GOLDEN CORRAL Franchise Owner Sherrance Henderson Letter to U.S. Senate

Golden Corral franchisee Sherrance Henderson, the disabled single mom who lost more than $3M when her Pughkeepsie, NY franchise was terminated after just 51 days, is not going away quietly.  Here’s the letter she sent today to the U.S. Senate committee on Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs.

(UnhappyFranchisee.Com)  Sherrance Henderson claims to have been the only woman-of-color franchisee in the 600-store Golden Corral chain.

Sherrance HendersonShe also has the distinction of having the shortest operating history in the chain’s history:  Golden Corral terminated her franchise agreement and ordered he restaurant closed only 51 days after it opened.

With no restaurant revenue with which to repay her SBA loan of $3.7M, TD Bank enacted default proceedings and foreclosed on Sherrance Henderson’s $1.7M home (which they resold for less than $1M).

It appears that the American Taxpayer may be on the hook for as much as $2.8M or more for the guarantee made to TD Bank through the SBA loan program, as well as the cost of food stamps, Medicaid and other social services the once-millionairess Henderson and her two autistic children are now eligible for.

So it appears that Golden Corral Systems, Inc., TD Bank, and the Golden-boy franchisee Niral Patel (who took apparently took ownership of the Poughkeepsie franchise location without paying Henderson a cent) made out like, say, bandits leaving a disabled mother destitute and the American Taxpayer potentially on the hook for millions.

Well, Golden Corral Systems,

Golden Corral CEO Lance Trenary, Senior VP of Franchising Irwin Roberts, VP Richard Chase, Niral Patel, and Brian Misenheimer (formerly with TD Bank, now VP of Cooperative Bank) haven’t gotten away scot-free.

Sherrance Henderson does not appear to be someone who is going away quietly.

Here’s the Sherrance Henderson / Golden Corral letter sent today to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.

Re: RECO+ ME TOO+ Racism+ Unethical Business Practices= TD Bank and Golden Corral lawsuit filed by African American Female..$350 Million Dollars

Dear Committee on Banking and Urban Affairs:

Please give ear to my plead. I am desperate need of your assistance. I have been taken advantage, illegally mistreated by both TD(TD) Bank and Golden Corral(GC). I was simply set-up by these two originations. I have been set-up so Golden Corral and TD Bank could robed me easily. Now the American Tax Payer will foot the bill. My Small Business Administration Protected loan was “ONLY” for the benefit of both TD and GC. However, I paid the premium of $10,000 during my loan application process. GC order me to use ONLY TD for my business loan and GC stated that I MUST apply for a SBA loan product. GC and TD furthermore supplied with numbers for my business plan, loan application, and proforma so the “SBA” loan would be a sure shot. I thought they were helping me. That was furthest away from the truth. They..GC and TD had a wicket plan to steal from me. To take ever dime so I could not fight but I would simply die and be buried alive with my two children.

TD has a long of participating in many different win-falls types of illegal banking practices. Like the 2nd largest Ponzi scheme in the World, TD was the money launderer. TD concealed the origins and protected Stanford Finical. Over a billion dollars went though complex sequences to foster a pathway for Stanford Finical to steal money. No other bank accepted Stanford finical, yet TD did. TD has countless lawsuits from stealing peenies from a coin star counting machine to charging high interest rates to up selling banking products unbeknownst to TD’s customers. It just shows that TD will steal pennies to billions. Not amount is too small to “steal.” I am not the only one and I am not the first but yet TD keeps its banking license. GC has been practicing Racketeering for many years. Within the franchisee food business they (other food franchises) call it “churning.” Its simply bring in an unexperienced buyer of wealth, making them do all the hard leg -work of building a store, acquiring a team of workers, and opening a business. Then the franchisor “takes” the business. They set it up to make it seem like the business owner does not know how to run the franchise. The franchisor sends in “fake” customers, know as secret shoppers. These shoppers then places false reports on leading consumer review websites like “Yelp.” These shoppers will do anything that has been requested. They will complain to managers at the store, support false complaints with the franchisor, cause fights at the location. Whatever it takes to destroy the integrity of the store and its management.

This is how the franchisor “devalues” the store and thus starts growing roots to take over the store for pennies on the dollar. This is a just an example. Then the franchise has another owner of “another” location to become involved with the “unexperienced” franchisee to be set up for a take over. The franchisees uses a group approach. This is what they did to me, Sherrance Henderson they ONLY women of color franchisee owner out of 600 plus stores.

Please read the below. Please help. Please do not ignore. Me and my family’s life depends on your help and the American Tax payer is depending on your help as well.

I await your reply. Please feel free to call me directly at 347-421-4451.

Disabled Single Mom Seeks Help Fighting Injustice

It is a David v Goliath story of the modern age.  A disabled single mother is taking on two major corporations, in an effort to put right the wrongs they inflicted on her.  Sherrance Henderson, a former Miss America, and Miss USA beauty pageant contestant is speaking out about the corruption within two businesses, which has seen her loose over two million dollars.

