A restaurant chain owner waives 1-year of his salary to pay all his employees
No salary or bonus, this year, for the CEO of American restaurants Texas Roadhouse: with the Coronavirus epidemic in progress, not only in Europe but also in the United States, the president of the well-known restaurant chain has decided to take a hit in favor of his employees. In fact, W. Kent Taylor has decided to donate his salary and all his 1 year bonuses to the employees of his restaurant chain. A gesture of solidarity that comes at the right time, a time when many workers like those of Texas Roadhouse are forced to stay at home, without the possibility of earning their wages.
In addition, W. Kent Taylor donated $ 5 million directly from his personal funds to Andy's Outreach, a nonprofit company managed by Texas Roadhouse, which was created with the aim of helping employees during the most difficult times.
Like many other restaurants, Texas Roadhouse is trying to offer a service to those who feel a little down and would like to eat a good steak or simply comfort food (the type of food that is not really healthy, but certainly very good, such as French fries). Thanks to the home delivery service, Texas Roadhouse food can reach the homes of American citizens, but even this chain of restaurants is trying to understand how to carry on during this strange period.
