Former Hooters Girl Rides a Gooey Pastry to Cinnabon CEO Spot


Quick, what's the career future of a Hooters Girl? That's right, a waitress who has to put on something skimpy and play up sex appeal to make money at a restaurant chain obsessed with women's breasts? For some, it could be a claim of being ousted after brain surgery.

But for Kat Cole, who rose from waitress to vice-president at the organization, it was a move to become CEO of Cinnabon where she is helping to turn the company into a billion dollar business, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek report. And all that is on the strength of a gooey pastry unabashedly dripping with cinnamon, sugar, and fat to the tune of 880 calories for the Cinnabon Classic, according to the company.
