Corner Bakery Café has named franchise veteran Gary Price as its president.
Price, who will be responsible for overall strategy and growth, joins Corner Bakery Café as the fast casual brand plans to double its footprint in the U.S. over the next four years through a combination of franchised and company-owned cafes.
"I'm incredibly excited to be a part of Corner Bakery," Price said in a company press release.
