Panera Bread Co. has reopened a downtown Clayton location as a nonprofit where customers can pay what they can afford. [...]
The café, which reopened Sunday as a nonprofit, has cashiers who provide receipts with suggested prices and direct customers to the store’s five donation boxes. The menu is the same, except for the day-old baked goods brought in from sister stores in the area.
The first day was a success, and they’re planning on opening similar locations elsewhere in the country, but won’t say where yet.
