Construction equipment was seen on Friday at the future site of Panera Bread in Plover.
The site plan, which was approved by village leaders in March, includes adding an outdoor seating area, a drive-up lane and drive-thru window and an additional parking lot entry.
The restaurant plans to open by November, according to information provided by Panera to the village.
Village leaders announced a new owner had purchased the building last December, but were unable to announce which business until March.
Panera Bread offers counter-service bakery, sandwiches, salads, soups and bread at locations across the nation, with a local presence in Wausau.
The property, located at 1250 Commerce Place, had previously been home to Denny’s, and before that Husdon’s Classic Grill.
