Texas Roadhouse CEO Gives Up Salary To Pay Workers During Coronavirus Outbreak


Unfortunately, as the coronavirus pandemic continues, many places of business are forced to close right now. Of course, that is the right thing to do to keep people healthy, but it has left many people stressed out about finances and job security. It is great to see some businesses like Texas Roadhouse doing the right thing in this crazy time!

The CEO of Texas Roadhouse, Kent Taylor is giving up the rest of his 2020 salary and bonus. Instead, he is giving all of that money to pay his employees. The combination of his remaining salary and bonus comes out to $1,050,000. In addition, Kent has donated $5 million to Texas Roadhouse’s nonprofit called Andy’s Outreach. It helps employees in times of need, and now especially is a time of need for many!