Ms Henderson has named TD Bank, and Golden Corral as the companies, whose action has lead to herself and her children relying on food banks and homeless.  Were it not for Ms.Hendersons mother, they would be out on the street – a far cry from the two million dollar home they resided in before the ill-fated involvement with the aforementioned companies.

What has become a desperate and unjust situation began when Ms Henderson went into business with Golden Corral, by purchasing a license to open a franchise in the Newark, NJ area.  Immediately after receiving the license money from Ms.Henderson, Golden Corral began backtracking, changing the terms of the deal, and stating that Ms.Henderson could no longer open in Newark area.

She was instead, forced to open her franchise in the less desirable and less profitable area of Poughkeepsie.  During the following months, Ms.Henderson was subjected to sexual harassment and intimidation by a corporate executive at Golden Corral.  As a result, she was left feeling trapped, both in an area, she had not wished to open a business in, and within a company in which she was being sexually and emotionally exploited.  The business subsequently closed after just 51 days, which is little surprise given the circumstances surrounding the opening.

It was following the closure of the business, that Ms.Henderson faced TD Bank in court, they forced the sale of Ms.Hendersons home by lying that Golden Corral didnt have a buyer for the franchise, however, shortly after the judgment forcing the sale, Golden Corral emerged with a buyer.

It is with great sadness that Ms.Henderson seeks assistance to get her day in court.  It is vital that the sexual exploitation, harassment, and mis-truths  surrounding this case are exposed.  It is only with your help that this will be a possibility, as Ms.Henderson has been left destitute by the corruption of the companies involved.  If you would like to help with please visit the go fund me page at

  • This woman clearly should not of been sold a franchise, but I feel like you could of found a better cause to champion then this one Sean.

    I mean was that letter and Gofund me actually her writing or was there a bunch of mistakes in transcribing it to the blog?

    Look, I am no fan of predatory franchises, and do believe there is an issue with franchiser over reach, and the way courts are interrupting parts of the relationship, but in this womans case we have a consumer minded indvidual with:

    -no experience
    -clear lack of sophistication
    -disabled with disabled kids
    -likely no real due dilligence conducted

    Who attempted a very complicated business transaction and now that it blew up in her face its racism and sexual exploitation, not a fool and her money being parted

    You know part of me feels like Golden corral sold it to her in the first place because they were leary of her making the same accusations if she was denied a franchise even though she had the money and credit (though clearly lacked experience and intellect)..Its because Im a black woman, or disabled, autistic kids, or whatever. I bet if she was denied a franchise the letter to the senate would be saying that golden corral was denying a financially qualified African American woman with a disability the opportunity to own a golden corral

    I do feel bad for her and her kids, but the facts are here’s a women with zero business experience, no food service experience, no finance experience, no real estate experience, no formal education in any of the above, who recieved and now blew a multi million dollar settlement on a high risk highly complex restaurant franchise and real estate development project, paid for with a poorly negotiated credit facility, and now is playing the race/gender/disability card

    I think this site draws attention to some important issues, but this one I have to say I’m not extremely supportive of.

  • Her letter is reprinted verbatim, as it was provided to me. The mispellings and typos appear in the original.

    E, I think there is a very interesting story here and its not as simple as me “championing” her cause. If there’s a pure potential victim here, I’d suggest it’s the American Taxpayer.

    Golden Corral & TD Bank sold and financed an ill-advised multi-million dollar venture to a woman who clearly did not have either the experience nor financial resources to make it work.

    The franchisee made an irresponsible and reckless decision, in my opinion, that jeopardized the financial security of her children.

    GC & TD Bank terminated her after 51 days and turned it over to another franchisee.

    Is it right that the American Taxpayer is on the hook to pay back TD Bank for $2.7M for a loan they should have known would default?

    Would TD Bank have loaned a disabled woman with no restaurant experience $3M+ to open a complex restaurant with 150 employees if they didn’t know that the American Taxpayer (via the SBA) would pay them when she failed… with no questions asked?

    Should Golden Corral have the sole authority to accept, train & terminate a franchisee – without penalty – when doing so could cost you and I $2.7 million?

  • Sean,

    We agree on most of the main points, IE she should not of beem given a franchise and that she was reckless and irresponsible.

    On SBA loans I have mixed feelings. I actually used an SBA loan to finance my 2nd unit (I own a chain of fitness centers), as I did not have enough operating history to satisfy a bank for a conventional credit facility. I have since abandoned SBA loans, as the cost of capital is too high for me at this point, however, with a 10 year ammortization and cash flow projection vs classic banking metrics being the basis for underwriting, alot of viable people are able to get funding with low monthly debt service levels due to the extended ammortization, who would of not been deemed credit worthy by normal loan channels for numerous reasons or whose monthly loan payments on a 5 year note would of been too high for the model to tolerate. In those cases, its a great thing, and I myself was able to jump start my company with the program.

