The Halls Management Group (Halls Chophouse, Rita’s, Slightly North of Broad, and High Cotton) just announced that restaurateur Bill Hall died unexpectedly this morning, Wednesday, August 19, 2020. The Hall family is well-known around Charleston and beyond for their hands-on hospitality in their restaurants. Many customers chose Halls Chophouse for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. The team sent out this note to employees and press.
It is with great sadness that I need to inform you of the passing of our founder, leader, encourager and friend, Mr. Bill Hall. Mr. Hall died unexpectedly this morning. His family, friends, colleagues and I are devastated.
Mr. Hall leaves a legacy that is hard to capture in this brief message. From the west coast of the United States to the east coast here in Charleston, Mr. Hall built opportunity for people, families and communities. His vision for the future always stretched us and made us better.
Thankfully, Mr. Hall always planned ahead and he has grown a great team at Hall Management Group and each of our 8 venues. Together, we will continue to operate in his honor and serve our customers with the kind of generosity and excellence he demonstrated throughout the course of his life.
Please pray for comfort for the Hall family. This loss is such a shock. He was the cornerstone of his family. A husband, father, grandfather. To us, Mr. Hall was so much more than just a boss. Many of us loved him in a way that is hard to describe.
Please press on today in his honor. We will provide you with more information once it is available.
Bill Hall and his wife, Jeanne, opened Halls Chophouse in Charleston in 2009.
