Panera Bread

I am a big fan of Panera Bread. I love the atmosphere, the ambience, and the food, especially the blueberry and french toast bagel! And I’m obviously not the only one! Their business is doing very well. Check out these stats:

Started in 1981 in St. Louis, MO.

While it’s cool to admire the performance of Panera Bread, I think the key takeaway is figuring out how we can do the same thing!

1. Think Ownership

2. Think Networks (Franchising….like Panera)

3. Think Long-Term

4. Think Big!