    The other side of the coin is the one your talking about, which is when banks know that there is a 75% (or whatever the number is now) government guarantee on the principal, then why not make the loan.

    I will say SBA loans are collateralized by a combination of business assets, and if the value there doesn’t satisfy the underwriter then personal assets come into the picture. In this case, I can almost assure you given the loan amount that her house and personal assets collateralized the loan, so the bank was likely able to recover most of the loan from her personal guarantee, but your point still has some validity regarding the wider SBA loan program.

    As far as Golden Corral is concerned, and her 51 day termination, its definetley aggressive, but given the tone and intellectual level of her writing, they may well of realized she was a disaster and beyond help, and they needed to remove her from the system.

    Again Sean I’ve commented here off and on for years, been a long time reader, and like you find franchise agreements impossible to swallow without significant addendums, and I also feel like the proliferation of half baked concepts whose aim is to sell a few dozen units, and squeeze the operators for every nickle they can until the whole thing implodes crosses the line to fraud (though I admit its a tricky legal situation), so we have a good amount of common ground.

    In this case the blatant disregard for responsible entrepreneurship by this woman, and her knee jerk race card reaction just hit a button with me.

  • E – I think this one is a difficult situation. On one hand the negative publicity when she was open smells like shady behavior and I’d be curious to know who funded that. On the other, many of your other points are valid, so I can’t dismiss them. In any event, GC could have denied her a franchise on her lack of prior experience. GC also could have attempted to derail this train wreck ahead of time instead of waiting until after they were open. Would have prevented A LOT of headache.

  • One of the lessons here is the high price a seemingly legitimate franchisor pays for not thoroughly vetting and having a disciplined approach to awarding franchises. While this comment will likely put me on Ms. Henderson’s enemy list, there are other issues Golden Corral either didn’t bother considering or chose to ignore.

    1) Lack of restaurant experience: Golden Corral states that its franchisee ownership criteria includes “An individual or at least one group member with three years full-service restaurant ownership or management experience.” Sherrance Henderson states she gave Atlanta restaurateur Darren “Chip” Joyner 5% of the company and GC required him to attend some meetings. Seems like he had no authority or involvement and was for show only.

    2) Questionable money management skills: According to a 2006 insurance newsletter, Ms. Henderson won a $5.4M medical malpractice suit. While her portion was substantial, her spending habits seem excessive. She had a $1.7M home in a country club community, paid $130,000 for a Pearlmaster Rolex watch, wore a 7 carat tennis bracelet and had three cars including a Range Rover, a new Tahoe and a $110,000 Porsche. The bankruptcy judge admonished her lavish lifestyle and for unknown reasons her bankruptcy was dismissed.

    3) Sherrance Henderson has a prior history of filing pro se discrimination lawsuits against companies, including Henderson v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Georgia Northern District Court 12/03/2009 and HENDERSON v. ROXANE LABORATORIES New Jersey District Court 01/12/2000 While her suit against Golden Corral and TD Bank allege discrimination, there does not seem to be concrete proof that I saw.

    My reading of the situation is that Golden Corral & TD Bank created a self-induced PR nightmare by selling and financing a multi-million dollar investment to an African American disabled single mother with a history of using the court system and an unrelenting determination to have her story heard.

    My question is: How is it that a franchisee, a franchisor and a bank were each allowed to make irresponsible and detrimental decisions that put the American Taxpayer on the hook for $2.7M?

    Does the SBA not exercise any oversight to protect our tax dollars from the irresponsible decisions of franchisees, franchisors and banks?

    There are franchise companies with 100% failure rates granted taxpayer guaranteed loans and outright scams with fraudulent FDDs listed on the Franchise Registry. How about the SBA eliminates loan guarantees to obviously doomed deals and make that money available to more sound business ventures?

  • Q: How is it that a franchisee, a franchisor and a bank were each allowed to make irresponsible and detrimental decisions that put the American Taxpayer on the hook for $2.7M?

    A: Public Risk, Privatized Profit.

  • Have we found an issue that both Democrats & Republicans can get behind?

  • Just in case there is any confusion, SBA loans are underwritten solely on projected cash flow and collateral, with some basic personal credit minimums, as opposed to conventional debt where credit, cash flow, liquidity, character, etc are a big part of the banking process.

    Sean your second comment shed some additional light here, and honestly honed my view of this women (not a good view by the way, she seems to be a solid example of what I dislike most in people)

    I have a strong feeling my statement regarding her using the threat of a discrimination lawsuit if denied a franchise may be the right one. GC still had an obligation to defend there brand and deny her, but I can see a situation where they end up saying…ok well shes got the money…is making discrimination lawsuit threats…has done it before…has an experienced partner…alright we’ll give her the franchise but lets keep a tight lid on her cause this is likely to go bad…

    And then you have a situation where she likely pissed off GC so bad by her behavior and attitude that they brought the franchise agreement hammer (which she likely did nothing to negotiate out any of the teeth) down ASAP, and figured she was going to sue/try to make noise either way so we may as well get the benefit of her money/adding a unit..

