Today, Panera advertises its distinctive flavor mainly through the use of billboards, targeting a hungry audience caught on the road and desperate for something filling, delicious, and healthy.

Furthermore, as 2016, Panera operated and franchised over two thousand stores throughout the U.S. as well as few stores in Canada (Panera Bread Company [PBC], 2017).

In which Panera Bread attempted to enact a clause in Panera's contract with the White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, they had tried to stop the opening of a Qdoba Mexican Grill. The statement offered that Panera would be the only sandwich shop in the shopping center. Panera had tried to argue that burritos are sandwiches. Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke ruled against Panera, stating that, "A sandwich is not commonly understood to include burritos, tacos and quesadillas, which are typically made with a single tortilla and stuffed with a choice filling of meat, rice, and beans."

Michael persuaded me into agreeing with his argument by talking about how people shouldn’t eat anything their great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food and avoid food products containing ingredients that are unpronounceable, lists more than five, and contains high fructose corn syrup. He opened my eyes to information I wouldn’t have thought about or researched myself. He got into depth about a type of Sara Lee bread that contains way more ingredients than needed to make the bread, including high fructose corn syrup that isn’t good for you.
