Golden Corral eyes Salisbury

Buffalo Wild Wings is out, and Golden Corral is in.
Well, maybe.
The developer of the future Courtyard Marriott on East Innes Street at the Interstate 85 interchange has submitted a proposal to the city for a Golden Corral restaurant.
Golden Corral would replace the Buffalo Wild Wings that developers previously proposed for a parcel near the southbound on-ramp for I-85.
Jax LLC, which owns 14 Golden Corrals in North Carolina and South Carolina, submitted the request to the Salisbury Technical Review Committee, which will meet at 9 a.m. Thursday in the Seminar Room at the Plaza, 100 W. Innes St.
If approved, the proposal will go to Salisbury Planning Board and then City Council.
Mike Kelley of Winston-Salem is the developer of the hotel and surrounding area, which is bound by Arlington Street, I-85 and Innes Street and backs up to Cracker Barrel. He could not be reached for comment.
Jax President Ed Manns could not be reached for comment.
Developers always have said they will bring a restaurant with the Marriott, but which restaurant has changed, City Engineer Dan Mikkelson said.
The original proposal was for an unnamed restaurant, then Buffalo Wild Wings, and now Golden Corral.
Mikkelson said he doesnít know why the restaurant tenant has changed and has been surprised that developers revealed the names of restaurants they are courting.
ěFor our purposes, we donít need to know who it is,î Mikkelson said. ěOur standards are the same whether itís one restaurant or another.î
The restaurant site plan is going before the Technical Review Committee again because developers have purchased a small amount of additional land from N.C. Department of Transportation and have incorporated it into the proposal.
