Here are some of Kent Taylor’s best lines

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.


Jerry Morgan named to succeed the late Kent Taylor as CEO of Texas Roadhouse

Morgan adds the title after serving for just three months as president. Taylor's successor as chairman was not named, and no further details of his death were revealed.

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

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

He will focus on continuing the golf-focused “eatertainment” concept’s growth under new owner Callaway Golf.

He will succeed Tom Curtis, who was named COO of Burger King Americas last week.

Chains scrambling to cut operational complexity by reducing their menus may find there's more to it than eliminating items, says AJ Kumaran, co-chief of the chicken-finger chain.

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.

Domino's Pizza is losing another executive to a burger chain. This time, Tom Curtis will become chief operating officer of Burger King Americas to help lead the implementation of technology inside its restaurants.

The former diversity chief for the City of Columbus, Ohio will take over March 15 and will be the first person in that position at the burger chain.
