BY Katherine Boccaccio

Dallas — Corner Bakery Café has launched a nationwide online ordering system, allowing patrons to place their orders in advance online so their food is waiting for them at the counter.

"Our online ordering system makes it easier than ever to have hand-crafted food morning, noon and night from Corner Bakery Cafe," said Gary Price, president. "Our guests shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience and we want them to be able to place their orders at any time, in any place and on any device."
