Panera Bread


Say goodbye to Panera's Charged Lemonades

The fast-casual chain confirmed the caffeinated drinks will be phased out, but did not specify the timing. The energy drinks have been blamed for two deaths.

The Bottom Line: The two fast-casual restaurant pioneers have diverged over the past five years, as the burrito chain has thrived while Panera hit a wall. Here's why.

Locations of Flynn's Panera Bread units in Seattle, and some Jet's restaurants in Detroit plan to offer drone delivery using the Zipline system.

Cybersecurity site said the company's virtual machines were encrypted by cyber attackers, resulting in the three-day outage. The report cites unnamed sources and internal emails.

The bakery-cafe chain is rolling out a new menu that plays up core menu lines rather than searching for a new breakthrough menu category.

Tech Check: As the industry gets more high-tech, crashes and cyberattacks will become more common. Restaurants should be taking steps to manage their risks.

Panera cafes are open, but digital ordering systems are down, including kiosks in stores. Workers say they have been given no explanation.

An update last week attempts to address lingering questions about what companies would be impacted by the upcoming fast-food wage hike. It looks like Panera Bread is not exempt after all.

The subscription drinks program that was $11.99 per month is now $14.99 per month, a 25% increase.

News analysis: The controversy involving Panera Bread franchisee Greg Flynn may be moot, but the exemption baked into the impending fast-food wage remains unexplained.
