Hooters Comes to China: “China already has 580 McDonald’s and over 1,000 Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets, not to mention the ubiquitous Coca Cola signs. But tomorrow, the country will reach a milestone in its growing embrace of all things American with the opening of China’s first Hooters restaurant in Shanghai. Most of the aspirng Hooters employees are students wanting to practice English with expatriate customers. They will earn just US$1.36 an hour.
