I write extensively about the Golden Corral restaurant chain for NewsBreak. In recent months, most of my articles on the topic have detailed recent restaurant closures.

Now, however, has come word that a Roanoke, West Virginia location — though operating — is symbolically reopening on March 30.

Per There are 397 Golden Corral stores in the United States as of February 24, 2023. The state with the most number of Golden Corral locations in the U.S. is Texas, with 55 stores, which is about 14% of all Golden Corral stores in the U.S.

Let us explore further.

Golden Corral, 2023

The Golden Corral Wikipedia page offers a historical perspective of the perennial chain: In 1971, James Maynard and William F. Carl conceived the idea that became Golden Corral after several unsuccessful attempts to acquire a franchise with other companies. Golden Corral was incorporated in 1972 and the first Golden Corral Family Steak House opened on January 3, 1973, in Fayetville, North Carolina.

According to a report from, entitled “Roanoke Golden Corral Grand Re-Opening,” the entity’s West Virginia operation will soon be formally unveiled as an improved experience.

As excerpted from the report: The Golden Corral located at 1441 Towne Square Blvd. NW in Roanoke is hosting a grand re-opening celebration on Thursday, March 30, to unveil its reimagined interior and improved dining experience. The Roanoke Regional Chamber is hosting a special ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. to celebrate the comprehensive refresh, which included the installation of a new stone fireplace, new décor and interiors, and an enhanced buffet area.

The report directs readers to the Golden Corral Facebook page for further information.


In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, I will share them here on NewsBreak.

Thank you for reading.
