The growth of the Treasure Valley over the last few years has been incredible, and with new hotels, and businesses in downtown, new restaurants are coming as well.  Welcome Panera.

The newest Boise region Panera plans to be serving customers this summer after breaking ground in the last couple weeks.  The new store will be at the corner of Myrtle and 11th, part of the Pioneer Crossing development.

Other businesses joining the development include the new Hilton Garden Inn, and a new parking structure that houses the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, and a future office building.

Panera first came to the Treasure Valley in Nampa in 2015, then expanded to Meridian, and last year, opened the Boise location near Boise Towne Square Mall.  This downtown location will continue their eastward expansion across the Treasure Valley, and offer a welcome addition to fast-casual dining downtown.
