Effingham, Ill – Effingham’s thriving business district is continuing to grow with Panera Bread being added to the Keller Drive Rental Park.
The new location is located near avenue of Midamerica and West Evergreen Ave; it is considered a strong addition to the gentrification of the city.
Alicia Brock, The area operating partner for Panera Bread, expressed how Effingham is a fast growing market reiterating how the business would fit well in the community.
With over 200 customers during the morning rush alone, Brock feels the community is going to welcome them openly as a permanent staple.
Nightly Panera Bread locations across the country give their excess bread, and baked goods to local schools, and charities as a part of their “Day End Dough-Nation” Program.
According to Brock, the new location is already actively seeking an approximate 7 locations from the local area to partner with, and should have a released list within the next week.
Some locations in consideration come from charities, and schools in the county area.
