Much more than a place to work, Panera is a place to be ourselves, and better, with plenty of opportunities for growth.
With our Career Path process, you’ll have help visualizing your potential career with Panera. Many of our retail managers started as hourly associates, crafting our sandwiches and salads, and we’re pretty proud of that. And if you have a taste for exploring different departments to gain a wider understanding of the business, we have opportunities for that too.
On average, we open 100 new Panera, LLC and independent franchise bakery-cafes each year. That means new and exciting chances to grow with us are coming up all the time.
Panera Bread’s affiliate(s) and independent franchisees may offer career path options. Check with your hiring manager to learn more.
