Golden Corral’s History

The first location of Golden Corral was opened in 1973 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, by James Maynard and William F. Carl. The original location featured seating for 175 guests and a 4,800 square foot floor plan to accommodate the extensive buffet. Focusing on the south, the chain expanded westward to Texas in the following years.

By the mid 1980’s Golden Corral was building restaurants large enough to accommodate 400 guests with an expanded menu and grill. As of 2016 there are over 500 locations. The menu has expanded over the years to provide more options for health conscious guests such as salads, seafood items and made to order items on the menu.
