Golden Corral announced that on Monday, September 7, it opened the doors to its newest restaurant in Bronx, N.Y., at 2375 E. Tremont Ave. The Bronx Golden Corral is the brand’s first location in New York City. This new location will result in as many as 150 additional jobs for the local community once indoor dining restrictions are lifted.
“We are excited to be a part of the Bronx community and honored to open the first Golden Corral in New York City,” says franchisee and General Manager Niroopa Harpaul. “We want our restaurant to feel like home to our guests, and we’re excited for the opportunity to serve local residents a sampling of our family favorites and a wide variety of top quality, home-style foods.”
The new Golden Corral has opened with outdoor dining and takeout, with delivery service added in the weeks ahead. Upon arrival, guests order from outdoor registers located behind plexiglass, and then sit at one of the socially distanced sanitized tables. Food will be delivered to each table using disposable packaging and utensils. Guests are required to wear masks anytime they are away from their tables and are encouraged to use one of the many available handwashing or sanitizing stations. Social distancing procedures, including capacity limits, floor markers, table spacing, plate, utensils, and drink delivery, are all in place, and rigorous cleanliness standards for guest touchpoints will be reinforced.
Managers will perform employee temperature checks before each shift, and all of the team members will wear masks and gloves while working. Once dine-in capacity restrictions are lifted, the 7,500-square-foot restaurant will seat 276 guests.
