Hooters Celebrates With Chickens For Charity

CLEARWATER, Fla., March 21 // PRNewswire // -- Hooters Restaurant's founders kicked off a yearlong celebration of the chain's 25th anniversary very fittingly -- by launching delivery of 150,000 chicken wings to local shelters and food pantries in the Tampa Bay Area.

Neil Kiefer, CEO of Hooters Management Corporation, said, "It's what we've done since 1983, when we first opened our doors. Hooters is not just about fun and great food for our customers, it's also about commitment to our communities."

Soon, hundreds of cases of wings will arrive at Clearwater's Religious Community Services, St. Vincent DePaul's Soup Kitchen, the Salvation Army, the St. Pete Florida Clinic, Tampa Metropolitan Ministries, Bradenton's "Meals On Wheels," and Our Daily Bread.

Representatives from Hooters Foods, Inc., will distribute "Chickens for Charity," the name given to this special anniversary initiative. Hooters Foods, Inc. distributes Hooters world famous sauces and breading to grocery chains and thousands of other retail outlets throughout the country.
