About the Company

We are Panera Bread. And we believe that good food, food you can feel good about, can bring out the best in all of us. Food served in a warm, welcoming environment, by people who care. To us, that`s good eating and that`s why we`re here. Thirty years ago, we started with one goal: to bake fresh bread from fresh dough every day in every bakery-cafe. No artificial preservatives or short cuts, just our bakers and hot ovens. We also wanted to be part of our communities so we donated what was left at the end of day to our neighbors in need. As time went by, we opened new bakery-cafes across the country, and we looked for ways to get better. We added calories to our menu (long before we had to), provided free Wi-Fi (before it was popular) and switched to poultry and pork raised without antibiotics. Now, with over 2,000 bakery-cafes in the U.S. and Canada, we still pay attention to the important things. Like serving food that`s free of the artificial stuff and making sure you have a great experience (have you tried our online ordering?). All of this comes down to wanting for our guests exactly what we want for our own families. Simply: good food.
