PALM COAST, FL – February 26, 2019 – Texas Roadhouse, a family restaurant specializing in hand-cut steaks, ribs, made-from-scratch sides, and fresh-baked bread is looking to build at the northeast corner of the Winn Dixie plaza near Palm Coast Pkwy. The stormwater management permit and technical site plan for Texas Roadhouse have been approved. Naturally, additional permitting hurdles will have to be negotiated, but the community would certainly welcome its first steak restaurant.
STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PERMIT SITE MAP
From the company’s website:
Texas Roadhouse opened its doors in 1993. Since then, the company has grown to more than 510 locations in 49 states and 17 international locations in seven foreign countries. Texas Roadhouse is famous for its hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs, made-from-scratch sides, and fresh-baked bread.
Behind the Numbers:
State of the Union:
Texas is the company’s largest market with 66 restaurants, followed by Ohio (29), Pennsylvania (27), Florida (27), and Indiana (26).
Home Sweet Home:
Texas Roadhouse is based in Louisville, Kentucky. The company’s first restaurant was founded across the Ohio River in nearby Clarksville, Indiana, in 1993.
When Homemade Really Means Homemade:
Texas Roadhouse was founded upon providing fresh, quality food for a value, which is why we make our food from scratch, even the bacon bits, croutons and dressings.
Mural, Mural on the Wall:
The walls of each Texas Roadhouse are adorned with murals that are created specifically for each restaurant. The paintings are designed to reflect the local community. Each mural is still approved by Kent Taylor, the founder and chairman of Texas Roadhouse. The only mural that is provided to each restaurant is of an older, distinguished Native American that is created by the Texas Roadhouse artist. There are several versions of the painting, which honors the Native American culture.
Everything but the Candlestick Maker:
Each Texas Roadhouse restaurant employs a butcher and a baker. The butchers, or meat cutters, hand cut each and every steak that we serve. Our meat cutters work in 34-degree coolers and cut an average of $1 million of meat a year per store. Our bakers are responsible for making our yeast rolls from scratch every day. Our legendary bread is baked fresh every five minutes and served piping hot along with our homemade cinnamon butter to guests as they are seated.
Texas Roadhouse is a dinner-only concept during the week. Although the restaurants are open for lunch on the weekends, the dinner-only philosophy ensures our managers of a better lifestyle and reduces our real estate costs since we do not have to be located in high-traffic business districts.
The Managing Partner at each Texas Roadhouse has an ownership interest in their restaurant. In exchange for 10% of the profits, Managing Partners are required to put down a $25,000 deposit and sign a five-year employment contract.
Have a Willie Nice Day:
Country music legend Willie Nelson and our founder Kent Taylor first met at a Farm Aid benefit concert, which benefits farmers. Throughout the years, a friendship was formed between the two over countless poker games. In addition to their friendship, Willie’s contributions to country music earned him recognition at each of our locations with Willie’s Corner, which is a dedicated area of the restaurant that celebrates his legendary career. You will even find employees and guests around the world wearing our very own Willie Braids, which serve as a reminder of our laidback atmosphere and fun with purpose!
A Job Well Done:
Texas Roadhouse has received a number of industry and consumer awards:
