Why Panera? (More than Our bread)
We are bakers of bread. We are fresh from the oven. We are a simple pleasure, honest and genuine. We are a life story told over dinner. We are a long lunch with an old friend. We are your weekday morning ritual. We are the kindest gesture of neighbors.
We are home. We are family. We are friends.
Panera Bread is a culture of warmth that provides an environment which allows us to be ourselves while embracing diverse backgrounds, values, and beliefs. Your talents and our vision combine to provide opportunities that promote your individual development and our continued success.
Clean, Fresh Ingredients Selected for Quality
We’ve often been asked why we’re obsessed with clean food. Clean simply means we don’t fill our pantry with artificial preservatives, sweeteners, and flavors, along with colors from artificial sources that are detailed on our No-No List. It’s because we believe clean food tastes better, allowing the freshness, quality, flavors, and craft to shine through. At the end of 2020, Plant-based dishes accounted for 25% of our menu. In the coming years, our long-term aspiration is to have a menu where half of our entrees are Plant-based, starting with one new option in every menu category.
Respect for the Planet
In October 2021, Panera Bread committed to becoming Climate Positive by 2050. Panera will set a Science-Based Target (SBT) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout our operations and within our supply chain. Our work has already begun and includes projects such as creating low-carbon Cool Food Meals, investing in more efficient equipment, and shrinking our packaging footprint.
Creating a guest-focused experience
Whether our customers stop by for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or something in between, Panera is a place where they can relax with family and friends or catch a quiet moment alone to recharge. We want Panera to be their everyday oasis, a refuge, a second home. With every interaction, our goal is to create a genuine human connection with our customers, one based on kindness and respect. We aim to provide every guest with a welcoming and personalized experience no matter whether they order in a bakery-cafe or online.
The workplace culture we cultivate is based on warmth. We also want every associate to feel a sense of

Friends in Knead
Friends in Knead is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides critically needed assistance to Panera associates facing unexpected hardships such as household disasters, funeral expenses, or emergency travel expenses. It has traditionally been funded through voluntary donations made by associates. In 2020, Friends in Knead gave 116 grants totaling just over $186,000.
We have been serving communities in need for over 35 years. We have continued to serve, connect, and support local community organizations through donations, fundraising, and grant opportunities.

Our vision is to create a healthier and happier world through service to our communities.
