This is the Company's 5th South African Hooters restaurant location and its 8th international location. Pretoria has a thriving sports culture and is the home of the Pretoria Bulls rugby team.

The new Hooters, located in The Willows Crossing Shopping Centre in eastern Pretoria, will have its grand opening Saturday December 14, 2013.