    Sound plausible?

  • Having personal experience with this woman, I have no sympathy. In fact, I would say it is the hand of God correcting her.

    I wouldn’t doubt for a second, that she threatened legal action if GC didn’t grant her a franchise license. She is sue happy. Research a bit more and find where she lists herself as Caucasian but conveniently flips back to being African American when it suits her victimization.

    Indeed, a fool and her money are soon parted. Why on earth would you insist on buying into an organization against their research and success guideline requirements? Why on earth would you give 5% of your business, entire life away above the needs of your whole family and cry poor mouth when your cheat scheme fails? Owning 5% equity isn’t enough to cause another to be vested with full interest of daily operations.

    Again, I have personal experience with this woman. I have no doubt that her behavior was more troublesome that any operational flaws. Her soul has been sold.

  • The company should never have approved her, threat or no threat. Even if she is a bully the bank should have known better and had multiple opportunities to deny her applications and request. I agree with the conclusion that American taxpayers should be outraged As an American taxpayer, I am outraged. You wonder why so many are robbed of life savings etc. Seniors, disabled, others. I don’t care if she can’t read, write, or count this is ridiculous. Black brown white yellow green it’s still ridiculous.

  • Harlan Bedford

    A few years ago right before Sherrance Henderson opened her GC restaurant she stated on her Facebook page to friends that she was scared and worried she would be unable to meet her costly monetary monthly overhead requirements in order to just keep the doors open. I believe she stated it was in the range of $200,000 per month.

    Sherrance Henderson is actually a graduate of John Hopkins University where she received her masters degree in BUSINESS!!! LOL How sheEVER managed graduating is beyond belief.

    She is also an author of black themed genre novels. Her writing is atrocious. So no surprise reading her terribly written letters concerning her present situation.

    She is known for being a lawsuit junkie. She ALWAYS cries racism.

    She is notoriously full of crap. She is a known self promoter. If you see anything positive written about her online bet she wrote it herself. Trust me on this.

    She squandered her lawsuit money quickly. She has always looked down on others with less than her. I feel badly for her kids only. She is not a nice person AT ALL.

    She manipulated her way thru Howard University and again at John Hopkins. She has always thought she is better than others. Has always been a snob and will throw ANYONE under the bus to get what she wants. She has finally received her just desserts.

    I have zero sympathy for this creep. Sherrance, I hear McDonald’s is hiring, go get a job!

  • Sumner Mitchell

    Sherrance Henderson lists Milton Dewar as an associate in her lawsuit document. Milton Dewar is her husband. He is also listed as a financial fraudster in relation to a company run by him called Milton Dewar Asset Management. He claims to be an “award winning” film maker. I watched one of his so called “movies” starring Sherrance Henderson, titled Hi Hater! The movie is about 10 minutes long. It is the stupidest and most non creative piece of junk ever produced. Sherrance and Milton are a match made in hell. Two shameless self promoters who put on airs as if they are successful people.
    Sherrance Hendeeson squandered her lawsuit windfall of $5.4 million dollars quickly. She paraded herself around Duluth, Georgia like she was from some rich and successful background.
    She got into a franchise buying situation she had NO BUSINESS BEING IN. It is her own fault due to her inflated ego. Now she needs a scapegoat in order to deflect the blame appropriately attributed to SOLELY HERSELF.

  • Actually, Sumner Mitchell, the movie Hi Hater! is over 1 hour long. The 2012 film is so excruciatingly bizarre and unfunny that you likely won’t even know it’s supposed to be a comedy unless you see it called a mockumentary somewhere.

    The YouTube comments are closed just like they are on Milton Dewar’s other obviously self-funded and produced vanity projects like the pretentious Sunshine Has Rain.

    Sherrance Henderson is credited as Hi Hater! Executive Producer and actor portraying “Cat Litter Random Woman.”

    Sherrance Henderson appears at 3:13 to deliver a central message that perhaps only 2 people out of the earth’s 6 billion plus population (Henderson & Dewar) find amusing: that hate is transmitted through cat litter.

    I wonder how much of the $5.4M settlement was wasted on self-indulgent, unviewable and unreadable vanity projects before Golden Corral drained the rest.

  • The U.S. District Court, Southern District of NY has ordered Sherrance Henderson to amend her complaint to conform to court requirements, including reducing her 239 complaint to 20 pages or less.

    Southern District of NY is a busy place, investigating the likes of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump & Sherrance Henderson’s claims against Golden Corral.

    FYI, in her suit against Golden Corral, T.D. Bank, etc. Sherrance Henderson is seeking an award of $350,000,000.

    In her malpractice suit, she rejected her attorney’s advice to settle at $2M and ended up winning $5.4M.

