GET TO KNOW US

Ted Fowler

President & CEO

I’ve been in the restaurant business most of my life, so I love visiting Golden Corral restaurants and talking to our guests, our coworkers and our operators.

We have a great base of outstanding operators that make up our system, and with our plans for the future, we’re very optimistic about our ability to continue to deliver our mission statement of making pleasurable dining affordable to every guest, in every restaurant, every day.

James Maynard

Founder & Chairman

The greatest thrill of my business life took place on January 3, 1973. That was the day that Bill Carl and I opened our family steakhouse in Fayetteville, NC. We raised $50,000 and took a leap of faith into the world of entrepreneurs.

When a Golden Corral franchisee describes the thrill of opening his first restaurant, his very own business that puts all his accumulated capitol at risk,I know exactly how he feels. I’ve been there.

Billy Sewell

Franchise Partner

Many Golden Corral franchisees don’t come from money, but we all share a common thread. We are hard workers, passionate about the restaurant business, have faced adversity like most successful business people, overcame the odds and ultimately succeeded using the Golden Corral system.

The Golden Corral “way” is a winner - tried and true with systems and operations and procedures we follow religiously today.
