New Panera Bread Signs Installed
Construction on actual restaurant not yet under way
Workers installed the signs for the new Panera Bread to be built on Graham Road in the former Big Boy location Monday.
In December, Stow City Council unanimously approved plans for the second Panera Bread location. The eatery already has a restaurant on Kent Road.
The new 8,823-square-foot Panera will be located at 1063 Graham Road, where the long vacant Big Boy restaurant was demolished in November.
Stow Planning Director Rob Kurtz said a permit application has been submitted and construction plans are currently being reviewed for the new building by the city.
