Golden Corral’s Fowler new ProStart fundraising chair


Ted Fowler, president and CEO of Golden Corral, the Raleigh, N.C.-based grill-buffet chain, has been appointed 2012 chair of the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation's ProStart Initiative Cabinet.

Fowler, who assumed the chairmanship from Carlton Curtis, vice president of industry relations for the Atlanta-based Coca-Cola Co., will be tasked with raising funds to benefit ProStart, the NRAEF's two-year program that teaches high-school students the management skills and culinary techniques needed to forward their careers in the restaurant industry. As the 2011 chair, Curtis achieved great success raising unprecedented funds to grow and enhance the program at the national and state level, the foundation said.

Fowler, a member of the NRAEF's Board of Trustees since 2002, said he is excited to raise the funds needed to grow ProStart's reach and accessibility across the country.

"I've seen the impact ProStart has in preparing students to enter the workforce," Fowler said. "I have no doubt that other members of the industry will recognize this [program's] value and help us reach our $3 million fundraising goal this year."
