New Restaurant Gives Back Before Opening
(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The new Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Northwest Rochester will open Monday, and already it's reaching out to help others.
This week, the restaurant is training new cooks, meat cutters and other kitchen team members. The food that's prepared is being donated to local police, sheriffs, firefighters and guests at the Dorothy Day House and the Women's Shelter. They'll be the first to try the restaurant’s steaks, ribs and made-from-scratch sides.
Friday and Saturday, the restaurant will host invitation-only pre-opening events and raise money for the Police Benevolent Association and Boys and Girls Club of Rochester.
“Both of these incredible organizations help hundreds of families each year,” says Jim Morrow, Managing Partner. “We’re proud to partner with these wonderful organizations and can’t imagine a better way to celebrate our opening than by helping an agencies that serve so many families across this community.”
The restaurant is located near the Walmart North parking lot. It will employee 170 people. Texas Roadhouse has more than 400 restaurants in 48 states.
