Panera Bread

The new Panera Bread store is on the corner of 3rd SE and Everett Mall Way

Well the P.R. Department at Panera Bread wasn’t forthcoming with a lot of details today but did say that the Panera Bread store at the corner of Everett Mall Way and 3rd Ave. SE will open Friday morning. I asked how many people were employed and why they chose Everett but got no response. One thing is obvious, more tasty food and more jobs are a good thing for Everett.

UPDATE 10:45am Fri 5/17/13:

Just received the following this morning from Stephanie Wren, Senior Regional Marketing Manager at Panera Bread…

Thank you for your voicemail the other day and I just received confirmation that we hired approximately 50 employees. We are very excited to be opening today in Everett. We selected the city of Everett as it truly is an all-American city with its beauty of the harbor, great fishing and a relaxing place to live.

Ms. Wren also sent along this…
