April 2018 Partner of the Month: Panera Bread
Panera Bread has been selected as the Columbia Chamber’s April Partner of the Month for their customer dedication and for their support and sponsorships of Chamber events.
During 2017, Panera Bread sped up their customer experience by adding drive-thru, Rapid Pick-Up, and delivery. They continually shape their business around their customers’ needs. Panera Bread is a part of Covelli Enterprises and helps supports Covelli Cares, a foundation that supports local charities in the neighborhoods that each business serves. Covelli Cares gives $32 million annually to charitable causes and 100% of all donations benefit their non-profit partners.
Panera Bread consistently attends, supports, and sponsors Chamber events. They were a sponsor for the 2017 Gala and sponsor some of the Chamber’s Diplomats meetings. The Chamber is very excited that Panera Bread will be the food sponsor for the May Partner Engagement at BMW on Killian Rd.
The Partner of the Month spotlights Chamber Partners who have shown great efforts in assisting the Chamber’s mission to create and promote an environment where businesses can flourish in the region.
The Partner of the Month is chosen based on community involvement, local leadership efforts and utilization of Chamber Partnership. For a full list of requirements and benefits, or to nominate a current Chamber Partner, fill out form here.
