GC Cares Assistance Fund

GC Cares Assistance Fund

Golden Corral Corporation has established GC Cares, Inc., whose mission is to assist employees of Golden Corral Corporation, franchisees, and employees of franchisees who experience an emergency situation which causes a temporary financial hardship and to help them within a very short period of time.  Financial assistance is intended for those in severe financial need and who lack the necessities of life as a result of an unforeseen tragedy, natural disaster, extended illness, or catastrophic event beyond their control. The GC Cares Assistance Fund provides a resource for members of our Golden Corral family to care for company and franchise employees during times of their greatest need.

We are proud of Golden Corral’s caring spirit for others as demonstrated by the support of our team members. 

We face challenges in our businesses every day, but what makes Golden Corral so unique and incredibly special is the way we come together when circumstances are toughest.  When we work together to support one another, we make Golden Corral stronger as an organization.
