Panera is much more than a place to work. It’s a place to be ourselves, and better. That’s because there are plenty of opportunities for growth for our associates.

With our Career Path, you’ll have a process to help visualize your potential career with Panera. Many of our retail managers started as hourly associates, crafting our sandwiches and salads. We’re pretty proud of that. And we also have opportunities if you have a taste for exploring different departments to gain a wider understanding of the business.

Just like our food, there are lots of fresh opportunities. On average, we open 100 new Panera, LLC and independent franchise bakery-cafes each year. That means new and exciting opportunities to grow with us. We think you’ll see we’re serving up something special at Panera.

New Bakery-Cafe Openings

Panera is growing! As we continue to open new bakery-cafes across the United States and Canada, more career opportunities are popping up all the time.

References to “we” and “our” on this page include Panera’s corporate owned bakery-cafes and independently owned and operated franchises. Franchisees are the exclusive employer of their employees and as such are solely responsible for their hiring decisions and all employment related matters in their bakery-cafes.
