Panera has announced the launch of Panera Grocery, a new service enabling guests to purchase high-demand pantry items such as milk, bread and fresh produce alongside their favorite Panera soup, salad or sandwich.
Leveraging the Panera supply network of clean ingredients, Panera Grocery is easily ordered on the Panera app or website and is available via contactless delivery, Rapid Pick-Up®, Drive-Up and Drive-Thru, as well as through contact-free delivery via Grubhub.
As with all of Panera’s offerings, Panera Grocery items are clean – free of artificial preservatives, flavors, sweeteners and colors from artificial sources. Panera Grocery is a separate, ingredients-based service operated out of Panera bakery-cafes.
“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. 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,” said Niren Chaudhary, Panera CEO.
Panera Grocery is easily ordered alongside Panera meal at participating cafes nationwide, by selecting “Panera Grocery” in the Panera app or on the website, or finding the “Panera Grocery” items on Grubhub, and adding the items to the order. For MyPanera members, Panera Grocery orders will serve as a visit toward future MyPanera rewards.
Items currently available on Panera Grocery include:
- Freshly Baked Breads and Bagels
- Milk & Dairy
- Fresh Produce
Additionally, Panera at Home retail products are available anywhere you shop for groceries.
Panera continues to take steps to safely serve communities during these trying times, and Panera Grocery is just one of many offerings Panera has created to help people. These include:
- Serving our guests via only a “To-Go” model in all company cafes;
- New “Drive-Up” contactless curbside service;
- Contactless Delivery—meals left at customer’s front door, front desk or location of choice;
- Mindful Packaging, all to-go orders sealed for added protection;
- Enhanced, rigorous cleaning and sanitization procedures in bakery-cafes.
