Panera Bread Restaurants for Sale

BizQuest's Panera Bread franchise listings are hot from the oven!

Panera Bread was born as the St. Louis Bread company in 1987. Within 6 years, it grew to 20 bakery-cafes, many of which had a loyal customer following. In 1999, the company changed its name to Panera and became a national chain. Panera Bread now claims roughly 12% of the $38 billion fast-casual dining market and has become one of the better franchise opportunities in America.

Today, there are 1,800 Panera Bread franchises across 45 states, all of which supply their customers with the finest quality food options available. All leftover bread and baked goods are donated daily to local food banks and shelters as part of the company’s Day-End Dough-Nation initiative. Panera Cares Community Cafes work on an honor system with local residents to ensure everyone eats on a daily basis, regardless of household income.

Forbes names Panera Bread as one of their Top Franchises for the Buck due to its fresh and healthy menu choices, as well as the company's charitable offerings. It also recently won a place on the ICR XChange's list of Best Restaurant Stock Picks. Given the company's continued steady growth and its solid brand recognition, the cost of a Panera Bread franchise is quite reasonable. Buy a Panera franchise today with BizQuest's help, and watch your dough rise!

“THE REAL PROBLEM WITH SMALL BUSINESSES AND PRIVATE COMPANIES IS GETTING MONEY INTO AND OUT OF THEM… HERE’S HOW RAINCATCHER SOLVES THAT PROBLEM, ONCE AND FOR ALL…” DID YOU KNOW THAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE SOME OF THE BEST CREATORS OF CASH FLOW OUT THERE? It’s true. In fact, they are some of the most cash flow efficient investments in the country. However, getting money into and out of them has been a real challenge because there has not been an efficient marketplace for being able to buy and sell them. Private companies have been a totally underserved class of asset. On the one end of the spectrum you have investment banks, who typically help sell companies generally doing $10 MILLION (or more) in earnings. But on the other end of the spectrum, you have really been reduced to working with a local brokerage (with a very limited local, city-wide, scope of prospects) and let’s face it, little more than a glorified Craigslist ad. And this is an issue because many prospective buyers are looking for a business that contains an online component that allows them freedom of not being tied to one place. And if the local broker can only help them with opportunities in the area, it dramatically limits the options of both the potential buyer and seller. And that’s a real problem because the only way to get money in and out of these private companies and small businesses is to either BUY, or SELL them. But as you can see, historically the MARKETPLACE for buying and selling cash-flow businesses has been extremely inefficient, and these opportunities have been extremely difficult to come by. Until now…THINK OF US AS AN ONLINE BUSINESS MATCHMAKER: WE ARE NOT LIMITED BY LOCATION, IN FACT, WE HAVE A GLOBAL REACH. Indeed, here at RAINCATCHER, we’ve created the most efficient marketplace for small to medium sized cash-flow businesses to be bought and sold. And what do we mean by “Raincatcher?” Well, everybody always talks about “rain makers”, but have you ever actually seen someone make it rain? We haven’t. Look… Making it rain is hard. Catching the rain is easy. It seems much easier, (and far more efficient) to simply run around with a large bucket and catch as much rain as you can, doesn’t it? “Catching the rain” is really about capturing the value you’ve created throughout your entrepreneurial career.
