CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Golden Corral is building a new restaurant next to its existing one on U.S. 340 and will move to the new building later this year, the general manager said Wednesday.
The opening of the soon-to-be-completed Wal-Mart and the refurbishing of Charles Town Races by Penn National will generate more business for the Golden Corral, general manager John Hendricks said.
Many people going to the race track stop at the restaurant to have dinner first, he said.
"This is probably the best restaurant site in town now," Hendricks said.
The new facility, near the site of the new Wal-Mart in Charles Town Plaza, will seat 260 to 290 customers compared to the 147 diners who can be served in the present restaurant, Hendricks said.
