Panera Bread Plans to Open 7 Restaurants in Idaho Next Year
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Panera Bread representative says the company will be opening seven new restaurants in Idaho by early next year.
The Idaho Statesman reports that the bakery chain says it will have stores in Boise, Nampa, Twin Falls, Idaho Falls and Hayden. The representative also says the company will add locations in Meridian in December and Chubbuck by early 2016.
The Nampa restaurant is already open. City records show that the Boise location will be about 5,000 square feet and have a drive-through window. The move into Idaho involves company-run stores rather than franchises.
