Hooters Japan will open its second restaurant in Ginza in early June. The company opened at its first location in Tokyo’s Akasakamitsuke in October 2010 after nearly five years of negotiations between Hooters Japan and the company’s head office in Atlanta.
Hooters Japan is currently recruiting 150 Hooters girls for the restaurant which will serve seafood, sandwiches, salads, burgers and spicy chicken wings. American Hooters girls will train the local hires from mid-May.
Prior to the opening of the first restaurant, nearly 400 girls applied for the job and 40 were selected, including 10 foreign girls. One Japanese waitress was selected to represent Hooters Japan at last summer’s Miss Hooters World Contest in Florida.
The second restaurant will be located at Ginza 8-chome, a 3-minute walk from Shimbashi Station.
