Serving Food We Would Serve Our Own Families

We believe food should taste good. It should feel good. It should do good things for you and the world around you.

From serving clean food with no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or colors from artificial sources, to creating a curated and customizable menu so you can eat the way you want, we’re on a never-ending journey to serve delicious food that is better for you, for our associates and for the world we live in.

Embracing Diversity

At Panera, LLC, our culture of warmth provides an environment that embraces diverse backgrounds, values, beliefs and experiences. We encourage our associates to be their best authentic selves each day.

We believe the diversity of our associates strengthens our innovative spirit and brings our cultural values to life. We’re proud of our people, practices and place in the community as an employer where diverse thoughts and ideas are valued and respected.

Giving Back to the Community

At Panera, we believe we’re more than a restaurant; we’re a member of each and every community we serve-and we are passionate about helping those in need in our communities. Every day, we donate unsold baked goods to non-profit organizations through our Day-End Dough-Nation™ program.

Through Panera Gives, we support events held by non-profit organizations with donations of certificates or fresh bakery products. And with Fundraising Nights and the Scrip Fundraising program, we help non-profit organizations raise money for their causes.

Rewarding work, benefits that matter

We consider our team our family and recognize everyone has different needs.

With more than 2,000 Panera, LLC, affiliate and independent franchise Panera Bread 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 countless associates.


As a team, we love preparing and delivering a great customer experience, being a place people want to be and striving every day to be better.

Career Path


Much more than a place to work, Panera is a place to be ourselves, and better, with plenty of opportunities for growth.



With our Career Path process, you’ll have help visualizing your potential career with Panera. Many of our retail managers started as hourly associates, crafting our sandwiches and salads, and we’re pretty proud of that.



If you have a taste for exploring different departments to gain a wider understanding of the business, we have opportunities for that too.



On average, we open 100 new Panera, LLC and independent franchise bakery-cafes each year. That means new and exciting chances to grow with us are coming up all the time.
