Along with their standard menu choices, Panera Bread is now offering Panera Grocery, which sells high-demand food basics to the general public. The service can be ordered through the Panera app or website and is available for Rapid Pick-Up, contactless delivery, drive-up, or drive-through.

"From limited choices on grocery shelves to the growing need to limit the number of trips outside of the home, it is an incredibly stressful time when it comes to putting wholesome food on the table, and we knew Panera could help,” said Niren Chaudhary, Panera CEO, in a press release. “With this new service we can help deliver good food and fresh ingredients from our pantry to yours, helping provide better access to essential items that are increasingly harder to come by.”

Participating cafes will be offering the following:

Freshly Baked Breads and Bagels

  • Classic White Loaf
  • Whole Grain Pan Loaf
  • French Baguette
  • Bagel Packs

Milk and Dairy

  • Skim Milk (gallon)
  • 2% Milk (gallon)
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Yogurt Tubes
  • Plain Cream Cheese

Fresh Produce

  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Blueberries
  • Red Grapes
  • Vine Ripe Tomatoes

Panera Bread and Panera Grocery orders don't need to be separate, so you can easily stock up on essentials while ordering some soup, salad, or sandwiches for the whole family. To find a participating location near you, simply select "Panera Grocery" in the Panera app or website, or find "Panera Grocery" items on Gubhub and add them to your order.
