The owners of Hooters franchise in Texas say the restaurant is still coming to Bryan. But it may take awhile.
After News 3 reported Monday on the uncertainty surrounding the Bryan location, officials with Texas Wings Inc. responded by saying they haven't abandoned the site, it has just been delayed.
They say protests coupled with a lengthy alcohol license process for the Bryan Hooters forced them to rearrange their expansion plans.
"We still do intend on coming to Bryan," said Mike Herrick, Texas Wings Inc. Executive Vice President. "Because of the protest we had four stores that moved ahead of Bryan in the development schedule. So now we've got to put Bryan back on the development schedule."
City of Bryan officials said they were told last week by other company representatives that the Bryan location was in doubt due to cost overruns at two new Houston-area Hooters.
