DALLAS, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognized as the authority for hand-crafted, grilled-to-order panini, Corner Bakery Cafe has mastered the art of grill marks. So after more than 20 years of showing its "grill," the popular restaurant wants to see yours – and will award five smiling guests with free panini for a year.
The "Show Us Your Grill" contest, which runs October 22 through November 18, calls on guests to snap a photo of their shining grill (smile) next to their perfectly grilled panini for a chance to win. Facebook fans will vote for their favorite "grill," awarding the winner one free panini every week for a year. Corner Bakery Cafe's expert judges will select one additional winner in each of the following categories:
- Cheesy – Ham it up, sporting a cheese-tastic pose.
- Love at First Bite – Show us your favorite way to savor a panini.
- Hungry – Let's see how you chow down with a panini – or two or three.
- Panini Face – What's the face you make every time you lay eyes on a panini?
"Our panini make people smile," said Diana Hovey, Chief Marketing Officer for Corner Bakery Cafe. "We're excited to host the 'Show Us Your Grill' contest, which celebrates the authentic grill marks on every made-to-order panini from Corner Bakery Cafe."
