Serving Food We Would Serve Our Own Families
Panera customers enjoy flavorful, great-tasting meals centered around freshly baked artisan bread. To us, that means serving food like we serve our own families – free of any of the items on our ‘No No’ List. Learn More

Giving Back to the Community
Along the way, we give back to our community. We enjoy working together, shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers, to help confront a serious problem plaguing communities across this country – hunger. At Panera Cares Community Cafes, we offer a dignified dining experience in an uplifting environment, and also make day-end donations to area non-profits. We hope to raise the level of awareness about those in need, while also being a catalyst for change.

Helping Families
In addition, we support our communities through day-end donations at our bakery-cafe locations and work with local non-profit organizations. It’s this warmth that you’ll find when you join Panera Bread. From our competitive compensation and benefits packages, to our unique cultural values, we’re confident you’ll find us a rewarding and fun place to work.

Diverse Workplace
Our associates come from a variety of backgrounds, with different values and beliefs. And when we all work together, we make a good team. We’re proud of our people, practices and place in the community as an employer where diverse thoughts and ideas are valued and respected.

We empower our associates to be true to themselves each and every day. We believe our culture of warmth provides an environment that embraces diverse backgrounds, values, beliefs and lifestyles orientation.
