KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Service Management Group (SMG), an enterprise customer and employee experience management partner to more than 500 brands, has announced a new customer experience partnership with Golden Corral. America’s largest buffet and grill restaurant brand chose SMG for its dedicated professional services, restaurant industry expertise and robust technology platform.

With something for everyone, Golden Corral is a place where guests can come together to eat as they please.
“As our brand builds upon our comeback, and creates the strategic building blocks of our future growth, it will be critical to maintain a pulse on how our guests feel about their Golden Corral dine-in and off-premise experiences,” said Golden Corral Chief Marketing Officer Skip Hanke. “SMG’s unique Software with a Service (SwaS) model gives us access to an enterprise experience management platform and a dedicated professional services team that will help us uncover insights faster and make data-driven decisions that increase guest traffic, loyalty and franchisee profitability.”
