About Panera Bread LLC

With more than 2,000 Panera LLC, affiliates and independent franchise bakery-cafes in the Panera Bread® family, and more locations opening all the time, we’ve been an excellent source of career and personal growth opportunities for more than 25 years.

Serving Food We Would Serve Our Own Families
That means crafting a menu of soups, salads and sandwiches that we are proud to feed our families. Like chicken and turkey raised without antibiotics on our salads and sandwiches. A commitment to transparency and options that empower our guests to eat the way they want. Seasonal flavors and whole grains. And commitment to removing artificial additives (flavors, sweeteners, preservatives and colors from artificial sources) from the food in our U.S. bakery-cafes and our Panera at Home grocery products.

Giving Back to the Community
We are passionate about helping those in need. Every day, we donate unsold baked goods to non-profit organizations through our Day-End Dough-Nation™ program. We also host fundraising nights and donate fresh bakery products or certificates to support local non-profit and community organizations. The Panera Cares® Community Cafes practice shared responsibility by allowing guests to donate what they can to support those who are food insecure.

Diverse Workplace
At Panera LLC, our associates come from a variety of backgrounds, with different values and beliefs. And when we all work together, we make a good team. We’re proud of our people, practices and place in the community as an employer where diverse thoughts and ideas are valued and respected.

We encourage our associates to be true to themselves each and every day. We believe our culture of warmth provides an environment that embraces diverse backgrounds, values, beliefs and lifestyles.


Team Lead

May 2021 - September 2021 West Bloomfield Township, MI
“Everything but my favorite thing was my coworkers. Because of the pandemic, there were fewer workers at the store and we went through a lot together that made us really friendly and I always enjoyed going to work. I also really appreciated how flexible that management was with my schedule and the way that they handled conflicts between customers and employees and between two or more employees. ”
