Robert Brooks who brought us Hooters and the great chicken wings is now dead. Found dead in home Sunday, from an unknown cause. He was 69 years old
and in good health. Many calls were phoned into the coroner's office but went unanswered. His death is affecting many countries where his stores are
and over 425 restaurants in all.
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Robert Brooks, the chairman of Hooters of America, Inc. who made his fortune selling chicken wings served by scantily clad
waitresses, was found dead at his home Sunday, officials said. He was 69.
It was unclear how Brooks died, but the Horry County coroner's office told The (Myrtle Beach) Sun News that an autopsy would be performed Monday.

His first store opened in Florida 1983, from there with invertors help Hooters hit the main stream. In 1984 the franchise began and Hooters is what
it is now today. Being a very wealthy also gave his money for good needs. For Brooks there is no seen reason why there would be a murder, further
investigation will show how he died. An autopsy will also be performed Monday hopefully to show any other characteristics of the death.
This man here was a good man, and with the giving the world Hooters, some of Hooters went with him as he has died, but no bad news on that Hooters
will ever close. There will just a mourning for the loss of a great man and entrepreneur.
