Panera Bread announced yesterday an immediate need for store managers in the Detroit area. More than 17 locations are in need of help, all being full time permanent positions according to the chain of bakery restaurants.

The openings are in corporate owned restaurants, not franchised locations. This means managers are working for a larger company rather than the smaller franchise operations. It also can place success driven individuals into higher level positions with the corporation according to Guillermo Williams of, a Rochester Hills employee training company.

“Job seekers tend to shy away from openings at small fast-food type restaurants as they see the jobs are without forward advancement,” says Williams. “In actuality they can be a starting point on a great career in the food industry.”

Panera’s corporate site says their expansion continues. Over the last 20 years the chain has been expanding to the tune of 70 to 100 units per year.

Interested applicants need to go to to file an application.

According to the postings the successful applicant needs to demonstrate the following:

  • Proven innovative leadership experience and skills.
  • Must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Must be able to work a flexible schedule including opening, closing, weekends and holidays.
  • Must have the "run it like you own it" mentality.

Panera Bread is a very popular location for business meetings because of their table layouts. Restaurants often have multiple types of settings. At the Adams Road location in Rochester Hills, Mich., the restaurant has typical booths, traditional rectangular tables, and smaller seating arrangements around circular tables. This allows for parties of various sizes to be comfortable with any number of guests.
