It's no secret that the economy isn't doing so well.
Sure, things aren't as doom and gloom as they were a few years ago, and we don't hear many stories about things looking up anymore.
But, there is this. ...
It seems that while national restaurant chains like Applebee's and Bennigan's have struggled in recent years, a smaller niche type of restaurant has actually been seeing an uptick: the "breastaurant."
It's basically a whole market of Hooters-like themed grilles with names like Twin Peaks, Titled Kilt and Mugs N Jugs (subtle, we know) -- and, they all feature waitresses in skimpy outfits, serving beer and fried food while televisions play whatever game is on in the background.
And, even though this small category of the food service industry only makes up about 1% of restaurants nationally, there has been a jump of 30% more opening in the last year.
The best part is that many of the owners of the small chain bristle at being called "breastaurant," arguing that though they might be PG-13, they're not X-rated restaurants. Some even pride themselves on the fact that a few customers bring their kids.
