Panera Bread announced a next-generation store redesign, featuring elements that highlight both digital convenience and in-store dining, including a double drive-thru with a dedicated pickup lane, and contactless ordering and dine-in with updated kiosks.

KFC sees the potential to triple in size in the coming years, especially in overseas markets, the Yum Brands fried chicken chain revealed in a Yum Global Investor Day Tuesday. This growth trajectory could yield more than the projected 4% annual unit growth for Yum. 

Also, after reintroducing the fan-favorite menu item in March, Taco Bell has removed the Quesalupa from its menu after teasing a late-May removal of the limited-time offer. The item has been slowly phased out of menus across the country this week with no official announcement.
