Panera Bread Company is an American chain of bakery-café fast casual restaurants in the United States and Canada.
Panera is much more than a place to work. It’s a place to be ourselves, and better. That’s because there are plenty of opportunities for growth for our associates.
With our Career Path, you’ll have a process to help visualize your potential career with Panera. Many of our retail managers started as hourly associates, crafting our sandwiches and salads. We’re pretty proud of that. And we also have opportunities if you have a taste for exploring different departments to gain a wider understanding of the business.
Just like our food, there are lots of fresh opportunities. On average, we open 100 new Panera, LLC and independent franchise bakery-cafes each year. That means new and exciting opportunities to grow with us. We think you’ll see we’re serving up something special at Panera.
