A legal fight between major “breastaurants” Hooters of America LLC and La Cima Restaurants LLC made an out of the court settlement over the lawsuit filed by Hooters that claimed Joseph Hummel of La Cima for downloading confidential and proprietary company information. There was no certainty about the “confidential and proprietary” stuff, but La Cima chief and former Hooters CEO Coby Brooks has announced plans for 35 Twin Peaks Restaurants.

Hooters claimed that it had secured “the return and/or destruction of all its misappropriated information.” However, La Cima issued a press release saying that it was allowing Hooters to “walk away” without any compensation and that Hooters had “conceded” its claim lacked supportive evidence.

Mr. Brooks of La Cima told the media “La Cima has never had any intention of using any Hooters information.” He said that the executives in La Cima “have over 117 years of combined Hooters restaurant experience. We don’t need their documents; we wrote them.”


Another breastaurant chain called the Tilted Kilt has launched in Arizona and dresses its waitresses in plaid. They are also opening up in Canada.

Hooters has close to 430 restaurants famous for big-breasted “All-American Hooters Girls” waitresses. The former CEO of Hooters, Brooks, left to launch La Cima, and others followed him. La Cima would be opening its first Twin Peaks restaurant in Atlanta in July.

The Twin Peaks chain has the slogan “Eats, Drinks, Scenic Views,” and is famous for scantily clad waitresses having big bosoms. Though much smaller in size than Hooters (the size of business) Twin Peaks is gaining popularity with the slogan that its business “is about you, ‘cause you’re the man!’”
