Serving Food We Would Serve Our Own Families
That means crafting a menu of soups, salads and sandwiches that we are proud to feed our families. Like chicken and turkey raised without antibiotics on our salads and sandwiches. A commitment to transparency and options that empower our guests to eat the way they want. Seasonal flavors and whole grains. And commitment to removing artificial additives (flavors, sweeteners, preservatives and colors from artificial sources) from the food in our U.S. bakery-cafes and our Panera at Home grocery products.

Giving Back to the Community
We are passionate about helping those in need. Every day, we donate unsold baked goods to non-profit organizations through our Day-End Dough-Nation™ program. We also host fundraising nights and donate fresh bakery products or certificates to support local non-profit and community organizations. The Panera Cares® Community Cafes practice shared responsibility by allowing guests to donate what they can to support those who are food insecure.

It’s a family. When it’s time to go to work, I'm happy because I get to see my second family.

New Bakery-Cafe Openings
