Robert Brooks, chairman of the restaurant chain, was found dead at his home Sunday. 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. He was 69.
 




Robert Brooks had a simple reason for why his Hooters chain - known as much for the tight T-shirts of its waitresses as for its cuisine - stayed in business.

"Good food, cold beer and pretty girls never go out of style," he told Fortune magazine in 2003.

Since opening its first store in Clearwater, Fla., in 1983, Hooters of America Inc. has expanded into 46 states and 19 countries. Hooters has about 61 million annual visitors.

Wow, that's a shame. A true visionary restauranteur. I was hoping they'd start flights with Hooters Airlines through DC, but this may change that.
