Fifth Third Bancorp announced on Friday, June 28, that Panera Bread will be opening a cincinnati location in the near future. According to Fifth Third, the bakery-café chain has signed an agreement to lease an almost 5,000 square-foot space on Fountain Square. The store will be situated at the corner of Sixth and Vine streets in the northwest area of the Fifth Third Center. William Moran, director of corporate facilities and vice president at Fifth Third Bank, indicated:
“We are pleased to bring another quality tenant on board and welcome Panera Bread to Fountain Square.”
This will be the 20th Panera Bread to open in the Cincinnati area. The bakery-café is expected to bring approximately 65 jobs to the area, including both full-time and part-time positions.
As new businesses move into the Cincinnati area, it is likely that area printing companies will be asked to provide business card printing and stationery printing as the new businesses attempts to establish themselves in a new location. A number of other printing services are likely to be needed as well, such as poster printing and Banner Printing to announce grand openings and promotions once the business opens, ensuring that customers come through the doors.
