Golden Corral Ribs

Sales and unit counts are down overall in the family casual category--otherwise known as buffets or cafeterias. Sales declined by 8.7% to $3.5 billion and units by 12.5% to 1,214. Luby's and Sizzler each achieved sales gains of about 1%, despite closing stores; that's where the positive news ends.
