Texas Roadhouse, Inc. is a growing restaurant company operating in the casual dining segment. The late W. Kent Taylor, started the business in 1993 with the opening of the first Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Clarksville, Indiana. Today's made-from-scratch food (at a great value) and legendary service began with a dream sketched on a cocktail napkin. Currently, the Company operates over 537 restaurants system-wide in 49 states and 6 foreign countries, including 516 Texas Roadhouse restaurants and 21 Bubba’s 33 restaurants.
Texas Roadhouse was awarded the Certified Age Friendly Employer (CAFE) designation in 2021. The Age Friendly Institution's Research & Certification Team closely examined the employer's present-day hiring and recruiting practices. It carefully and deliberately considered allegations of age discrimination filed against the employer in 2011. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) settled these claims in 2017. As part of the settlement, Texas Roadhouse was required to change its hiring and recruiting practices.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
