Corner Bakery Cafe on 14th in Washington, D.C.

Corner Bakery Cafe is a U.S. chain of cafes that specialize in pastries, breads, breakfast dishes, gourmet sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, and pasta. Corner Bakery Cafe is considered to be a part of the fast casual market segment of the food service industry, offering a somewhat higher quality of food and atmosphere than a typical fast food restaurant, and offering limited table service.

Corner Bakery Cafe is owned by CBC Restaurant Corporation, an affiliate of Il Fornaio (America) Corporation based in Dallas, Texas. It was sold to Il Fornaio in 2005 by Brinker International and founded by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, a Chicago theme restaurant operator.

Roark Capital Group bought Il Fornaio in 2011.[1]

Corner Bakery's CEO is Frank Paci. Paci joined Corner Bakery Cafe in October 2015. Paci is an accomplished executive with over 25 years of experience leading retail and foodservice brands. He most recently served as President and CEO at Einstein Noah Restaurant Group, Inc. He previously was President and CEO of McAlister’s Deli, a 300-plus unit fast casual brand, and was Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at the Pantry, Inc., a publicly traded convenience store chain with over 1,500 locations.[2] Mike Hislop is the Chairman of the Board. Mike came on as COO after the sale to CBC Restaurant Corporation. Gary Price the previous President joined the company in 2012. Jim Vinz the previous President & COO had been with the company in various capacities since 1995 and was promoted to COO in 2005 and President in 2006.
