There’s a new Panera Bread in town and it offers something that no other Panera offers: a drive-thru. Located at 10551 Innovation Drive at Austin Landing, it still offers the great neighborhood feel and welcoming atmosphere. This marks the beginning of Panara Bread’s 31st Southwest Ohio Bakery-café.
“We had over 60 people waiting for the doors to open. The drive-thru was wrapped around the parking lot. It was exciting to see how many people were just as excited as us about the grand opening,” said employee, Todd.
During the grand opening, Panera offered free coffee tumblers and fresh brewed coffee with refills through September 15th. The first 1,000 customers were provided a fresh Cinnamon Crunch Bagel. Additionally, on Monday and Tuesday, Panera gave away $5 Panera gift cards to customers who ordered “You Pick Two” or Pasta Entrees.
“We look forward to serving customers in the Dayton area with our new bakery-café featuring drive-thru convenience, as well as becoming a greater part of the community. We feel strongly about being a responsible corporate citizen and plan to support Children’s Hunger Alliance, neighborhood fundraisers, and charitable efforts on an on-going basis,” said Craig Flom, President of Breads of the World, LLC, and franchisee of Panera Bread in Southwest Ohio.
