Fifteen months after confirmation it was on the way and three years since the expansion was first proposed, the Corner Bakery Cafe is almost ready to debut on Henderson's Stephanie Street.
Established in Chicago in 1991 and now expanded to more than 190 nationwide locations, the casual restaurant will also install a drive-thru at the Galleria Commons, close to Sunset Station.
Now hiring, this month the cafe is seeking City of Henderson approval process for its signage, but is expected to open its doors before the end of May.
The 3,030-square-foot space will serve up a menu of "breads, hot breakfasts, made-to-order salads, sandwiches, panini and pastas" to be eaten on site or to go. Popular dishes include a chicken pomodori panini, the Trio Salad, and a cinnamon creme cake.
Last year, cafe franchiser Silver State Restaurants Inc., who operate 13 local Jack-in-the-Box stores, explained he was aiming to price cap each item on the menu at $8.99 and serve from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
Seen as a close rival to another recent import, Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, the Stephanie Corner Bakery Cafe as it is named on the awnings, resides between Warm Springs and Sunset Roads, less than a quarter of a mile from Chick-fil-A.
