Featured Speaker
Jamal Wilson, Owner, The Hall on Franklin

An alumnus of Tampa Preparatory School and Amherst College, Jamal Wilson played professional basketball in Europe before returning to Tampa in 2006. In that same year, he established both One Market Realty, a real estate company, and Leverage Financial, a mortgage bank. He sold Leverage Financial to GTE Credit Union in 2013 and took a two-year sabbatical from the industry. During that time, he formulated the idea for an innovative concept, The Hall on Franklin, which opened its doors in 2016. The Hall on Franklin was the first full service food hall in the country, offering guests seven concepts to choose from. A first of its kind hybrid between the modern food hall and the traditional restaurant experience. The Hall is on pace to be a $6 million restaurant in its inaugural year.
