American Fiber Systems Connects Hooters of America New POS System to Remote Locations

Leading Atlanta Ethernet provider, American Fiber Systems (AFS), has been chosen by Hooters of America to provide network connectivity between their Atlanta-based headquarters and 422 remote locations, including corporate sites and restaurants across the nation. This network upgrade to AFS’s Ethernet over fiber service supports Hooters’s recently upgraded web-based Point of Sales system, and allows for a near real-time corporate reporting program and faster response time for their customers.

The Hooters headquarters location now connects to the AFS fiber network footprint that surrounds the greater Metro-Atlanta region, providing a unique bandwidth connection to 544 on-net buildings in the Metro-Atlanta market. AFS’s Atlanta network was purposefully built to provide companies like Hooters a reliable and easy way to easily upgrade network capacity, up to 10 Gigabit, as they outgrow their current bandwidth.

“Like us, the Hooters corporation is made up of straight shooters who tell it like it is—there’s no pretense,” says Mike D’Angelo, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, American Fiber Systems. “We’re thrilled to have earned their trust with such time sensitive data. And if it means we’ll get our beer and wings a little faster, then everyone wins.”

“In the past getting a fiber connection was thought to be only obtainable for large shops—and now it was an option for us as well,” stated Wes Marco, Director of IS for Hooters of America, Inc. “After we completed the implementation, I hardly think about it anymore. It is just there and it works, which allows me to focus my time on more important responsibilities.”

American Fiber Systems provides metropolitan networking infrastructure and transport services to carriers and large enterprises in select markets nationwide. For more information, visit
