For years you could find Hooters restaurants all over the state of Michigan. Unfortunately, that's just not the case anymore.

Hooters is still thriving in some states but Michigan isn't one of them. For the past decade, the Hooters franchise has been saying goodbye to cities across the state. Hooters in Grand Rapids closed back in 2012, the Lansing location followed in 2019, and most recently (2021) Hooters in Roseville closed up shop for good.

As of 2022, there are only three Hooters locations that are still open and operating in Michigan.

Michigan Hooters Locations

  • Hooters - Miller Road in Flint
  • Hooters - Bay Street in Saginaw
  • Hooters - Eureka Road in Taylor

I thought for sure we would lose the Flint location during the pandemic but somehow they managed to pull through. I still go to Hooters in Flint from time to time so I'm glad they're still around. It's always fun to grab the guys and roll in there every once in a while.

How many Hooters locations are there in the United States in 2022?

There are just over 300 Hooters locations that are still open in 2022. That's a significant drop since 2018 when there were over 400. You'll find the majority of Hooters locations in Texas (54), Florida (49), and Georgia (20).

According to Global Franchise, Hooters has 91 restaurants outside of the United States including Europe, South Africa, Russia, Central, and Latin America, Australia, and Asia. In 2017, Hooters launched restaurants in four new countries including Lithuania, Spain, Indonesia, and Bolivia.

The doors to the first Hooters restaurant opened in Clearwater, Florida in 1983.

You'd think an appearance on a national TV show like Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives or Restaurant: Impossible would guarantee success for a restaurant.

That hasn't been the case for these six restaurants, all of which have closed after being featured on national television.
