Kent Taylor (1955–2021) was the founder, CEO, and chairman of the board of Texas Roadhouse restaurants. Taylor opened the first Texas Roadhouse in Clarksville, Indiana, in 1993. The Louisville-based company has grown to more than six hundred locations in forty-nine states with revenues of $2.8 billion. The company currently operates in ten foreign countries. A Louisville native, Taylor attended the University of North Carolina on a track scholarship where he earned a bachelor of science degree. Taylor was an active supporter of a number of organizations, including Homes for Our Troops, Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics Kentucky, and the Kentucky Nature Conservancy. One hundred percent of the profits from this book will be donated to the Texas Roadhouse employee assistance fund, called Andy’s Outreach.
