That is when a ribbon-cutting will be held at 6 p.m. at his 15 Old Gick Road location. Patel has provided meeting space there for the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 158 for the past decade, but the ceremony will mark the redecoration and dedication of an enclosed room within the restaurant that emphasizes it as a location dedicated to the service of veterans.
At the same event, results of the annual fundraising campaign headed by Patel's trio of restaurants that contributes about $10,000 a year to efforts to aid local veterans will be announced. Veterans assistance is part of the Golden Corral public service mantra.
His other Golden Corral locations are at 1901 Central Avenue, Colonie, and 75 Quaker Road, Queensbury. As a group, they constitute three of the chain's four New York State venues. The other is in Rochester. The first Golden Corral opened in 1973 in Fayetteville, NC. It now has 485 locations in 40 states.
