Tax Break in Store to Attract 'Golden Corral' to Tinley Park

Tinley Park Village Board members are expected to approve a large property tax break for Golden Corral, according to Sun-Times reports. The break would drop property taxes from $213,000 to just $92,396 annually, over the next 10 years.

One of the leading cafeteria-style restaurants in the nation is poised to move into Tinley Park, due in part to a large tax break from the Village, according to Sun-Times Media reports.

On Jan. 23, the Tinley Park finance committee approved a tax break for Golden Corral, 6803 W. 159th Street. The break would drop the property taxes over the next 10 years from $213,000 to just $92,396 annually.

Golden Corral developer Bhavin Patel told reporters that without the tax break, he and his partners would not be able to build the 11,000-square-foot building to house the restaurant.

Golden Corral is expected to bring between 100 to 120 full- and parttime jobs to the village, according to the report.

The village board is expected to vote on the tax break at its Feb. 5 meeting.

Nothing wrong with a buffet. Golden Corral, is not owned by the cooperation that owns Old County Buffet. It sounds like all the people who commented never ate at one, so let me tell you.......Golden Corral is better period. Fresh food veggies and fruit. friendly staff, you can see the cooks making the food. This place will shut down Old County, Orland Buffet and that new all you can eat Asian restaurant next to the Home Depot. There will be lines to get in. As for Carmen's beef, coupons would have been an idea. Also it's hard to compete with, Nicky's and Mickeys both on Oak Park Ave.

The real question should be, will the business entity be a good fit for meeting the needs of the community? And how will Golden Corral do this? Another buffet? This is meeting the needs of the community how? Another 2* fast food place? Please explain your expertise on this topic and why you feel this is so good! Although I agree with you on OF needing to pay attention!

There are people who want good wholesome food at a decent price point. Golden Corral would be perfect. Old Country Buffet's time has passed.

Now that a new building is Finished, grand opening this week, meeting the needs of a community means people patronizing a business several times per year!!! The hot dog stand at the corner of 159th & Harlem is an example of meeting the needs of a community!