  • Margie Scott

    Sumner Mitchell, I don’t think Henderson squandered her money fast at all. I think she got her lawsuit windfall money way back in the early 2000’s or something like that. It kinda seems like she had a long run before her Golden Corral problems though, IMO. The entire situation is terrible. Also, Milton the film guy is not her husband, and the Milton that ran that fraudulent financial asset company you mentioned, is a totally different individual with the same name. I researched it.

  • Gladys Lindsay

    For one thing, She Should have been trained by the Company with another one of their Golden C. R. FOR ONE Month before going into her Golden C. R. She Should Sued them for a lack of Training & Supervion for a New Owner. It seems like a sat up to fail with Someone Waiting to take Over. MCDONALD COULD HAVE Done better .

  • I feel bad for her kids. I keep thinking of the conversation Sherrance Henderson will have one day.

    “Mommy did we really have $5 million? Where did it go?”

    “Yes, dear. Mommy bought a rolex and a porsche and a $1.7M house and some YouTube videos and built a restaurant she didn’t know how to run. But the bad men didn’t give her a month of training so it’s all gone.”

    “Mommy, couldn’t you have bought a timex and a toyota camry and a $400,000 house and not spent money on YouTube videos or a restaurant you didn’t know how to run?”

    “Timex? Toyota? Stop that talk! When I get my $350,000,000 settlement I’ll invest in a private island and open a unicorn farm. Now hush up and eat your government cheese!”

  • Richard Jeffries

    Margie Scott, Milton most definitely is her husband. Perhaps they recently dissolved the marriage. Milton is the father to her son. Milton is also the financial schemer mentioned earlier. Further investigation has revealed failed businesses run in her family. Her mother is another foolish businesswoman. She lost a Brooklyn, New York health food store years ago. She also lost a huge home in now trendy Clinton Hill Brooklyn due to taking out a hard money loan to apparently keep her flailing business afloat. However, her mother never read the fine print of said loan stating that lender was permitted to recall loan in full at any time period and borrower must pay in full within 30 days. Her mother’s house was used as collateral.
    I feel it is a plausible assumption that the lender saw a sucker in their midst and intended all along to take house from her.
    A sad story but it was her own fault. Sherrance Henderson should have learned a life lesson from her mother’s experience. This woman operates off of pure inflated ego. She thinks she is spectacular and therefore able to do grandiose things she definitely has no business doing.
    The woman is a creep. She never once paid any Golden Corral workers. Instead she supplied them with fake useless checks. She is all for herself and the image she created. Now it has all crumbled.

  • I tried to warn GC before they issued her 5 store license. She’s a liar and a schemer. She told everyone she had to lie about her marital status to get the license. She has paid her son’s father for appearances. They both are schemers. She wears a wedding ring for business transactions.

    Serrance has hurt a lot of people and karma is having its way with her. I sent several anonymous letters to GC warning them. She is a vicious demon walking and does not hesitate to use her disability card. She has caused so many to lose their jobs through false accusations. She is about to have her day. She is into witchcraft and has squandered thousands of dollars on a man to help her due harm to others. It’s all coming back on her now. She’s not a good friend. She’s a horrible person. Her children are severely autistic and she would leave them with nannies to do meetups with guys she met online. Her children cannot even speak. She has no shame.

    Sherranceused to pay expensive makeup artists to do photo shoots and post pictures bragging about her lavish lifestyle. She is also inconsistent with her stories. First it’s 50 million lawsuit, then 15 then 7. She’s a habitual liar. Her only care was living frivolous taking trips all the time. Her disability could not keep her still. Check her frequent flyer miles. She was always leaving her kids behind missing flights rescheduling at the last minute always first class. She was always boasting about it. Every conversation with her was all about her. She always talked about how much money she was worth. Sherrance is such a sad human being. I’m not surprised about this lawsuit. It’s not the first it won’t be the last.

  • Barry Goldwater

    Sherrance Henderson is now attempting to become a preacher and Christian self-help motivational speaker. She is on to her next “hustle”. Look her up on Youtube and watch her ridiculous and maniacal videos. I actually am starting to feel a little sorry for her. She is without a shred of doubt mentally ill. This is a disturbed woman. Just listen to her ramblings. It is pathetic to watch and listen to. She truly thinks she is professing some great knowledge. She sounds like a complete idiot and lunatic.
    She actually says in one video while crying that she has no money to “entertain”!!!!
    Boo hoo! The poor bougie baby!!!!
    She is setting up her next con game. She rambles about Golden Corral and TD Bank being sexist and racist toward her. Not once does she state how. She is claiming to be fasting for 40 days no eating. Well it is obviously taking a toll on her brain. She goes on and on about losing her life savings to TD Bank and GC. It was money from a lawsuit! She makes no mention of all her frivolous purchases of ridiculously expensive cars, jewels, etc.
    She paints herself as such a victim. It is getting really old!

