Our History

When the first Golden Corral© restaurant opened in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 1973, Golden Corral Corporation took a confident first step in the restaurant business, beginning a tradition of offering guests real, wholesome foods in a family-friendly atmosphere and at a great value. Nearly 50 years later, Golden Corral© is honored to be called America’s #1 buffet and grill.

Giving Back

Service to others is a hallmark of the Golden Corral© brand. That includes service to our guests, U.S. military active duty members, veterans, and their families, and our own employees. We do this through our annual Military Appreciation Night for U.S. military members, Camp Corral to support military children, GC Cares for our own employees who have experienced unforeseen emergencies, and many more national and local not-for-profits.
