Nationally-Recognized Marketing Veteran Joins Neighborhood Cafe During Rapid Growth Phase

DALLAS - June 17, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Corner Bakery Cafe, a fast-casual restaurant franchise known for its ingredient-inspired menu and neighborhood cafe atmosphere, today announces the appointment of food and beverage and consumer package goods industry veteran Justin Lambeth as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

Lambeth joins Corner Bakery Cafe following several leadership roles at PepsiCo Inc., where he was responsible for marketing, consumer engagement and shopper marketing for the company's Quaker Division as CMO. Prior to his work with the Quaker division, Lambeth held the role of Vice President at Frito-Lay as well as leadership roles at H.J. Heinz and Nabisco Inc.

His appointment coincides with what is expected to be Corner Bakery Cafe's best year in company history.

"Corner Bakery Cafe's creativity and willingness to think outside the box is something I've always been a fan of from afar.
