PANERA BREAD® OPENS SECOND BAKERY-CAFÉ ON CAPE COD
Bakery-Cafe Will Also Offer Full Catering Menu
Panera Bread announced today that it will open its newest bakery-cafe in the Mashpee Commons in Mashpee, Mass. at 8 Steeple Street on Wednesday, September 5th at 6:00 a.m. Area residents once knew the location to be Star Market. Providing growth in the community, this new 4,000 square foot bakery-café will employ up to 50 associates, bakers and managers.
With its identity rooted in handcrafted, freshly-baked, artisan bread, Panera Bread is committed to providing great tasting, quality food that people can trust. Characterized by antibiotic-free chicken, whole grain bread, select organic and all-natural ingredients and a menu with zero grams of added trans fat, Panera’s bakery-cafe selection offers flavorful, wholesome offerings. The menu includes a variety of year-round favorites to complement seasonal items and breads baked fresh daily in each bakery-cafe by skilled bakers. There are intimate seating areas, comfortable chairs, a community table and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
A Neighborhood Approach
“The new bakery-cafe in Mashpee offers a warm and welcoming environment including a three season room as well as a patio with heaters and large glass windows that open up to the outside so customers can enjoy the beautiful weather that the Cape is known for,” said Gregg Godfrey, Joint Venture Area Director, Panera
Bread. “It is an honor to offer the residents of Mashpee and the local surrounding communities a more convenient place to enjoy Panera Bread. We look forward to providing the many business professionals, families and summer vacationers fresh and wholesome food choices paired with the convenient service their busy schedules demand.”
An Active Community Partner
Since Panera Bread was founded, the company and its franchisees have been active participants in the communities in which it does business. As part of Panera’s broader national Operation Dough-Nation® program, which was created in 1992 to formalize Panera’s commitment to community involvement, the new location will join the Mashpee community in giving back through its local Day-End Dough-Nation™ and Community Breadbox™ programs. As part of the local Community Breadbox program, all cash donations made by customers at the new Mashpee bakery-cafe, are matched by Panera Bread and distributed to Feeding America.
At the end of each day, Panera Bread also donates all unsold bread and baked goods to local area hunger relief agencies as part of its local Day-End Dough-Nation program. Collectively, Panera bakery-cafes annually donate more than $100 million worth of unsold bread and baked goods to help people in need.
A full catering menu will be offered at the new bakery-cafe. Available for breakfast, lunch and snacks, Panera Catering is ideal for any group from five to five hundred. Panera Catering emphasizes accuracy and efficiency in delivering the experience of fresh, handcrafted, quality meals to any workplace setting, social event or gathering. In addition, every bakery-cafe has a dedicated Panera Catering Coordinator on site to manage the entire process, from order to pick up or delivery, to ensure customer satisfaction.
The Mashpee Panera Bread will be open Monday-Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. For more information, call Panera Bread at 508-477-4073. Major credit cards are accepted.
