Swanson a finalist for Managing Partner of the Year

Dave Swanson, of Phoenix, was named a finalist for the Texas Roadhouse Managing Partner of the Year award, which is the company’s highest honor. He was chosen from a pool of more than 400.

The award recognizes the managing partner who best displays characteristics of an operational leader. Swanson and the other 19 finalists will be judged on seven criteria: food, service, marketing, culture, people, profits and pride and passion.

The Managing Partner of the Year will be announced at the company’s annual conference in Amelia Island, Fla. later this month. The winner will receive a new Corvette, a check for $25,000, a lead crystal replica of a Texas Roadhouse restaurant, a Managing Partner of the Year ring, and a gold belt buckle.

Swanson has been the managing partner of the Phoenix location at 1616 N. 75th Ave. for 12 years. He has been with Texas Roadhouse for 15 years, and this is his sixth nomination for Managing Partner of the Year and fifth time as a finalist.
