Panera Bread Menu Prices

Taking into account the fact that Panera Bread is a chain of fast casual cafés and restaurants, you shouldn’t be surprised that the Panera Bread prices are slightly higher than at most fast-food places. For instance, you may easily notice how much lower are the prices at Jack in the Box, compared versus these Panera Bread menu prices.

However, it is necessary to compare these Panera Bread prices to the prices of other fast casual restaurants. For instance, let’s look at the Zaxby’s prices. There, you can see that sandwiches at Zaxby’s cost from $3.50 to $6.00, while the prices of sandwiches at Panera Bread vary from $5.30 to $9.30 – quite a notable difference. Salads, however, can be both cheaper and mor expensive at Panera Bread – their variety is just overwhelming here. But, even with that, the Panera Bread menu prices tend to be somewhat higher than at Zaxby’s.

Besides, you can see right away that, compared to the Panera Bread prices, the prices at Boston Market are more affordable, as well. Nonetheless, the prices at Panera Bread may be somewhat similar to the prices of a fast-food company, known for its health-conscious approach: you can just look at the Subway menu prices. There, you will notice that, generally, healthy foods tend to cost more.

(Video) We Tried Panera's Popular Menu Items So You Know What To Order

But considering that this restaurant chain is not a fast-food one, there are, unfortunately, no way how you can benefit from the Panera Bread menu prices. In fact, the only way how you can save a bit of your money with these Panera Bread prices is by ordering larger portions, which, thus, would cost cheaper.

What Panera Bread Restaurants Are Known For

Indeed, Panera Bread restaurants are best known for their bakery products and being an advocate of healthy foods. In fact, the Health magazine ranked Panera Bread no. 1 for the healthiest meal options at all times of the day.

So, Panera Bread offer meals that contain only high-quality ingredients and contain no artificial additives. Besides, the company is also well-known for its fantastic bread bowls and a huge variety of delicious salads.

Panera Bread Review

To start with, one has to say that Panera Bread locations are not actually restaurants, but are rather regarded as fast casual bakery cafés. Whenever you pop in a Panera Bread restaurant, you are always guaranteed to meet nice, welcoming staff. The atmosphere is always great at Panera, leaving you wishing to stay for longer.

In fact, Panera Bread cafés are a fantastic place both for simply having a coffee with a croissant as well as for having a full meal during the work break. The company promises a great service to its customers, and offers plenty of health-conscious foods. Besides, you can both order a takeout or dine in. Recently, the company also launched its own delivery service, so you can order healthy food online.

Because the company is targeting health-conscious consumers and uses only high-quality ingredients, the Panera Bread prices tend to be actually higher than at many other restaurants. But you can see from our analysis above that this is quite a usual thing for the companies that offer healthy foods – healthier ingredients simply cost more.

(Video) The Rise of Panera Bread

Overall, Panera Bread is a slightly more expensive, yet a great place for a healthy meal. Here, you will get a great customer service, healthy meals, and a great atmosphere.

Company’s History

As a matter of fact, the company’s roots can be traced back to 1987, when Ken and Linda Rosenthal opened their St. Louis Bread Company in Kirkwood, Missouri. In 1993, however, that company was acquired by Au Bon Pair, an American fast casual restaurant company. In 1997, however, Au Bon Pair changed its name to simply “Panera,” and the number of the bakery cafés increased to 20 in the St. Louis area.

After a number of takeovers, Panera Bread had only 70 locations in 10 U.S. states, mostly in the West and Southwest. But already in 2016, the company opened its 2000th restaurant.

At the present time, there are more than 2,000 Panera Bread bakery cafés in 47 U.S. states and Canada. In fact, more than 140,000 people currently work for the company. Nowadays, the company is a subsidiary of JAB Holding Company, which owns a dozen other companies, such as Krispy Kreme (you can also check the Krispy Kreme menu prices).

Panera Bread Hours

When you are seeing the number of the company’s cafés, you understand why their opening hours may vary from one location to another. So, if you are looking for the hours of a specific restaurant, we recommend you to check this info on the Panera Bread official website.