  • Gary Struthers

    Watch the above Youtube video of Sherrance Henderson and tell me if you find this LOON credible?
    My God, this is one very bizarre woman to put it mildly. She keeps focusing on her implant breasts while attempting to have us believe she is some sort of Christian prophet or something. Watch her facial expressions and eyes closely. It’s like she is in two different worlds at once. In one of her three posted videos she rambles incessantly about God etc. She actually states that WE owe GOD more than GOD owes us!!! I do not know of ANY religion or respected theologian that would actually claim GOD owes man(his creation) ANYTHING!!! I believe it is blasphemous to state such a thing. GOD owes nobody or no thing a single shred of anything. Man is eternally indebted to GOD is what every single religion I am familiar with believes.
    Ms. Henderson just makes it up as she goes. And what is the deal with all her ranting of “the UPSIDE…Downside…Eastside…etc”???
    I did some checking on her and she grossly exaggerates many of her claims. Online she touts herself as a bestselling author. You can not purchase any of her horrifically written novels in ANY bookstores. I watched her “motion picture” Sunshine Had Rain” and I swore it was a spoof. But I was wrong, she was dead serious about producing that heap of trash. It was painful to watch.

  • I know it’s tempting to lash out at a woman as arrogant, self-centered and abrasive as Sherrance Henderson, but Barry & Gary are correct. The woman in these videos is mentally ill and likely in the midst of some kind of mental breakdown.

    I’m not a doctor so this is just a layman’s observation. She seems like a classic narcissist. Toward the end of the one on the right she pleads with people to watch her, follow her, listen to her. She is right that people may have kissed her ass while she was blowing her millions, but now she is broke and a mess and clearly unhinged and no way is she going to be getting the attention she craves.

    Sherrance, I hope you get some professional help. Check yourself into a facility and get a psychological evaluation and a treatment plan. You got lucky and got a settlement you didn’t deserve (it deemed you unemployable, right?) and believe me, you are not going to see a dime from these ludicrous lawsuits. Get some professional help, take your meds, and get a job to support your kids with a normal, frugal lifestyle.

    And listen to your mom about the mucus. Best of luck to you…

  • I’m pretty sure that half of the comments here are posted by Sherrance. Particularly the one directing readers to view youtube.

  • She doesn’t believe in organized religion. At all.

    I have been following the Sherrance Henderson Golden Corral matter and what my research has uncovered is astounding. Both Sherrance Henderson and her mother Geraldine Poteat are well known for filing frivolous pro se lawsuits. They never win. In fact, they are often tripped up by their obvious lies. These are two very dishonest and vindictive women. They have zero credibility. It is a shame that there are two innocent children caught up in the middle of the messy life Sherrance Henderson has made for herself.
    Here we have a woman who claimed under oath to be so disabled that she is unemployable but then opens a huge restaurant franchise. Now that that has failed miserably by her own ineptitude she is once again disabled and unemployable. Is she serious? She actually found a lawyer to represent her now? The lawyer must be bottom of the barrel and very stupid.
    Ms. Henderson needs to go get a job, ANY JOB and support her children. This woman got extremely lucky when awarded $5.4 million. She will NEVER recoup all that lost money via a new lawsuit. She is delusional if she thinks she will.
    I have no sympathy for this obvious crook. I recently viewed her on Youtube. She is not only not credible but also a severely disturbed woman. If anyone close to her actually loves her they will convince her to sign herself into a psychiatric hospital. This is not a normal person. This is a woman who we will be reading about in a horrible news story one day having committed some atrocious act if she is not given psychiatric help immediately.
    The woman is unhinged

    I see I have someone that doesn’t like me very well that possibly has been paid to write such a horrible article or been awhile to express a very horrible and untrue bit of information. Firstly I have a right as any American person to invest in a business. Was I the physical worker at Golden Corral being an incomplete paraplegic or would you like to say that that is a falsehood as well?

    I have a right as a person with or without education to legally fight my opponents if I feel that I have been wronged. It is not for you and I’m unsure who “YOU” are to try to tarnish my name to make a false assumption of me. I’m certain Golden Corral and TD Bank have their internet trolls and their other influences to tarnish my name. The only way that it’s going to have an audience is in court.

    I am sorry if you believe that any franchisor has the right to break their own FDD … Otherwise known as their rules of engagement with the franchisee. Anyone with a little common sense can know that the author of this has a motive. The motive is not to merely express information for the public but is to tarnish and devalue me so I have a very poor image, stimulate the green eye of envy of people who never had The money that I had and to reduce the sympathy of a disabled African American female mom of two disabled children.

    Yes your opinion has been paid for.

    You hide behind the walls of the internet to do your dirty deed. Sorry it doesn’t stop me from suing Golden Corral and TD Bank. It doesn’t stop me from suing their franchisee and any of the other RECO partners. It also doesn’t change my legal team and make them run away because again “who are you” and what is your “education- legal training” what is your affiliation? Whatever you are you’re the “devil” and the devil is always a liar!. You see I’m ready to fight and I know how to pray. I’m not moved and I will not change my stance.

