Tampa Bay foodies rejoice! Golden Corral, the nation’s leading all-you-can-eat buffet chain, is set to expand its presence in the region. This exciting news comes courtesy of a multi-unit franchise agreement with Britt Guyer, a seasoned Golden Corral owner with a proven track record of success.

Guyer, who already operates thriving Golden Corral locations in Winter Haven and Tampa, is excited to bring the brand’s signature value and family-friendly atmosphere to Clearwater-Largo and St. Petersburg.

“From the very beginning, my wife and I were drawn to Golden Corral’s commitment to affordability and creating memorable dining experiences for families,” Guyer shared. “We saw a unique opportunity to join a special brand and have been dedicated to its growth ever since.”

This expansion isn’t just about bringing delicious buffets to new communities. Guyer is deeply embedded in the Tampa Bay area, actively participating in local chambers of commerce, charitable initiatives, and programs like Camp Corral, which supports the children of military families. His dedication to the community and entrepreneurial spirit are key factors in his success with Golden Corral.

Proven Support for Franchisee Growth

Golden Corral’s robust franchisee support system goes beyond operations and marketing. Their commitment to franchisee success creates a strong foundation for growth. Combined with the brand’s incredible variety and unbeatable value proposition, it’s no wonder Golden Corral reigns supreme as the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat buffet chain.

“As a Golden Corral franchisee for over a decade, I’ve personally witnessed the passion and potential behind their proven business model,” said Guyer. “The incredible turnout at my Tampa restaurant last year solidified the demand for value in the area, inspiring me to open two additional locations.”

Guyer’s vision extends beyond profit margins. He aims to create lasting memories for his guests, whether they’re local residents or simply passing through the “Sunshine City.”

Investing in Success: Owning a Golden Corral Franchise

Golden Corral’s strong brand loyalty and consistent growth create a compelling opportunity for franchisees seeking to expand with a legacy brand. For FY2023, the top 20% of Golden Corral’s standard-sized restaurants (9,000 sq ft – 12,000 sq ft) boasted average gross sales of $6.4 million, a significant increase from the $5.6 million average in FY2022. Even smaller footprint restaurants within the brand have experienced a surge in sales, highlighting the overall financial strength of the Golden Corral franchise model.
