Panera Bread says it is adding new jobs to the Tulsa area even though it's closing one of its locations.
Panera says it's closing its store in the 11100 block of East 71st Street this summer and re-locating to a new spot down the street at 71st and Mingo.
It says the new Panera Bread location which opens at the end of June, will include a drive-thru. It will also provide an opportunity for their first Panera catering center in Tulsa.
The company says the move means 20 to 25 new jobs.
Panera is also planning home and office delivery service this fall which it says will add another 75 to 100 new jobs across Tulsa.
