Panera Bread May Be a Few Months Away
Twinsburg Planning Director Larry Finch said the popular chain could be up and running soon.
Panera Bread advocates might not have to wait too long for the restaurant to be baking in Twinsburg.
Planning Director Larry Finch said Panera is moving forward with plans to occupy multiple spaces in Town Center Plaza on Darrow Road. They will be the south end of the building, by near Giant Eagle.
There is no "apparent date" because no contract for the interior modifications has been on file, but Finch expects it to happen soon.
"They're at least a month or two from being open," Finch said.
Paving improvements were made several weeks ago to meet certain requirements for Panera to move into the facility.
Two signs have been posted on the property to announce the new arrival also.
Because they would occupy an existing space, the process should move much quicker.
There won't be a need to go before city council or planning commission so they just need to do the renovations, get proper inspections and file for an occupancy permit once it's done.