    Thanks for showing people how someone can be paid to be very mean and to be a coward!

  • Well folks apparently Miss Henderson has spoken once again…
    I highly doubt GC or TD Bank is in the least bit worried about this woman’s accusations. Her past and present actions speak volumes. She claims people are spreading lies about her on here. I have taken the time to substantiate the validity of the statements made about her here. She is like The Boy Who Cried Wolf… lost all chance of any credibility. Besides, the facts show she did this disaster to herself. SHE dropped the ball BIG TIME. Now she needs to deflect blame. Typical narcissistic behavior.
    Read her once again incredibly poorly written and executed rebuttal comments here. Atrocious ramblings of a desperado. Miss Henderson, remember this- whenever you write something online such as Facebook, text messaging etc. there is ALWAYS a “footprint” left behind EVEN WHEN YOU DELETED OLD POSTS ETC. Racist comments you have made are still lingering… comments that are incriminating to you as far as your Golden Corral venture… comments pertaining to person or persons you claim now to not know or not have familial connections to presently… THE LIST GOES ON…
    Quadriplegic???? STOP!!!!! And besides, you scammed courts into believing you were so disabled as to not be able to work. But you could run a franchise? LOL. You could go on a month long trip to Dubai? Like I said, there is a footprint…
    You are a narcissist who demands to be heard. At night when you are alone the truth of what YOU DID eats away at you. YOU alone convinced yourself thru your delusions of self grandeur that you are A.) Highly Intelligent B.) Capable of running a huge operation such as a GC franchise
    Remember how reality began to seep in just prior to the opening? When you publicly and online stated your mounting fears about having to meet payroll and overhead each month for such a big operation? Remember how you gave your GC employees fake paychecks? How NONE OF THEM EVER RECEIVED ANY PAY?
    You will never recoup your losses. Not because you are wicked or a liar. Not because your lawyers are incompetent. But because of theTRUTH. IT WILL BE THE REASON. Racism on behalf of TD or GC is not a valid claim by you, nor is sexual harassment. You ALWAYS use these claims when things do not go your way. You lie about pretty much everything. You have created over the years a fake online persona of a successful author and businesswoman. You tout yourself to be an actress and producer. It is all nonsense. Someone who pays a printer to print up some copies of a poorly written novel is not a successful author. The same goes for hideous video productions. It is a huge stretch to label yourself an actress or movie producer etc.
    You were at best a barely mediocre sales employee at Bayer. Dr. Quareshi’s mistake was the only reason you had all those riches. None were acquired through your so called talents or hard work.
    I am quite sure the world will hear from you again. You seem to be trying to cultivate a new image as a Christian inspirational speaker or some variation of such. It is actually a great area for you. The field is littered with hucksters like yourself. You have used so many others to your advantage, why not use GOD?
    Might I suggest you tone down the overt sexual overtones in your video “testimonies”? Focusing the camera on your breasts is not very Christian like. It is absurd though. You ARE hilarious!!! Perhaps a future in comedy or as a clown would be a more proper fit?

  • Hmmmm……must be nice for all the naysayers to be so perfect and righteous, free of mistakes, misfortune or any poor decision making…..ever. I applaud you.

    On the other hand some of us are fallible, we fall down we get back up, we make mistakes, go a little crazy sometimes but the point is to get back on track and keep moving.

    Your journey is not going to be the same as someone else’s but to kick someone when they’re down is BEYOND reprehensible! Before you make suggestions on how ANYONE should live their life or spend their money check yourself first, is your house in order? Really? I highly doubt any of you is walking on water.

    As for the video, until you’ve been in a dark place and fought against things that most of you would run from plus fasting, you wouldn’t understand. Fasting alone takes it’s toll on you as you are crucifying the flesh and God isn’t looking for people who “look” like Christian’s he’s not looking for actors, he’s looking at the heart, only man looks at the outside.

    No one is too far gone for God to use.

    You have no idea what God’s plans are for Sherrance’s life.

    1 Corinthians 1:27
    “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;”
    The sheer anger, hatred, jealousy and bitterness doesn’t surprise me, the fact that she has such a huge fan club does!

  • Michelles writing looks an awful lot like Sherrance Hendersons..something tells me they have the same IP address ….

    Sherrance go get another Montaulauk and associates advertisement done ….Im sure there’s plenty of more racist sexual harassing medical malpractice situations out there for you to capitalize on, though Im sure you’d just end up broke again.

    FYI to get the crowd turned against a franchisee in a franchise dispute takes talent! Congrats!

  • Anonymous, Esq.

    I get such a kick out of people who spew bible verses to defend any and all behaviors. They will manipulate the meanings of certain parts to fit their point of view. Ms. Sherry Henderson is pretending to be a Christian.

