Panera T-Creek location closes

Panera Bread in Turkey Creek has closed.

Having been located in the Pinnacle portion of the development since 2006, Panera officials “made the decision to close on the weekend, and we were notified Saturday (April 22) afternoon,” said Pinnacle general manager Darryl Whitehead Monday, April 24.

“It’s our understanding that they are downsizing to the Cedar Bluff location as the term of this lease was scheduled to end April 2023,” he added.

While Panera Bread representatives had worked with Town of Farragut staff and officials last year on possibly relocating the chain to the Village Green shopping center, that deal apparently is dead.

not moving forward, but specific details as to why were not available as of press time.
