Ask a dozen people what is their favorite Panera Bread sandwich and you are likely to get numerous answers.
Their sandwiches are just that good.
Delicious they are.
The team at fastfoodmenuprices.com educate, “If you are looking for the goodness of a sandwich without the high calorie content, this is the best choice for you. The Tomato Mozzarella Flatbread only has 330 calories, 18 grams fat, and 460 mg sodium which means you can have a satisfying meal without the guilt.”
Everyone’s Favorite Panera Bread Sandwiches

- Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich On Tomato Basil.

- Tuna Salad Sandwich On Honey Wheat.
- Tomato Mozzarella Flatbread.
Sounds so good. Sounds so delicious. Wish we had one right now.
We are not surprised. Making healthy and tasty food is what they are all about.
At their aroma filled website they share, “And we believe that good food, food you can feel good about, can bring out the best in all of us. Food served in a warm, welcoming environment, by people who care. To us, that’s good eating and that’s why we’re here.”
We are certainly glad they are there too and here for all of us.
They have an intriguing history. We read with great interest, “Panera began in 1980 as a single, 400-square-foot cookie store in Boston, Massachusetts, and is now a leading restaurant brand with more than 2,300 bakery-cafes in the United States and Canada, 140,000 associates and annual systemwide sales in the billions.
Our success has been fueled by one thing: our unending desire to bring to life fresh ideas about living and eating well. We want our guests to know the joys of great food served by people who truly care. We want them to have the food they crave, when they want it, how they want it, where they want it. We have never stopped innovating to do just that.
Our focus on elevating the guest experience intensified in the 2000s. We rolled out free WiFi and design touches like fireplaces that encouraged guests to linger. We set new industry standards for food quality, wellness and transparency by introducing chicken raised without antibiotics, eliminating all non-naturally occurring trans fats from our foods and voluntarily disclosing calories on our menus. By the end of the decade, Panera had nearly 1,500 bakery-cafes.
More recently, our team has turned its attention to the growing demand for more healthful craft food options available through a variety of convenient channels. Today, Panera is leading the industry in clean food, digital sales, loyalty, delivery and catering. We opened our 2,000th cafe in 2016 and we’re not slowing down.”
Very informative. Very consistent with their positive involvement in the communities that they serve.
Here is one example.
As reported by the television station wzzm13.com, “A remote center to test for the coronavirus will open today in Grand Haven.
The North Ottawa Community Health System worked with the Ottawa County health department to ready the location at the former Panera Bread restaurant in the 1100 block of Beacon Boulevard.”
So many of us are sheltering during these pandemic times and Panera Bread is offering a service that should make our lives easier.
Are you hungry?
Here is some good news for you.
Panera Makes It Easier To Provide Clean, Wholesome Meals With Free Delivery On $15 Orders Through March 31
Rapid Pick-Up®, Delivery and Drive-Thru Options Help Take the Stress Out of Providing Better-for-You Options for Families
- LOUIS, March 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — As more families stay in together in these unprecedented times, Panera wants to help remove the stress around meal times and make it easier to get good, wholesome food on the table. That’s why Panera announced today that it will offer free delivery now through the end of March on orders of $15 or more made via the Panera App or website. Guests can select from a variety of options the whole family will love — and upon checkout, enter the promo code FREEDELIVERY to have delicious, better-for-you food delivered right to your doorstep.
“This is a stressful time for families trying to provide good, wholesome meals during this crisis. Panera is here to help by removing some of the stress and making it easier to access better-for-you food,” said Niren Chaudhary, Panera CEO. “We believe good food should be accessible to all, and Panera delivery can help people with an easy, clean meal everyone will love. We’re also taking extraordinary precautions to ensure we can continue to safely serve our communities with their Panera favorites at home.”
As part of Panera’s ongoing effort to protect the health and safety of associates and guests in light of the COVID-19 crisis, deliveries are now contactless – Panera delivery drivers will only leave your meal at your front door, front desk or the location of your choice, and in markets that offer order tracking, you’ll receive a text message or phone call when it arrives. Guests can use the delivery instructions to tell our drivers the best place to drop off the meal.
Following the CDC’s recommendations around social distancing, all Panera cafes are adhering to governmental regulations regarding occupancy or entry into our bakery-cafes, and all company-owned bakery-cafes have moved to a “to go” model nationwide. This means we will continue to serve you via To-Go, Rapid Pick Up, Drive Thru and Delivery, and Panera is focused on serving guests safely on the go through contactless delivery and mindful packaging. All to-go bags for all orders will be sealed shut to further protect your meal.
Free delivery offer is valid only for orders placed on the Panera app or website and fulfilled on 3/20/20-3/31/20, within Panera’s delivery areas from participating U.S. Panera locations, during operating hours for such locations. Gift card purchases, third party delivery and catering orders excluded. Full details on the promotion can be found on PaneraBread.com.
About Panera Bread
Thirty years ago, at a time when quick service meant low quality, Panera set out to challenge this expectation. We believed that food that was good and that you could feel good about, served in a warm and welcoming environment by people who cared, could bring out the best in all of us. To us, that is food as it should be and that is why we exist.
So, we began with a simple commitment: to bake bread fresh every day in our bakery-cafes. No short cuts, just bakers with simple ingredients and hot ovens. Each night, any unsold bread and baked goods were shared with neighbors in need.
These traditions carry on today, as we have continued to find ways to be an ally for wellness to our guests. That means crafting a menu of soups, salads and sandwiches that we are proud to feed our families. Like poultry and pork 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 a commitment to removing or not using artificial additives (preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, and colors from artificial sources on our No No list) in the food in our bakery-cafes. Why? Because we think that simpler is better and we believe in serving food as it should be. Because when you don’t have to compromise to eat well, all that is left is the joy of eating.
We’re also focused on improving quality and convenience. With investments in technology and operations, we now offer new ways to enjoy your Panera favorites – like mobile ordering and Rapid Pick-Up® for to-go orders and delivery – all designed to make things easier for our guests.
As of December 30, 2019, there were 2,178 bakery-cafes in 48 states and in Ontario, Canada, operating under the Panera Bread® or Saint Louis Bread Co.® names.
