The Dallas-based Corner Bakery Cafe chain plans to expand into six Southeastern cities, and Tampa's among the targeted markets alongside destinations like New Orleans and Charleston, South Carolina.

In a statement, Gregg Koffler, vice president of franchise sales for Corner Bakery Cafe, said the restaurant brand intends to double its national franchisee footprint in the next two years.

Founded in 1991, the fast-casual, menu-driven concept carries a neighborhood feel and dishes out fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including specialty sweets, made-to-order sandwiches and signature salads. The brand operates cafes in 21 states and Washington, D.C., as well as one Bay area location off Brandon Boulevard.
