The announcement that company-owned restaurants were suspending operations was shared during a virtual town hall meeting with company leaders, coworkers and franchise owners. "It is truly an emotional and challenging time for our country," Golden Corral CEO Lance Trenary said during the meeting. "The realities of the current situation have forced us to make difficult decisions. We know these decisions are impacting the team members who we work shoulder to shoulder with every day." The company has furloughed 2,290 team members made up of restaurant coworkers, managers, field support and company support center employees.
Trenary indicated that the company would assist restaurant coworkers with food for their families and provide guidance as they seek unemployment, adding, "We are committed to supporting our friends, colleagues and coworkers during this difficult transition."
