Franchisees tell Golden Corral Corporation that they enjoy the best of both worlds.
On the one hand, they are CEOs of their own businesses, generating earnings for themselves and creating wealth for their families.
On the other hand, they receive continuous support from Golden Corral that starts long before the first restaurant opens.
The Wall Street Journal noted that the life of a Golden Corral franchisee "is a blend of entrepreneur and traditional manager."
That's because franchisees have a relationship with Golden Corral that is like that of partners who share in and contribute to each other's success.
Golden Corral contributes to the success of its franchisees by offering them the company's most valuable assets: a powerful brand name, proven operating system and ongoing assistance provided through real estate, construction, equipment, operations, marketing, food and beverage, training and human resources experts in the regional and home office support centers.
