WICHITA — It may not have happened by spring as he hoped, but Randy Simon is now about to add a drive-through at his Panera Bread at 1605 N. Rock Road.
The restaurant is going to close from Monday until July 22 to make the addition along with interior remodeling.
Derby is the only other Wichita-area Panera with a drive-through so far.
Simon says he's in the process of submitting plans to do a drive-through at the Panera at Taft and Ridge.
He's just finished remodeling the Panera near Central and Hillside, which wasn't able to have a drive-through.
"We just were not able to work the necessary arrangemetns out with Walgreens," Simon says.
