Panera Bread History

Panera Bread began in 1993 when Au Bon Pain purchased the St. Louis Bread Company.  In 1999, Au Bon Pain sold it’s other restaurants and renamed itself to Panera Bread Company, realizing the huge potential of the brand.

In 2007, the chain purchased 70 stores from Paradise Bakery & Cafe, a Phoenix, AZ based company.

In 2008, Panera expanded operations into Canada.

Panera currently has over 1500 locations in 41 US states and Canada.  The Panera Bread corporate office is still located in St. Louis, Missouri.    The company’s locations in St Louis still operate under the name St. Louis Bread Company.

2nd amendment: right to bear arms. This amendment gives myself, and everyone in my country the right to carry a gun. I’ve seen that panera as a corporate has a “no gun” policy. This is absolute garbage! As a United States citizen and soldier I will never again take my business to any of your locations ever again! I will continue to spread the word around to every single person I come into contact with in hopes of your company to lose business and become forced to shut down multiple locations! If you don’t want guns then take your business to a country where they are illegal! Just a simple reminder that this is AMERICA and many people have died overseas fighting for your rights and freedom! Hope you take all of this into consideration.
Sincerely, ex customer/United states veteran

Gun control, really? Go back to the restaurant business. Stay out of politics. My family and friends will no longer spend lunches at your restaurants.

I just heard of your company asking me to not bring my legal firearm, which I have a permit to carry concealed.

I am going to honor your request by not entering any of your locations by myself or with my family.

I went to the Panera in Paramus NJ and the place was so disgusting , the soda machine was dirty the floor with garbage every wear and dirty too. And when I got to the table it was dirty too and the person that clean see that I was there waiting for her to clean the table and she totally ignore me . I took picture of the soda machine and the floor if you want to see them . I couldn’t believe how dirty and disgusted was the place and the food not the same any more . So desapointed . Last time for me there.

Both Paneras in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, IA are terrible in many ways. Rude staff, chicken ceasar salad never has chicken and the cups of dressing are set directly on the salad ..how unsanitary! That’s just the beginning…..

just a note to mention that there is no way to leave a comment after eating at a panera bread company. a person used to be able. YOUR BREAD COMPANY IN MY AREA IS GETTING WORST. THE RESTROOMS NEED REMODELING. THE ONE WE EAT AT AT LEAST 6 TIMES A MONTH AND ALSO BUY BAKER’S DOZEN ON TUESDAY. THE RESTROOM IS VERY, VERY FILTHY AND THE DINING AREA IS ALSO FILTHY, FLOOR AND TABLES THE ENTIRE PLACE WAS TERRIBLE 9/14/1. THE FOOD HAS ALSO CHANGED TO THE WORST IN THE AMOUNT SERVED . ALSO THE BREAD HAS CHANGED TO ROLLS. MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE GOING ELSEWHERE TO EAT THAN THE AREAS BREAD COMPANY. SORRY TO SAY. TOM D.

So why do you continue to go there?

The location at Mall of Ga -was- visited by my family (wife/son/me) sometimes twice per month on weekends. I have a carry permit and in my back pocket I keep a .380 pistol for my family’s (and the society around me) safety. As of 2 weeks ago we’ve stopped visiting Panera Bread and will NEVER RETURN FOR LIFE. May the location close down soon for all I care. That civilian disarmament zone is a danger to it’s employees, the honest public, and this Country’s fabric for the entire time it stands. Let the “sheep” feed there, they deserve it.

I’m a retired United States Air Force officer. I was a security forces officer. I am a licensed concealed weapon carrier. I took special classes involving legalities here in Tennessee. I fully understand the terrific responsibilities my decision has. Your company policy has taken from me my ability to protect myself in dire circumstances. I treasure that ability as a last effort against thugs or others’ evil intentions. I have decided to not partake in what your restaurant has to offer. Since profit margins in restaurants are not enormous, perhaps you will rethink your policy from the perspective of us rational, calm, reflective, law-abiding citizens. Or, perhaps you will hire armed security to guard the facility and escort those of us who feel we need escort to our vehicles.

I have just had my last meal at your at best eatable over priced restaurant. Having read your stand on my right to bear arms, you got it. I don’t need your shitty food and you and your stock holders don’t need my money. By the way you chicken shits need to post your demand on the door since you feel so strongly on the matyer
