Panera Bread Top Workplace in Cincinnati

In conjunction with my website, Lunch It Punch It, I’m celebrating Panera Bread as a top workplace in Cincinnati with a giveaway for a $25 gift card. I love this quote from the local franchise President, that he recognizes his employees.

“Celebrating our Top Workplaces achievement wouldn’t be nearly as gratifying without the dedication and support of our Cincinnati bakery-cafe team members,” said Craig Flom, President, Breads of the World, LLC, franchisee of Panera Bread in Southwest Ohio. “We are proud of the dedicated Cincinnati employees that uphold our core values, serve our customers each day, and truly make our business great.”

You might be wondering how do I reconcile eating delicious bread while working out. Moderation. And most of my gym efforts are to combat stationary butt at desk with restless leg syndrome (I made that up, but it’s real, trust me) and to keep my heart strong.

Beyond liking places that have happy employees, which make for happy customer experiences, I like places that offer an option for two choices. With Panera’s Pick Two, I usually eat one and save one.


Last time, I picked Thai salad and flatbread, which was a little hot for me, but they did not skimp on the sauce either. I had to eat the baguette to temper my mouth and yes I always pick the bread over an apple or chips. It’s bread! The next day, it was such a delight to open my lunch bag and find a delicious salad along with my usual apple. I look for to an upcoming My Panera reward for a salad because I hope to pick two salads instead of just my usual Thai Chicken Salad.

You can enter to win $25 from Panera Bread by leaving a comment of who you would treat to lunch there. For additional entries, get social with either of my blogs.

    I go every Friday with my parents and they
    Always treat. My dad loves to pay for
    Everything. Being from a huge family, i
    Consider it my one on one time with them.
    Would love to treat them!
