panera bread

Panera Bread restaurant is known in America as the bakers of bread that is fresh from the oven. This thought is what makes the Panera Bread Menu a popular one throughout the country. Those who have enjoyed the delicacies served at the Panera Bread restaurant would vouch for the fact that this menu is a “symbol of warmth and welcome.”




This restaurant was founded by partners Louis Kane and Ron Shaich in 1981 as Au Bon Pain Co. The company enjoyed a prosperous run along the East Coast of the US as well as in other parts of the world through the 80s and 90s. Today, the company has a domineering presence in the bakery-cafe category in America. As is evident from the name itself, the Panera Bread Menu is divided into two separate sections:- Bakery Menu and Cafe Menu.
