The typical Golden Corral customer is a Black retiree over age 65, according to data provided by analytics firm Numerator. They likely live in rural or suburban areas in the South Central and South Atlantic regions of the US, in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, or Washington DC.
Their household tends to make less than $80,000 per year, and this customer likely has a high school diploma or GED. There are some similarities with the average Texas Roadhouse Customer, who is also over 65 and lives in the suburban or rural south.
Golden Corral is famous for its extensive buffet options and extremely loyal fans. Buffets were a tricky type of business in the early days of the pandemic when few of the chain's nearly 500 locations could open for indoor dining at all and off-premise orders made up less than 3% of all business. When I visited in August, though, business was booming and the restaurant was packed.
