Panera Bread of Southeastern Michigan will officially open its first drive-thru in Michigan on Tuesday, May 19 at 5:30 a.m. at the Roseville bakery-cafe, located at 31960 Gratiot Ave.

Panera is asking the community to celebrate the drive-thru grand opening by “driving thru for a cause” and donating $1 to support the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Roseville, taking place June 6-7 at Veterans Memorial Park in Roseville.

Anyone who donates $1 on May 19 will receive a free small beverage or coffee courtesy of Panera Bread. “We chose Panera’s Roseville bakery-cafe as Michigan’s first drive-thru location because we felt confident it could accommodate a drive-thru and we want to provide more convenience to the many customers who visit this location,” said Lee Carmona, area director for Panera Bread of the Great Lakes Region.

“We hope everyone will join us in celebrating this new drive-thru venture by stopping by and donating $1 to support Relay For Life of Roseville.”

I love Panera Bread and this is a great thing to try out in Michigan. Maybe more stores will wind up doing it. I hope it works out well for them.