    I disagree withe Michelle’s take on everyone’s negative comments about Sherrance. I am quite sure Michelle would have no issue with others lambasting the character and actions of a Klansman or rapist. Certain individuals deserve negative feedback. Sherrance is one of them. She is arrogant, self centered, fake, manipulative, a liar, promiscuous and selfish.

    This IS NOT a woman who lost HARD EARNED millions. She lost millions she received through deception and manipulation. Yes, this woman was harmed to a degree by a doctor’s malpractice. However, she was not a quadriplegic and her injuries are nowhere near as terrible as she has some believe. She exaggerates many things.

    She WAS NEVER a Miss America beauty contestant. In her teens she represented her hometown in an African American female teen pageant. There is a New York Daily News article about her from the 1980s in their archives, if you care to read about it.

    She was not an athlete. The Catholic high school she attended claims she was on the track team for a short time and was not what one would consider a devoted athlete.

    She was never a stand out academically. Many people are mystified over how she gained acceptance into John Hopkins University’s graduate program for business, and completely stymied over her ability to receive her Master’s there.

    She had a lackluster career record after finishing grad school. The only substantial wealth she ever acquired was via her medical malpractice lawsuit. Apparently the medical mishap was actually the best thing to ever happen to her finance wise.

    According to scores of Facebook post records she was and perhaps still is, married to Milton Dewar. She claims Dewar is the father of her son. Her daughter’s father is unknown. Throughout many FB postings she portrayed an image of being a woman of Catholic faith with middle class values. She was vocal about anti abortion issues. She spoke endlessly about her newly acquired wealth and made constant mentions concerning how much she paid for the material things she so often bragged about. One such comment comes to mind which I read… “I paid $5,000 grand for that table!!! Oprah has the same table…”

    And yes, she actually typed out $5,000 grand LOL. Five grand would have been more appropriate way to write it. She makes disparaging remarks about hispanics, Indians, Asians and Caucasians. However, she did state at least once in a post that she has a white girlfriend in her circle.

    She is even so crass as to speak about the size of her husband’s member and expounds on the length of time he can go while having intercourse. There are EXTREMELY incriminating posts by her in reference to her Golden Corral venture. These posts are going to bury her chances of a successful outcome in her lawsuit. She clearly states that she is in over her head about being able to run the GC franchise prior to it even opening. She speaks about some of the manipulative actions she took in order to obtain her franchise. She posted many photos of her mansion and her inside of it.

    She brags and brags and brags… and brags some more. She illustrates for all of us just how shallow she is. She is always the center of attention. She seems to feel she is an authority on everything. She truly believes people need to and want to listen to her. Researching her past it becomes so evident why she lost all that money. It is all by her own hand.

    I am an attorney almost 30 years in practice specializing in torts. From my research on this situation and this woman it is easily foreseeable that she will not be victorious in her claim. She keeps saying GC violated the FDD. What she does not say or realize is that SHE violated the franchise contract by her actions of subterfuge. She gave 5% ownership of GC to a chef who only was used for show. She tricked GC into believing she had the experience part covered. What she did is akin to the person who lies on a job application and gets hired. They work at business for X years and do well there or not, it matters little in this example. The business discovers the employee blatantly lied on employment application. They fire the employee immediately based upon hiring them based on lies. The liar employee loses all because they lied.

    Sherrance Henderson lied to GC. She had her franchise RIGHTFULLY taken away. She can’t lie on her contract and expect it to not count. That is absurd. Her attorneys are wasting their time and money. So foolish.

  • Sherrance Henderson

    WOW I am Sherrance Henderson and this is the 1st time I read the above comments. 1stly- I believe in God with all my heart. I am a raised Catholic from 1st grade to 1 st year of college at St. Johns in Queens NY. Boy, I am shaking my head. I didn’t know I had one big and bold devils that changes his/her name to post such lies and hateful words. I do now realized that my past money was envied by a lot of people and my wealth was wanted by most. 2ndly, I have no one has given me one cent when I talk about “God.” My last video has been view over 23k times and I have almost 300 subscribers. If I want to speak about God on a public platform is not your concern. Lastly, I could list the person and person who I believe that are filled with such hate and envy but I will just pray for them, just like I pray for Golden Corral. I will let God deal with them. I am ok, if I don’t know who they are but God will take care of them because He always does.

  • Sherrance:
    Thanks for your comment.
    Can you provide an update on your legal battle with Golden Corral?

  • Black in America

    Wow, a black woman gets scammed by a franchisor and y’all dig up ways to blame her. Had it been anyone else they would have been given sympathy. Regardless, they preyed on her and waited until she made simple mistakes to remover her from her franchise. So, because it appears she may not have education, etc, etc her story doesn’t deserve to be championed on this site?

  • Black in America: Her story is being featured on this site & Sherrance has been given an unlimited opportunity to voice her opinions. ADMIN

  • black in America- If you actually read the whole story you’ll see exactly why people are critical of her, but no surprise that you automatically go straight to the racism card, which I’ve grow so sick of recently….
