NORMAN — Panera Bread located at 2200 W. Main Street in Norman has a special reason to celebrate. This bakery-café added a drive-thru to the existing location and wants to celebrate with their guests and thank them for their patience during construction.

The addition of the drive-thru will make it more convenient for guests to get their favorite morning coffee and bagel or to pick up dinner for the family on their way home from work.

The Grand Opening of the new drive-thru will be Tuesday. The café will celebrate with giveaways throughout opening day. Travel Mugs with a $5 Panera Gift Card will be given away to the first 50 people through the drive thru on opening morning. In addition, the first 50 people through the drive thru starting at 11:00 a.m. on opening day will receive a free, crimson Panera Bread, long-sleeved, T-shirt.

The festivities continue through the week with free cookies given away during lunch on Feb. 20 and free French Baguettes during dinner on Feb. 21. All of the giveaways are only for guests utilizing the new drive thru and are while supplies last.
