CARMEL CHURCH—The new Golden Corral Buffet and Grill is projected to open around Nov. 1 but is already looking for experienced grill cooks, bakers, servers, meat cutters, cashiers and buffet attendants.

Golden Corral will employ 100 people and seat 240 guests, and will have a significant impact on the local economy and tax base. It is located at 23866 Rogers Clark Road, Ruther Glen VA 22546, near the Pilot Travel Center/Flying J at exit 104 off I-95.

Applicants should apply in person 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23 to Friday, Sept. 27 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28. If you are unable apply in person, apply online at

Hu Odom, the Golden Corral franchisee, said, “Our Company is excited to be in Ruther Glen as we look forward to becoming involved in the community.” The general manager of the Ruther Glen restaurant is Greg Bouldin, with over 25 years of restaurant experience, including general manager of the Petro Shopping Center, which operated the Iron Skillet–the site where the new Golden Corral is located.

Ruther Glen is the first Golden Corral in the nation with this new downsized design for small markets geared toward interstate travel and truck plazas. However, this unique design will still feature Golden Corral ‘s fresh market style food displays and exhibition-food preparation, including steaks (fresh cut every day), a flame grill, rotisserie chicken, fresh pizza, the famous “Sunrise Breakfast Buffet,” a made from scratch “Brass Bell Bakery and Dessert Café,” featuring the “Chocolate Wonderfall,” numerous children’s specials, and a greenhouse fresh salad bar.

Golden Corral is the four-time winner of Restaurant and Institutions prestigious “Choice of Chains” award, which is based on thousands of customer reviews. Golden Corral operates 500 restaurants in the United States and its continued success stems in large part to a program of customer pleasing innovation, Odom said.

Monday through Friday breakfast is served from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., lunch 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner 4 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday breakfast is served 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., and dinner from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
