Unlock Panera Bread's Secret 'Power Menu'

February 20, 2013

Since most restaurants are pushing their "healthy" menus, Panera Bread is taking a different approach. After a successful test run in New York last year, Panera has launched six healthy "off-the-menu" options, two for breakfast and four lunch/dinner combos, all high in protein and low in carbs (Panera attempted to limit the processed carbs used in each).

Nobody is sure why the restaurant chain is keeping the menu under wraps, but Panera's "Power Menu" has been available nationwide since Jan. 2. There is not a single mention of the "off-the-menu" items in the restaurant, so we were a bit hesitant about ordering one during a test run. However, the cashier immediately understood our hushed request and cheerfully handed us a laminated "Power Menu."
