Texas Roadhouse CEO and founder dies


LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Texas Roadhouse, Inc., today announced the passing of its founder and Chief Executive Officer, Kent Taylor.

  1. There was Texas Roadhouse right on the west edge of town. Was being the operative word here. I went by it the other day noticing that it's some other chain restaurant now, whose name escapes me because I never heard of it.

  2. He was a local... also started Buckhead Mountain Grill before that. Pretty good chap. Too young.
