Coco’s Bakery was founded in 1948 in Corona Del Mar, California. The original name was The Snack Shop”. The company has been sold several times over the years, most recently in 2018 to Shari’s Pies.
Coco’s Bakery is a casual restaurant chain which features typical American cuisine, such as hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches, in addition to bakery items such as pies, cakes, and muffins. Bakery items are displayed in a case near the front door and can be purchased to go or they can be ordered by the piece to accompany meals.
The company currently has 57 locations in California, Arizona, and Nevada. Coco’s has been experiencing financial difficulties and shut down 38 locations without warning in April of 2015, soon after purchase by the Zensho Company.
In September 2018, it was announced that Shari’s Cafe & Pies had taken over Carrows Restaurants and Coco’s Bakery.
