ABOUT AU BON PAIN (from Wikipedia)
Au Bon Pain (French pronunciation: [o bɔ̃ pɛ̃], meaning “at (or to) the Good Bread”) is an American fast-casual bakery and café chain headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.
As of 2014, there were 243 cafés in the United States, including 135 company-owned locations and 108 franchise locations, along with many international locations in India and Thailand. Most of the locations in the Northeastern United States, Mid-Atlantic States, and Chicago Metropolitan Area are company-owned, while international locations, such as the locations featured in Macy’s and Walmart, are typically franchised. Detroit, Boston, New York City, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Chicago are all home to numerous Au Bon Pain locations. Many Au Bon Pain cafés have been established throughout the United States in numerous airports, train stations, shopping centers, hospitals, urban business districts in cities, and universities.
On November 8, 2017, Panera Bread announced the acquisition of Au Bon Pain, which had split off from Panera in 1999 after being created in 1981. Following the deal, Ron Shaich stepped down as the Au Bon Pain’s chief executive, to be succeed by Blaine Hurst, Panera’s president
Au Bon Pain focuses on serving baked goods (focusing on fresh-baked bread, pastries, croissants, and bagels), tea, coffee and espresso beverages, breakfast foods (such as egg sandwiches), and lunch items such as soup, salads, and sandwiches. In recent years, the chain has undergone a brand identity upgrade that has incorporated new colors, design, and imagery. In 2014, Au Bon Pain hired Katherine See as Executive Chef.
In 2015, Au Bon Pain was ranked the healthiest United States chain restaurant by Grellin Grade. Au Bon Pain has also been recognized by Eat This, Not That for “an unrivaled standard of nutritional transparency”.
