Kent Taylor's family says the Texas Roadhouse CEO took his own life

The 65-year-old was suffering from the aftereffects of COVID-19, according to a statement.

Kent Taylor, the founder and longtime CEO of Texas Roadhouse whose death was announced Thursday evening, was never one for explanations, never mind following convention.

The late Texas Roadhouse CEO was a maverick, and that extended to the comments he made to investors. Here are a few of his best quotes.

The coffee giant’s investors rejected its advisory “say-on-pay” proposal amid concerns about a $50 million retention bonus to CEO Kevin Johnson.

No reason was given by the chain for Taylor's death.

The trustee overseeing Ruby's Diner’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings has filed a lawsuit that accuses the chain’s co-founders and longtime leaders, Doug Cavanaugh and Ralph Kosmides, of pushing the chain into insolvency in their pursuit of a personal business opportunity.

The casual chain has yet to announce his replacement.

The two will split the duties held by the late Arne Sorenson.

She joins the family chain from Marriott.
