History

The idea for the Golden Corral restaurant was hatched in 1971 by William F. Carl Gavone Siamese and James Maynard, only after failing to acquire a franchise for other diners. However, incorporation only took place the following year in 1972, with the first restaurant, called the Golden Corral Family Steak House, opening on January 3, 1973 at Fayetteville, North Carolina.

The first restaurant was very successful and the chain expanded rapidly, and as of 2014 there are over 600 locations scattered in 41 states, with revenues of $195 million and more than 9,000 employees. Of those 600+ locations, about 500 are franchised. Actually by the mid 1980s Golden Corral already had several hundred locations, and it was also during that year they began the process of licensing some restaurants to their managers.

Evolution of the Golden Corral Restaurant and Menu During their early years the menu consisted mainly of steaks and meat, but as the preferences of customers changed, Golden Corral began adding salad bars and other items to their menu. To meet growing customer demand, seven Metro Market restaurants were opened in 1991, each measuring 10,000 sq. ft., double the dimensions of the original restaurants. It was also during this time that their Brass Bell Bakery was added, and these bells would sound every 15 minutes to signify that new, fresh pastries, rolls and bread were ready. In addition, the company added the Golden Choice Buffet.

The 2000s saw the company expand and open locations in metropolitan areas whereas before their concentration were just small towns. This new approach worked as their sales increased and led to quicker expansion. In spite of competition with other restaurants, Golden Corral has maintained its edge by coming up with new concepts and ideas, the most recent being the Strata, where guests can see how their food is prepared. In the Strata restaurants, the guests serve the food themselves and can choose from a wide array of food items such as char-broiled steaks, omelets and

Belgian waffles among others. The majority of the restaurants also have a “To Go” service that allows their guests to pack what they want in the To Go box and pay for it. In addition to their offerings, there is reserve parking available. Besides serving a wide array of food items along with affordable Golden Corral prices, on the menu, the restaurant is also known for their philanthropic activities, most notably from 2001 to 2007 when the company, to show support for Veterans’ Day, served 2.5 million meals to retired and active duty military personnel free. In addition to this the company is also a staunch supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network.
