Soup, salad and sandwich: From bakery-cafe to you

SILVERDALE — Panera Bread is now offering home and office delivery of its lunch menu in the Silverdale area.

Panera delivery orders can be placed up to two weeks in advance on PaneraBread.com or via the Panera Bread mobile app, on which customers can also store their order history and credit card information. These ordering platforms integrate with the MyPanera® loyalty program, allowing customers to redeem their rewards via mobile.

“We’re excited to offer our guests in Silverdale this new convenience,” Pan American Group marketing director Myrna Schultz said in an announcement of the program. “Panera delivery makes it easy to enjoy your favorite soup, salad or sandwich at your home or office on days when it’s not convenient to make it into a bakery-cafe.”

For those on the go, another ordering option called Rapid Pick-Up enables guests in Silverdale to place an online or mobile order from their office, car, work or home — again, up to two weeks in advance — and pick up their food at a pre-determined time without waiting in line. Silverdale-area bakery-cafes are equipped with “to go” pick-up areas, featuring dedicated seating, an order-status monitor providing real-time information as orders are prepared and completed, and shelf space, all to facilitate easy pick up.

Restaurants will deliver within an eight-minute radius of the location, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday to Friday; a $5 order minimum and $3 delivery service fee will apply.

Pan American Group owns 130 bakery cafes in Washington, California, Kansas, Missouri, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and is the second-largest Panera Bread franchisee in the U.S. Pan American Group is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Flynn Restaurant Group LP, which in turn operates more than 840 restaurants and employs 38,000 people in 28 states.
