Opportunity through company program brings father and son together for Father's day

Posted: Updated:

Opportunity is what made one Beaumont man's Father day extra special this year.   

As a child, Carlos Robles was one of 10 children with parents struggling to put food on the table.     
In his early 20's Ruble came to the United States and started working as a bus boy at a restaurant. 

He would eventually fall in love with the food business open three restaurants and eventually retire. 

That was until he went through Golden Corral's Operating Partner Program which helped him become the owner of the restaurant in Beaumont. 

He has four children and says it has helped him live the American dream. 

To top it all off, his son moved to Beaumont after being apart for 12 years to work alongside his dad. 

Robles' son Leonard hopes to follow in his fathers footsteps and become a restaurant owner.
