Homeward Kitchen, a new fast-casual concept from Golden Corral Corporation, will open its doors this December.

The first Homeward Kitchen will be located in Southern Pines, N.C. This flagship location will feature dine-in, takeout and drive-thru options for ordering Homeward Kitchen's “slow-cooked, served fast” family favorites.

"We’re excited to launch a concept that combines high quality, freshly prepared, classic comfort foods, with the convenience of being able to enjoy them in the restaurant, on the go, through the drive-thru, or at home,” Golden Corral Corporation President & CEO Lance Trenary says.
