Panera is now offering delivery service in the Hartford area.
If you are within a designated eight-minute radius of a local café, you’re in luck.
You can place an order up to two weeks in advance on PaneraBread.com or through the Panera Bread mobile app and get anything from the lunch and dinner menu with a $5 order minimum and $3 delivery service fee -- in most markets.
From May 8 to May 31, Panera will donate $7.50 to Meals on Wheels America for each completed delivery order from participating bakery-cafes in Connecticut -- for a min donation of $10,000 up to a max donation of $15,000.
A news release from Panera Bread said the company expects to add more than 10,000 new in-cafe and delivery driver jobs system-wide by the end of 2017 while expanding delivery service to 35 to 40 percent of its cafes by year end.
