Homeward Kitchen opens first location in Southern Pines under leadership of new VP of Operations, Jason Kornosky

By Staff Report, posted 6 months ago

Homeward Kitchen is now open for business. The new fast-casual concept from Golden Corral made its debut in Southern Pines, North Carolina. The Moore County Chamber of Commerce marked the occasion with an official ribbon cutting, during which the group announced they would be supporting Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care throughout the month of December by donating a portion of proceeds from sales to the local non-profit.

Jason Kornosky has assumed the role of VP of Operations for the business. Kornosky has played a major part in the brand’s grand opening and will continue to lead efforts related to Homeward Kitchen’s impending expansion, while developing and implementing operational standards. 

“I am honored to be part of such an amazing culture and have the opportunity not only to serve the Homeward Kitchen brand but also work with such a storied company, continuing to add to the legacy and success of Golden Corral,” Kornosky said in a press release.

Homeward Kitchen features a small dining room with dine-in, take-out and drive-thru ordering options for convenient and fast service. This is the first of many locations to come for the team.

“We are thrilled to be serving the incredible people of Southern Pines and we couldn’t have asked for a better welcome. While the doors to our first restaurant have just opened, we already have our sights set on potential additional locations and look forward to becoming an integral part of even more communities soon,” Kornosky said in a press release.

Homeward Kitchen’s menu features homestyle favorites such as Slow-Cooked Pot Roast, Fried Shrimp, Homestyle Mac and Cheese, Green Beans, and Banana Pudding. Guests will also find new temptations like the Cajun Mac & Cheese Bowl, Meatloaf Sandwich or a Fried Chicken Sandwich served in Classic, Nashville Hot, and Honey Dipped varieties.
