Panera Bread open in Downtown Arlington

Panera Bread, which has over 2,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, has opened its newest location in the heart of Downtown Arlington. 

True to its corporate mantra, Panera Bread in UT Arlington's College Park District boasts a menu that's completely void of artificial preservatives, flavors or sweeteners and colors from artificial sources. Menu items include sandwiches, soups, salads, pastas, and fresh-baked breads, desserts and pastries.

“We’re excited to see Downtown Arlington continue to attract restaurants and other businesses that provide valuable services to our Downtown workers, college students, visitors to our vibrant Cultural District, and the increasing number of residents who are making their homes in the heart of our city,” said Bruce Payne, Economic Development Manager for the City of Arlington, in a recent news release.

While Panera Bread is located on the edge of campus, it's open and easily accessible to the entire community. Free parking is available to anyone visiting the 20-acre, mixed-use development, which also includes Pie Five Pizza Co., Texadelphia, Starbucks, Bombay Chopsticks, Texas Trust Credit Union, the UTA Bookstore, College Park Center and the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center.
