As for specials and deals on the 4th of July this year, it doesn’t look like Panera Bread has anything super special to celebrate the holiday, other than the fact that the store is staying open. However, it is always worth it to check out their website daily, to see if they are offering any new specials. We also recommend giving them a call to double check with your closest restaurant, just in case they offer something some local specials that the website doesn’t state.
If chain restaurants and fast food isn’t not your thing and you’re still looking for something to eat, make sure to check out some of the local, independent restaurants or mom-and-pop diners in your community.
From all of us here at Heavy, have a safe time celebrating the 4th of July weekend!
