RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 5, 2020) – Golden Corral has been “The Only One for Everyone” for nearly 50 years, and has evolved into a signature, endless buffet that features a diverse array of delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The brand’s latest television spot, which plays on the classic adage “You Are What You Eat,” builds a colorful depiction of exactly what Golden Corral does as The Only One For Everyone – attracts appetites of all styles and preferences. The campaign will hit the airwaves nationwide on Wednesday, Feb. 5.
“Individuality is at the core of Golden Corral,” said Senior Vice President of Marketing Tim Schroder. “With so many delicious items on our buffet, we truly appeal to just about any personality, any individual and any craving. This campaign was created with our one-of-a-kind brand experience at its core and to help us break away from the ‘sea of sameness’ among competitive restaurant advertising.”
Created by The VIA Agency, the ad is a funky, tasty, vibrant celebration of the unique personalities and plates people pick at the only restaurant that can truly boast having something for everyone. Claire Cottrell directed the commercials. Cottrell, an award-winning, Los Angeles-based director and photographer, is interested in the simplicity of humanity's imperfect beauty – be it in film, food, fashion or design.

“The opportunity to interpret a strong strategy in a new way with a new look and feel, was truly exciting for us,” said Group Creative Director Teddy Stoecklein. “It freed us up a bit and allowed the insight that people can look like food as another way to express that Golden Corral is the Only One for Everyone.”
