Bidenomics in action? Two Alabama Hooters locations to close

Restaurant chain Hooters is shuttering locations in up to six states nationwide, with at least two of those locations to close their doors in the state of Alabama.

Both Huntsville and Homewood are seeing permanent closures as the company was forced to close underperforming stores.

“Like many restaurants under pressure from current market conditions, Hooters has made the difficult decision to close a select number of underperforming stores,” a company representative said to CNN.

“We look forward to continuing to serve our guests at home, on the go and at our restaurants here in the U.S. and around the globe.”

For now, Hooters still has five locations in Alabama in Gulf Shores, Mobile, Pelham, Trussville and Tuscaloosa.

Hooters is the latest in a long line of chain restaurants to close locations this year. Red Lobster closed locations in Auburn, Decatur, Huntsville and Mobile this year.

According to Forbes, Cracker Barrel, Applebee’s, TGI Friday’s, and Denny’s have all been forced to close a number of locations this year as well.
