Corner Bakery Cafe was founded in 1991. The company operates a chain of casual dining restaurants which typically serve better quality food than fast food restaurants, but have limited table service. The company began franchising operations in the mid-1990’s.
Today, the company is owned by CBC Restaurant Corp, whose current CEO Frank Paci, has more than 25 years of food service experience. The company currently has more than 192 locations in 11 states. In November of 2015, the company made a deal with Walmart to be their exclusive dining outlet at all Walmart Supercenters. All current outlets will be remodeled and rebranded with the Corner Bakery Cafe logo. The transition was expected to begin in August of 2016.
Corner Bakery Cafe has recently begun aggressive expansion plans, with new locations opening in Bozeman, Montana, Rhode Island, and Louisiana in late 2016.
