Corner Bakery launches cross-channel customer experience management program with SMG

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Service Management Group (SMG), a global customer, patient and employee experience management partner to more than 500 brands, has announced a new customer experience management program with Corner Bakery Café. The fast-casual chain is partnering with SMG to integrate digital feedback data from Olo with guest feedback data for a more comprehensive and actionable view of the customer experience.

Corner Bakery is an American bakery and café concept offering ingredient-inspired, prepared-to-order breakfast, lunch, dinner and catering menus. Established in 1991, the fast-casual chain has nearly 200 locations across 23 states and the District of Columbia.

“Our partnership with SMG is helping us get a more holistic view of the customer experience and provide our restaurant teams with insights that help them continually elevate the guest experience,” said Corner Bakery COO Eric Wyatt. “With more restaurant orders moving online and dining shifting to off-premise, we’re focused on meeting our guests’ evolving dining needs with convenient and highly satisfying experiences.”

Corner Bakery is capturing customer feedback at the restaurant level and analyzing it alongside digital feedback data from Olo in the smg360® platform. With SMG’s advanced case management, restaurant leaders receive automated alerts when cases are created so field teams can respond quickly and efficiently close the loop with guests. In combination with enterprise customer experience metrics, intuitive dashboards and role-based reporting in the smg360® platform provide restaurant teams with real-time, location-level insights.
