You often times see food chains making decisions to update what they serve to attract more customers. That's exactly the plan that Panera Bread has in mind, adding a few different kids of flatbread pizzas to their menu.

According to Food Business News, it's been just over a year since they added a new item. Back in September of 2019, warm grain bowls were added to their menu as the chain took on a new initative to introduce more grains, plants and proteins on its menu. Now, the flatbread pizzas are the latest addition.

"At Panera, baking is at the core of who we are and what we’re known for — we knew that we had all the elements to bring our delicious, hearty flatbreads to life,” said Claes Petersson, chief food and innovation officer at Panera. “With the launch of flatbread pizza, we are looking to redefine the expectation of pizza and carve out a niche for Panera in the pizza category. Our flatbread pizzas encompass the best of what Panera has to offer: clean, delicious ingredients from our pantry on top of oven-baked flatbread that is expertly crafted for our guests.”

The flatbread pizzas are now available at the Panera Bread in New Hartford, located in Consumer Square.
