Panera Pins Profit Future On Success Of Technology Initiatives

October 30, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Panera Bread is determined to boost its sagging profit margins by using technology to streamline ordering, payment and other processes. The keystone of the cost-cutting plan is converting all of its bakeries to the Panera 2.0 initiative – only 100 of its 400 shops have yet to adapt – and so far customer response to rapid pick-up service, delivery to tables, fast-lane kiosks, customizable ordering and mobile payment options, has been positive. Though the company’s sales rose in the third quarter, profit dropped 17 percent because of escalating costs.
