Tiffin man organizing campaign to bring Golden Corral restaurant to city




TIFFIN, OH ( News) — A Tiffin man has started a new campaign, with a stated goal of attracting a Golden Corral buffet restaurant to the city.

#BringTheCToTheT is a social media campaign started by Tiffin local Damien Hill.

Hill says his campaign is designed to encourage the corporate leaders of Golden Corral to consider opening a restaurant in Tiffin.

“At this point it’s still in the early stages,” Hill said. “But publicity is what we are going for to help further our efforts.”

Hill says he recently designed t-shirts that are now on sale in an effort to promote awareness of his campaign.

“Golden Corral to me is an event,” Hill said. “It’s the place my daughter had her first bite of non-baby food. Its wholesome family atmosphere is welcoming to all and its affordable prices make it a must stop for every family.”

“It’s got something for everyone. Being a picky eater myself, it’s a place the whole family can agree on,” Hill continued. “For those who say you can’t go home they are wrong you can always go to a Golden Corral and that’s what I want for Tiffin.”

Hill says his campaign has already caught the attention of Golden Corral. “We appreciate the work you’ve done Damien! We are sure that if you get enough attention and support, our corporate team will find more motivation to make the move,” a member of Golden Corral’s corporate team told Hill on social media.

Golden Corral, based in Raleigh, N.C., is the nation’s largest grill-buffet restaurant chain with 489 restaurants operating in 42 states. Golden Corral is famous for its variety, including USDA steaks cooked to order, smoked meats, awesome pot roast, hot yeast rolls, and desserts like homemade carrot cake and the Chocolate Wonderfall®.

Some in the community have compared Hill’s campaign to Mayor Aaron Montz’s social media campaign a few years ago to bring Chipotle to the city.

Montz started tweeting at Chipotle every day in 2015 until they agreed to open a store in the city in 2016.
