LOUISVILLE, Ky. – (May 2, 2013) Building new restaurants is nothing new for Texas Roadhouse, Inc. (Nasdaq: TXRH). The Louisville-based company has 400 locations, but the Deer Park location will be different than the rest. This restaurant will be the company’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified, an internationally recognized green building program.

Texas Roadhouse, which plans to open its doors in Deer Park on Monday, June 3rd, will create 200 new jobs in the community.

Guests will experience signature aspects of the chain, including hand-cut steaks, country music playing from the jukebox and legendary customer service. In addition, this location will have sustainability procedures in place to achieve LEED certification.

“We are excited to be a part of the Deer Park community and for our restaurant to be environmentally-friendly.” says Managing Partner, Tony Martinez.

To earn LEED certification, the restaurant must fulfill 40 points on a 110-point LEED rating scale system. Texas Roadhouse in Deer Park will recycle on site during construction, build with regional materials, and use energy saving methods within the restaurant, such as water efficiency and recycling.

Achieving the criteria of LEED certification demonstrates an effort from businesses to be leaders going green in local communities.
