Golden Corral closes in Boone
The Golden Corral in Boone closed its doors Sunday for financial reasons, according to franchise owner Dave Gronewoller.
"(The costs of) business became too high, and it was ultimately a financial decision," Gronewoller said.
Gronewoller is the president of GC Partners Inc., a Winston-Salem-based company that owns and operates several Golden Corral locations across the Carolinas and Florida.
GC Partners Inc. is currently looking to sell or lease the now vacant property and is in the process of talking to a few interested businesses, Gronewoller said.
"We have been talking to both restaurant and retail businesses who are interested in the property," he said.
The restaurant's 46 employees were notified of the decision to close the business on Monday.
"We are doing everything we can to get every employee taken care of and employed again," Gronewoller said.
