Ideal Franchising Candidate


Corner Bakery Cafe appreciates a franchise owner who loves food as much as they do. The franchise owner must be the "best in class" operator who is interested in developing multiple cafes in a market or combination of markets. Relevant multi-unit restaurant/retail experience in the market they will be developing is a must. Real estate experience is also strongly encouraged.
