Panera Bread coming to Evansville in 2019

A Panera Bread will be coming to Evansville's west side next year.

According to our media partner, Courier and Press, St. Louis-based Panera Bread anticipates to have the west side location open in the spring.

It will be located at 5201 Pearl Drive - the former Bob Evans location.

In October 2017, Bob Evans closed, and the building was recently torn down.

Panera Bread signed a lease and has all of the permits needed to build at the site.

Panera Bread's other Evansville locations are on North Burkhardt Road and at Gateway Hospital.
