HOTR currently owns a 49 percent interest in the Campbelltown, which opened January 2012 as the third Hooters restaurant in Australia, representing the company's first co-developed restaurant in the region.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Campbelltown location generated revenue of $3.3 million, contributing to total HOTR revenues of $6.9 million, with gross profit of 71.1 percent.

Overall HOTR has six current restaurants and says it is on track to reach its broader goal of 10 locations by year-end. The company's strategy is to expand the Hooters brand in emerging international markets by seeking out experienced partners and acquisition opportunities of Hooters restaurants and new concepts.
