I don't think this business can be successful with women.

Women are more attracted to a well-dressed man instead of a half naked boy.

The genders aren't the same in this regard.


To attract a female crowd, an impeccable legion of well dressed younger men with tailored uniforms, good posture, attentive, good shoes, well-coifed and maybe a foreign accent, could do a lot better than this concept.


Tallywhackers may well do well with the gay community, however.

Only time will tell but I think women are less prim and proper than some on here are letting on. Clearly this business is targeted towards gay men but I think they'll get their fair share of 20 somethings and 40 something women as well, if for no reason other than the novelty factor. There's good reason why a film like 'Magic Mike' made a ton of money and with audiences that were mostly female.

Too blatant.

Should be "Johnsons" and just have them wear tight jeans with bulges.

We went to a cub scout meeting a few years ago. There was a deal with prizes. One dad got Hooters to donate a $50 gift card. Some of the parents were scandalized. My husband and I thought it was pretty funny. Always joke that we're going to go and bring the kids. Haven't made it there...yet.


I think location is key for Tallywhackers. Dallas has a wide enough area that it could draw in women especially for a bachelorette party. I see something like this being more popular at he beach.

Tina Fey's version would appeal to more women.

This isn't for women IMO, it's a cleverly disguised gay bar...I think it's a great idea and in limited markets (cities) I think it'll do well. That said, I'd go once, anyway. Flirting with cute guys is always fun regardless of orientation.

This is bound to become a hangout for young, giggling, ogling gay males. Straight employees will eventually quit. Gays will replace them. Before long this Hooters will be equated with the gay bath houses. I don't think the owner has thought this through, but greed and profit tends to cloud the vision.
Absolutetly nothing wrong with being equated with "gay" if it makes the owner tons of money. I am sure he/she won't mind one bit. The owner may have thought this through quite well. We're assuming that it would be for the gals, but I think smarter business people know better. As for waiters not expecting this....I am very certain the boys applying for the job know exactly what they are getting themselves into. Otherwise, they can always quit if they dont like it.
