Panera may be axing 30 menu items — but why?


Panera Bread is testing out a streamlined menu with fewer menu items in a “small amount of Panera bakeries” in order to improve convenience for customers and simplify operations for employees, a representative for Panera confirmed to Nation’s Restaurant News via email.

Although the company would not go much further into detail, news of the streamlined menu first reached the public ear via a viral TikTok which has since been made private — allegedly from a Panera employee who claimed approximately 30 menu items were getting the axe from Panera cafes. The TikTok user alleges that items soon to disappear from the Panera menu include the Bistro French Onion Soup, Ten Vegetable Soup, all cold brew drinks, all grain bowls, and several bakery items, including the blueberry scone, butter croissant, and kitchen sink cookie
