A Golden Corral franchise opening in early 2017 was widely acknowledged by the residents of Dutchess County. At the time of its opening, the nearest Golden Corral was almost 90 miles away. Finding an opening in this marketplace seemed like a good idea at the time.

As many social media users soon found out, their opening appeared to be a let down with numerous complaints coming from customers. Within a few months of opening, the doors were closed with a small sign taped to the main entrance saying "closed until further notice."

I've never been to a Golden Corral and I'll admit I considered going before its early closing. The closest I've tried would be Ponderosa back in the 1980s. It was a rare location our family chose for a night out together. All you can eat buffets are easy on the wallet when there is a family of five to feed.

If Golden Corral re-opened would you give it another chance?
