HomeTown Buffet is part of Ovation Brands, which is a subsidiary of Food Management Partners, Inc. and is the operator of a number of American national buffet chain restaurants. It was founded by Roe Hatlen and C. Dennis Scott on October 19, 1983, along with Dermot Rowland and Doron Jensen. The latter two left the company in 1986 to start Homestyle Buffet in Florida.
HomeTown Buffet started off as Old Country Buffet in the 1980s. At its height, there were more than 350 Old Country Buffet locations throughout the midwest. Anthony Wedo, the CEO of Old Country Buffet’s parent company, Buffets Inc, appeared the CBS series Undercover Boss in 2013 in an effort to reinvigorate the brand after it fell on hard times. Unfortunately, the national spotlight did little to quell their issues, and the franchise continued to close up shops.
Today, there are only a total of 17 Old Country Buffet restaurants left in the United States. Many of the locations have been rebranded as HomeTown Buffet.
