Hooters, home to wings and cleavage, has closed the chain’s Campbell location.
This restaurant, in business on South Bascom Avenue since 2008, quietly shut its doors about a week ago. The previous tenant at this location was a Spoons Grill and Bar.
The closing leaves the Atlanta-based chain with restaurants in three Bay Area cities — Dublin, San Bruno and Rohnert Park.
In Fremont, the Hooters on Mowry Avenue closed in 2013. That, too, had previously been a Spoons. The site is now occupied by Smoking Pig BBQ, a restaurant and blues music venue.
Hooters was founded in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983 by six businessmen who wanted to open a place that “they couldn’t get kicked out of.” Their business plan, according to the website: “Sometimes you hit on a big idea by accident — just by putting the stuff you love all in one place. Craveable food, cold beer, and all the sports you could possibly watch on wall-to-wall big screen TVs. And let’s not forget the Hooters Girls. It all seems so simple, we can’t believe nobody else ever thought of it.”
The company now has more than 420 Hooters restaurants in 42 states and 29 countries.
