Corner Bakery Named One of Health Magazine's Healthiest Quick-Serve Chains

Corner Bakery Cafe was recognized as one of the healthiest quick-serve chains for 2009 in Health magazine’s March issue.

“We are committed to empowering our guests to make the choices that work best with their personal cravings and lifestyle needs by offering healthy options,” says Ric Scicchitano, senior vice president of Food and Beverage. “Whether it’s a low-calorie soup and salad Corner Combo or one of our fresh breakfast scramblers prepared to order with egg whites, our guests will find a variety of options to help maintain a healthy and nutritious diet.”

Each day, 40 types of fresh produce are brought in to create a wide array of menu options that can be customized to accommodate any individual’s dietary requirements, whether carb-conscious or vegetarian.

For a satisfying lunch or dinner, guests can have the Corner Sandwich Combo with a cup of low-fat Chicken Noodle Soup paired with a half Tuna Salad on whole grain Harvest Bread or a half Uptown Turkey Sandwich. Corner Salad Combos include a cup of soup and a cafe-sized salad tossed to order and easily customized to fit any preferences (dressing on the side, no cheese, etc.).
