But you know it's getting bad when not even the Republicans in the Fox Valley can support their favorite type of restaurants:
A Hooters spokesman confirmed Thursday that the restaurant at 2611 Holmgren Way will close May 28.The two in Milwaukee closed a year or two ago.
That’s the same day the Hooters at 1271 N. Casaloma Drive, Grand Chute, will close.
“Hooters and franchise operators continuously evaluate the business
performance of restaurants. On occasion, circumstances regretfully lead to closing a location,” said national spokesman Scott Yates.
He did not indicate if the closures were isolated or widespread in the chain.
In Grand Chute, store manager Mike Neumann said insufficient sales prompted the local closings. He said Hooters restaurants in other parts of Wisconsin remain open. There are locations in Brookfield, Madison, Janesville and La Crosse.
Yates said the chain is actively opening new restaurants in the United States and around the world. Hooters of America LLC is the franchisor and operator of more than 412 Hooters restaurants in 44 states and 27 foreign countries.
Of course, the restaurants were kind of doomed when it was learned that they were actually the training grounds for Republican spokeswomen, like former mouthpiece for Scott Walker.
