A new location of Panera Bread, formerly Denny’s, takes shape on Sept. 26 in Crossroads Commons. The new store is expected to open for business on Oct. 31.
Plan commissioners in Plover gave unanimous approval for a site plan in March. Additions to the property include an outdoor seating area, a drive-up lane and drive-thru window and an additional parking lot entry.
Village leaders announced a new owner had purchased the building last December. Construction on the property began mid-June.
Panera Bread offers counter-service bakery, sandwiches, salads, soups and bread at locations across the nation, with a local presence in Wausau.
The property had previously been home to Denny’s, and before that Husdon’s Classic Grill.
