Hooters opening pushed back to Dec. 7

Fans of chicken wings, big-screen TVs and those famous Hooters Girl uniforms will have to wait a little longer to get their fix in Grand Junction.

The grand opening of the Grand Valley’s first Hooters restaurant has been pushed back from Monday to Dec. 7. A VIP party on Dec. 5 will precede the opening, according to Hooters spokeswoman Melanie Gulmetti.

Gulmetti said she didn’t know the exact reason for the delay in the opening, but she said the response in the community has been positive, both in terms of job applicants and prospective customers.

She said hundreds of people applied for jobs when the franchise began accepting applications last month. The restaurant was expected to hire at least 50 servers, in addition to hosts, kitchen staff and other positions. “Overall, we’ve had a great reception from Grand Junction,” Gulmetti said.

The 4,394-square-foot restaurant will occupy one of six lots in The Plaza on North Avenue development, located across North Avenue from Wal-Mart. It will have a rooftop patio, a full oyster bar and up to 18 big screen TVs.

The first 100 customers on opening day will receive 50 free wings on the first Tuesday of each month for a year.

Hooters, founded in 1983, has more than 450 locations worldwide.
