The first Golden Corral was opened by the founders James Maynard and William F. Carl in Fayetteville, North Carolina in 1973. Their original goal was to create a buffet that would provide people with healthy food that they were accustomed to eating and provide them with the opportunity to try foods they weren’t used to. Having started with humble beginnings in North Carolina, Golden Corral has grown into an international restaurant chain that is present in 43 different states across the United States.
How much does Golden Corral cost? The price of a complete breakfast at the Golden Corral is $8.69. Golden Corral’s lunch buffet costs $9.95 for adults. On any given day of the week, dinner begins at 4 p.m. The overall cost will be $11.99, plus the additional charges for beverages ($2.19).
