Panera Bread Opens at UMW

Campus Dining is pleased to announce that Panera Bread will open in the University Center on Monday, January 13. This new venue will offer most of Panera Bread’s standard menu, and all ingredients will be 100% “clean” – no artificial flavors, colors or additives. We know you are going to love the quality and variety of our menu items.

The Campus Dining team has been working hard over the winter break to finish construction of the restaurant and hire and train staff in time to open for service at the start of the spring semester. There are more than 30 people on UMW’s Panera Bread team, and most of them are new to our Campus Dining operation. New internet and point of sale technical systems and equipment are also being introduced in this operation, so we ask for your patience as our staff completes their training and we work out any “bugs” in the technical systems.

Serving hours at Panera Bread will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. M-F and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Menus and nutritional information will be available by January 13 on the Dining website: UMW.SodexoMyWay.com. For additional information contact Campus Dining at 540-654-2165 or e-mail Dining@UMW.edu.
