You’ve heard of the California Gold Rush, but now there is a new California rush and it is with Golden Corral. The nation’s largest grill-buffet chain, Golden Corral, is a dominating force in the restaurant buffet market space. The franchise has nearly 500 locations nationwide and is built on consistent leadership and a long history of private ownership. Nowhere is the popularity, success, and expansion of the brand more on display than the California market.
In order to keep up with the growing competition and draw a younger crowd, Golden Corral is undergoing the company’s largest redesign yet as it aims to revamp the look and feel of its restaurants.
When the 46-year-old company unveiled its refined, modern look last year the initial response was “overwhelmingly positive,” said Golden Corral president and CEO Lance Trenary.

Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.
