Panera Bread franchise reaches two new milestones

Last month, Panera Bread announced the opening of its 1,500th bakery-cafe and its first in Manhattan. Furthermore, it is expecting three other Manhattan bakery-cafes to open in 2012.

Ron Shaich, Panera Bread Founder and Executive Chairman, commented, “We are thrilled to be celebrating two milestones today – the opening of our 1,500th bakery-cafe, as well as Panera’s entry into the food mecca that is Manhattan. While New York City consumers have their pick of options, we believe that the Panera experience – high-quality food rooted in hand-crafted, artisan bread, served in a warm and welcoming environment by people who care – will distinguish Panera from the rest. Not only are we excited about opening our 1,500th bakery-cafe but we’re pleased about joining four neighborhoods across Manhattan over the coming months.”

As of September 27, 2011, Panera Bread Company owned and franchised 1,504 bakery-cafes under the Panera Bread®, Saint Louis Bread Co.® and Paradise Bakery & Café® names. Its bakery-cafes are principally located in suburban, strip mall, and regional mall locations. (kbp)
