Panera Bread remains a consumer favorite in its category as it continues to innovate its menu and ramp up convenience. The chain plans to add a new, plant-based menu item to every category by the end of 2021. And it has expanded the reach of its online ordering network, allowing customers who use a variety of third-party services to request delivery via a Panera employee.
