Panera Bread has plans to open a new bakery-café in Tinley Park before the end of 2014. The new 4,200-square-foot location will be located in Brookside Marketplace, at 7204 W. 191st St.
The addition is one of several newcomers to Brookside— including a TJ Maxx which recently opened in space formerly occupied by Lane Bryant.
Panera touts its handcrafted, freshly baked, artisan bread, coupled with antibiotic-free chicken, whole grain bread, select organic and all-natural ingredients and a menu with zero grams added trans fat, according to a release from the company.
“We look forward to opening a new bakery-cafe in such a vital community, said Mike Hamra, President & CEO of Hamra Enterprises. "Our bakery-cafes have been embraced by many surrounding communities in Chicagoland over the past 15 years, and we look forward to sharing the Panera warmth in Tinley Park.”
More to come.
