What is Golden Corral?

The right place. The best people. Golden Corral, a leading chain restaurant company, is just the place for people with a focus on being the best. Opening our doors in 1973, our history is marked by innovation, growth and caring about people. From day one, we established the tradition of friendly service, great value and fresh, tasty food, operating in over 500 company and franchise restaurants in 42 states. Golden Corral® family-style restaurants specialize in the biggest and best buffet available anywhere including sirloin steaks, which are USDA inspected and grilled to order. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Golden Corral stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
