Panera Bread’s Anti-Gun Stance Receives Big Backlash

Earlier this month, Panera Bread joined the ranks of places like Target, who have asked law abiding citizens to leave their guns at home. They believe that this will create a warmer, friendlier and safer environment for their customers. Ron Shaich’s, CEO of Panera Bread, read:

“Within our company, we strive to create Panera Warmth. This warmth means bakery-cafes where customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome.

Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.”
