Panera Bread Settlement

Panera Bread is in a sticky situation! The company is facing a class action settlement.


If you have made a delivery order on the Panera app or website, you could be eligible to get money or food vouchers!

Panera reached an agreement to settle allegations from three different lawsuits. Yikes!

Between October 1st, 2020, and August 31st, 2021, the lawsuits accused Panera's "representation of its delivery fees and menu prices" as being "false or misleading."

The settlement website also shared that Panera has denied the alleged issue but has agreed to the settlement.


It seems to avoid the costs associated with the lawsuits. That makes sense.
