Organization Structure

We are Panera Bread 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. Panera began in 1980 as a cookie store in Boston, Massachusetts, and is now a leading restaurant brand with more than 2,100 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; and we have never stopped innovating to do just that. In everything we do, we are inspired by our mission and purpose: “One Panera for a Healthier and Happier World.” We believe in serving delicious, freshly prepared, clean dishes made with carefully selected ingredients that we would be proud to serve our own families. Our menu, crafted by chefs and bakers, features classic, comforting dishes, each with an intriguing twist. We respect our planet and take measures to lessen our impacts. We believe in treating people with warmth, kindness, and respect, whether it’s a guest in our cafe or one of our associates. We believe in helping our local communities, especially in times of need. 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.
