Panera Bread, 631 Promenade Place Suite 16: April 2020   1 comment

Posted at 12:45 am in closing



I first wrote about this place back in 2007 in one of the earliest posts on this site. At the time, I was noting that it had ceased to be an Atlanta Bread Company. At some point after that, Panera moved in.

I ate there a number of times over the years, and considered it fairly well managed, especially compared to some of the other local locations, but looking at Yelp suggests it had begun to slip some lately.

The last reviews seem to be from the early April timeframe, which would put it during the current crisis. The door sign does not give that as a cause, just noting that they have "relocated" to Killian Road. Perhaps that was the plan all along. Certainly Sandhill is not a hot location now, especially in comparison to that area. In point of fact, I have eaten at the Killian location, and while it is more "modern", if that is the future direction for Panera, I really did not care for it.

  1. I don't want to come across all "doom n gloom" over here but, I wouldn't be surprised if more Panera locations were on the chopping block.

    Several locations (Harbison is a good example) have had staffing issues and high turn over, inconsistent food, and inconsistent customer service. All that plus the recent pandemic, and I'd bet dollars to donuts there will be more locations going away in the near future.
