Island Park, NY (October 7, 2013) ― On Monday, October 14, Panera Bread will open in Island Park’s Barnum Landing Shopping Center. To jumpstart its goal of community involvement, the bakery-cafe is pledging 10% of its first day sales to the Long Beach, Island Park and Oceanside Hurricane Relief Funds.
“This area was definitely one of the hardest hit during hurricane Sandy and now, nearly a year later, there’s still much work to be done to restore homes and get the community up and running,” says Greg George, Vice President of Operations for Panera. “We are committed to helping the communities we serve and we look forward to making a positive difference.”
Starting Monday, October 14, Panera Bread will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7AM to 10PM Monday through Saturday and 7AM to 9PM on Sunday.
