Prostitutes could become co-owners of Pahrump brothel
A group of prostitutes soon could be co-owners of a legal brothel in Nye County if industry mogul Dennis Hof has his way.
Hof, 70, is in talks to buy the 17-bed Chicken Ranch brothel in Pahrump. To help raise capital, he’s offering his independent contractors a stake in the company.
“The goal is to have the first employee-owned brothel in the world,” Hof said. “If an employee owns part of a business it behooves them to work harder and think like an owner.”
Hof said he’s aiming to raise $2.25 million to buy out Chicken Ranch owner Kenneth Green’s 50 percent stake in the company.
