Location of Panera Bread coming to Abilene remains a mystery

The location of the Panera Bread coming to Abilene remains a mystery.

On Thursday, KTXS reported it would be built next to the new Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen in the Shops at Abilene Village.

That report was based on our conversation with the City of Abilene.

However, the city now says we misinterpreted their response.

No permit or site plan has been filed.

Last month we reported that Panera is opening two new locations in Texas -- a second store in Lubbock and then one in Abilene.

Panera was founded in 1987 and has more than 2,000 locations, 97 of them in Texas alone.
