Here’s how delivery works:

  • Single orders can be delivered within 8 minutes of the delivery café.
  • Delivery charge is $3.
  • Minimum order is $5.
  • Delivery orders must be made by credit card through the Panera Bread app or panerabread.com.
  • Delivery service hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Orders can be placed between 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

The company’s Rapid Pick Up option, which allows customers to place pick-up orders online or via the Panera Bread app, is available at every Panera Bread cafe in the region.

A new Mason-Kings Mills Panera will open Nov. 7 with fast-lane kiosks that allow customers to place their in-cafe order without visiting a cashier, the company announced.

Covelli Enterprises is hiring for the Mason-Kings Mills cafe and is also seeking drivers at the 12 cafes with delivery service. Applications are being taken in-cafe or online at panerabread.jobs.
