DALLAS — Corner Bakery Cafe’s test of its concept at an airport in Atlanta has gone so well that the company now plans to expand the brand into more of the nation’s busiest airports.
“Through the success of our Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport location, we’ve seen firsthand the tremendous opportunity airports offer our brand,” said Gary Price, president of Corner Bakery Cafe. “In Atlanta, it has been proven that our prototype flexibility and menu is ideal for airports and busy, on-the-go travelers. For sophisticated franchise investors who want to tap into a market that is ripe for growth, Corner Bakery Cafe is ready for aggressive expansion and can fit the various needs of airports nationwide.”
Ric Scicchitano, executive vice-president of food and supply chain at Corner Bakery Cafe, said the restaurant chain’s menu “is a perfect fit for any hungry traveler, whether the guest has a long lay-over or is running to catch a connecting flight.”
“Travelers are increasingly health conscious and are demanding more options from the airports in which they travel,” he said. “We are meeting that demand in Atlanta and soon will be doing the same in other busy airports across the country.”Corner Bakery opened its café in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in November 2013.
