Feeding the day in five new locations across the country, Corner Bakery Cafe is opening doors for both guests and job seekers with two new company-owned restaurants in Los Angeles and Las Colinas, Texas, and three new franchise-owned cafes in Peoria, Arizona; El Paso, Texas; and Flowood, Mississippi.

“We are thrilled to introduce our signature dishes to five new neighborhoods,” says Jim Vinz, Corner Bakery Cafe President and Chief Operating Officer.

“The new company-owned locations in Los Angeles and the Dallas area expand our presence in communities that continue to show us tremendous support, and with the backing of our franchisee partners, Corner Bakery Cafe has also enjoyed an incredible welcome in completely new regions.”

From a small bread bakery on a corner in downtown Chicago to a national cornerstone of fast-casual dining, Corner Bakery Cafe opened its first location in 1991 and now operates more than 115 company-owned and franchised locations across the country, including these five new cafe openings, which together have created a total of over 250 new jobs.

Opening today, the Beverly Connection Corner Bakery Cafe is located at 100 N. La Cienega, Suite 120, Los Angeles, 90048, in the Beverly Connection shopping center.

The 19th Dallas-area location, the Las Colinas Corner Bakery Cafe opened March 16 at 118 E. John Carpenter Freeway, Suite 100, Las Colinas, Texas, 75039.

Helping fuel the brand’s nationwide growth, three new franchise partners just opened the doors of their first cafes, bringing Corner Bakery’s relaxing dining experience, great value and unsurpassed catering to new neighborhoods.
