"Hooters(TM) on the Buzz", located in Durban and Johannesburg, respectively.

The trio of restaurants is part of Chanticleer Holdings' joint venture

years but thinks there is a much greater opportunity in this region.

Manhattan Plaza on Edward Street, which is filled with popular bars,
nightclubs and restaurants which will create substantial traffic for the
Hooters restaurant. The new space can accommodate 280 people, including a
large outdoor patio.

successful track record of extending the Hooters brand in Africa. We see

entrepreneurial spirit evident in Cape Town makes it a critical location for
attracting locals and tourists to the renowned Hooters brand."

invaluable. Their expertise in food services, paired with their proven
ability to identify, secure and develop our Durban and Johannesburg
locations, gives us high expectations for the new Cape Town location."

Hooters on Edward Street and we are eager to exceed the expectations of Cape
Towns' multi-cultural local and tourist communities," commented Spencer Shaw,

bringing they same high standard of service to all Hooters locations
