New Panera Bread with drive-thru coming to Columbia

Bread bowls, salads, and coffee- oh my! A brand new Panera Bread with a drive-thru is coming to Columbia this week.

The new bakery-cafe will be located at 1321 Roberts Branch Parkway off Killian Road. Don’t miss special offers at the Grand Opening on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 6 a.m.

The first 50 dine-in customers will receive Free You-Pick-Twos for a year. But if you’re up bright and early for offers, there’s more where that came from!

The first 500 customers through the drive-thru will receive a free Panera car coaster stone. Starting at 10 a.m., the first 500 customers will receive a free coffee travel mug and two weeks of free coffee refills.

A new Panera will be opening in Columbia.

But the deals aren’t limited to the Grand Opening day.

On Wednesday, Jan. 16, customers will also receive a $5 gift card with the purchase of a You-Pick-Two to use on future visits. 

Starting at 6 a.m., the first 500 customers through the drive-thru receive a free Panera pop socket.  And on Jan. 17, receive a free pastry with the purchase of a pastry (limit of 3 pastries per transaction.)

You may think that the drive-thru is the best part of this new location, but the kiosk ordering deserves some cool points too. The new cafe will also offer delivery within an eight-mile radius.

Delivery requires a minimum order of $5 with the addition of a $3 cover charge.

Starting on Jan. 15, customers can receive 50% off a small order delivery or rapid pick up order when they enter the code KILLIAN online at checkout.

Enjoy, Midlands!
