Golden Corral is the ideal opportunity for independent restaurant operators because we have a proven concept and 41 years of refining systems and processes. That has led to a track record of returns and profitability we’re very proud of with gross system sales growing every year for the last 20 years. Our network is filled with a long list of restaurant operators who are successful single and multi-unit franchisees.
In the restaurant world, the grill buffet concept is a winner with consumers who want a great meal with a lot of variety at an affordable price. Plus, we’re constantly testing out new menu items to keep our concept fresh and relevant while at the same time sticking to old favorites that keep customers coming back for more.
Restaurant operators are never alone running a Golden Corral. We provide support from the day you open your doors with pre-opening, Grand Opening and ongoing operations support programs. We have an award winning, comprehensive training program that makes sure you’re prepared for any challenges you may not have faced in your other restaurants. We have the most tenured senior management team in the industry and we’re all accessible. Golden Corral is the best of all worlds in the restaurant business – a company large enough to have a national advertising budget – yet intimate enough that any of our owners can call us at any time with a question. We pride ourselves on close relationships with our owners and our commitment to help them succeed.
Plus, we practice what we preach. We test new concepts at our company owned stores to make sure they’re successful and profitable before we ask our owners to implement them. Bottom line: we experiment on our own dime- and not with your money.
While restaurant fads come and go, Golden Corral is a proven winner with owners from many different restaurant backgrounds.
