Golden Corral will be getting a new look and feel starting next year.
The privately held Golden Corral, which has nearly 500 restaurants, saw revenue fall 2.6 percent last year.
Buffet restaurants are suffering because their core customer tends to be a lower-income diner who eats out less often
The new building design seeks to boost Golden Corral’s curb appeal. The new exterior features stacked stone towers, oversized windows, red awnings and wood accents.
The new buffet will feature cooking theaters which will include a carvery, smoke house and cake decorating area.
