Panera Bread Franchises

Posted By Panera Bread I like It Learn More

The future growth of Panera Bread will be based upon company bakery-cafe development as well as the continued sale of franchise area development agreements.

Panera Bread does not sell single-unit franchises, so it is not possible to open just one bakery-cafe. Rather, we have chosen to develop by selling market areas which require the franchise developer to open a number of units, typically 15 bakery-cafes in a period of 6 years.

Panera Bread franchises must be well-capitalized to open great bakery-cafes and meet this aggressive development schedule. Additionally, they must have a proven track record as excellent multi-unit restaurant operators to operate great Panera Bread bakery-cafes.

Applicants must meet these criteria to gain consideration for a Panera Bread franchise:

  • Experience as a multi-unit restaurant operator
  • Recognition as a top restaurant operator
  • Net worth of $7.5 million
  • Liquid assets of $3 million
  • Infrastructure and resources to meet our development schedule
  • Real estate experience in the market to be developed
  • Total commitment to the development of the Panera Bread brand
  • Cultural fit and a passion for fresh bread
