Dallas-based Corner Bakery Café plans to open up to nine new restaurant locations in the San Diego region, as part of a new franchise agreement with Feast California Café LLC of Murrieta.

The company did not disclose exact locations or financial terms of the deal. There are currently three Corner Bakery locations in San Diego County.

The franchisee is part of Feast Foods LLC, led by owner Ben Eramya, which also operates 170 franchised restaurants of San Diego’s Jack in the Box Inc. in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest.

Corner Bakery Café, started in 1991, is a fast-casual restaurant chain with 150 company-owned and franchised locations nationwide. The chain is owned and operated by CBC Restaurant Corp., which was acquired in 2011 by Roark Capital Group, an Atlanta-based private equity firm.

The restaurants serve items including sandwiches, salads and pastries.
