Panera Bread® franchisee, Doherty Enterprises, Inc., announced today the September 25th grand opening of its newly relocated Panera Bread bakery-cafe at 403-1 Commack Road in Deer Park, Long Island. The restaurant had previously been located at 1258 Deer Park Avenue.

“A terrific benefit of our new Deer Park location is it now allows us to offer our guests the convenience of drive-thru service,” said Tim Doherty, president and chief operating officer of Doherty Enterprises Inc., a franchisee of Panera Bread. “We love the people in this community, and our team is excited to provide residents a new space and more ways to enjoy our fresh-baked wholesome selections.”

As part of the grand opening celebration on September 25th, the first 50 customers who visit the Panera Bread bakery-cafe at its new location can receive free baguettes for a year*. (See store for details).

And to help welcome Panera Bread to the neighborhood, Melissa D. Mohan, president of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce, will be in part of a special “Baguette Breaking” ceremony at 10:30 am.

Founded in 1987, Panera Bread is committed to serving clean food without artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, or colors from artificial sources. The company is always finding new ways to make every soup, salad, sandwich, and sweet bakery treat at Panera the best (and cleanest) it can be.

“In addition to drive-through, Panera has expanded its other off-premise and to-go options for customers, and guests can now order their Panera favorites via, Rapid Pick-Up® and Delivery on the Panera App and Website,” explained Doherty. “It’s just a few of the many ways we continue to make dining at Panera more convenient for our guests. We hope everyone in the area stops by to see what we have to offer.”
