BRYAN, Texas - At least 600 signatures from across Brazos County are on a petition to try to stop Hooters from coming to Bryan.

The restaurant, which would be located near Target off Briarcrest Dr., requested a liquor permit from the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission in early August.

A representative form the TABC told KAGS they could be granted that permit as early as Monday. The local woman who is collecting signatures for the petition says she plans to officially protest by the end of this week

Similar protests against Hooters in town and elsewhere have not been successful in stopping the business.
