too soon.

This guy was rather friendly. He asked me to take his photo; otherwise, I wouldn't have.

The bartender was also friendly and happy to have her pic taken. But she was busy cleaning up the bar and didn't have much time to talk with me.

Getting much better reviews already on Facebook from people that went there the past few days.

I think it will prove to be successful especially in the late afternoon and early night time before people go out, which could be anywhere between 4 and midnight in Pattaya so I think they will do well.

Advertising for employment at Hooters BKK, clearly mentionned also "foreigner" can apply.

PM2001, Hooters has probably more pull than you.

I doubt Hooters would let someone behind the bar without the right paperwork, whatever that may be.

I doubt an outfit like Hooters would go illegal. Specially being an US company.

they are crazy about the PC thing.

A Soi dog has more pull than me. So, that's how they get around Thai staff problem. Employ folk that knows what they are doing.

Calling Flacky 'AKA' Funky what was it you were saying that they could get staff. Yes... foreigners.

there is no correct paperwork for a farang to be serving drinks in Thailand .

it is not an occupation covered by a work permit .

so either shes no permit , a permit for another job or hooters are using illegal payments (corruption) to employ farang staff .

A lot of these expensive 'new' bars like Hard Rock, Tavern, Horizon et el have high class hotels as feeders - early evening drinks, happy hours, breakfast, lunch dinner - and of course late nightcaps, Hooters Pattaya doesn't - and that's gonna be a massive problem for them. Not a problem in Bangkok and Phuket because there is a different demographic there.

Its a big big room to fill............Their location map for the Pattaya bar on their website directs you to the Bangkok place. Inexcusable............

This will be very interesting

Hooters' local partner is Destination Properties, which has management/development deals with the Hilton, Sheraton, Dusit, Hard Rock Cafe, etc. I can imagine the Thai authorities could be pursuaded to grant a few work permits to foreigners for on-the-job "staff training and development." And while Destination Properties is developing/managing Hooters in Pattaya, it's still unclear who actually owns it. Many Hooters in the U.S. and around the world are owned by investor consortiums and individuals who remain well in the background. It wouldn't surprise me if some very influential Thais are involved and their word would count for a lot.

Hooters is well situated for walk-in business, plus the brand name is known internationally. But it has to sort out its service problems right smartly and offer a quality product at the prices they are charging. They also have to hire enough staff to allow the girls to interact innocently with the customers and create the characteristic Hooters ambience. That's what made Hooters successful in the U.S. and abroad.

One potential problem I see is the menu. It's very American and a lot of the items will be unknown or won't appeal to non-Americans. There's not much on the current Hooters menu that most TGs would want to eat, aside maybe from the steaks. Also, I doubt there are enough U.S. tourists and working ex-pats to make a real difference in Pattaya, unlike Tokyo, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Taipei or even Bangkok. To succeed in Pattaya, Hooters will have to attract wealthy locals and Asian businessmen, not just tourists. That will be the challenge.
