terrydawnhall happy belly truckATLANTA, GA – On Tuesday, February 11th, Terry Hall, owner of Happy Belly Food Truck, passed away. I received this email from Dawn Hall, Terry’s wife:

With a very broken heart and a hollow feeling throughout my body, we would like to let you know that Terry peacefully passed away at approximately 6:23 am yesterday morning. He has been at home this week with family by his side. Terry passed this morning with myself and his mother, Cathy, at his side.

Terry fought this battle to the very end. He was holding on and fighting so hard- he did not want to leave us, but his body just was not letting him win.

I thank you all SO very much for being by our side during this time- cheering us on, fighting the fight with us, sending prayers and positive thoughts our way. We needed your support every step of the way and you were there. Mayer, Henry and myself will still need support as we have lost our husband, father and our ROCK.

For those that aren’t familiar with Happy Belly Food Truck, it is the world’s only food truck with a Big Green Egg used as the kitchen’s grill. The story of their food truck was a testament to both Terry and Dawn’s hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.

Happy Belly is more than a food truck. The Halls were winners of the “Create Jobs for the USA” campaign. They started with a vision to serve healthy food to families. They support local by using Verner Farms beef and Holeman & Finch bread. Five percent of their profits are donated to the Boys & Girls Club to promote education programs and encourage children to eat whole foods. Their menu caters to vegans, gluten-free and the paleo diet.

Our prayers are with the Halls, their family and friends, and supporters of the Happy Belly Food Truck.
