Panera Bread Introduces New Plant Based Menu

Panera plant based salad

The new menu, enabled by Panera’s clean pantry and leading digital-ordering platform, makes it even easier for guests to select and easily customize their food choices with the ingredients that best serve their taste and dietary preferences.

Panera is the first national restaurant concept to fully integrate wellness curated menus and specialized items directly into its digital-ordering experience, offering a variety of options in each new menu category.  Each curated menu also includes new salads specially created for Panera by registered dietitian nutritionists. And every Panera salad can be customized from more than 50 ingredients available in the company’s pantry. The new menus include:

Plant Based (Featuring the Ancient Grain Greek Salad created by Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN):
A menu for vegetarians, vegans or those who simply like their veggies. Options feature an abundance of high-quality, clean ingredients, including almonds and quinoa, and fresh produce like romaine, arugula, avocado, citrus and blueberries.

Nutrient-Packed (Featuring the Blueberry and White Balsamic Salad created by Mitzi Dulan, RD): A menu of nutrient-packed meals with the right balance of calories, fat, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber and protein to help fuel guests without over-indulging.

The new Panera curated menus can be easily found within the company’s digital-ordering experience via in-store kiosk, web, or mobile app.  Guests simply select a curated menu to uncover the Panera offerings that meet the criteria for the new categories. Like all of Panera’s menu items, the new menus and the new salads are free from all artificial sweeteners, preservatives, flavors and colors from artificial sources.
