I like Panera. I’ve been thinking of them lately as an always happy customer. First they made great food but they were crowded so they created an App where I can preorder my lunch, walk past the line, grab my bag and leave in 30 seconds. Then they added delivery. And touch pads so you can order while in line.

The Panera near us (the next town about 40 miles away) closed down. We wondered why, they were always full at lunchtime. Maybe they closed that store and opened a bigger one a block or two away?

Your tale of quick ordering is interesting. All those folks marching for $15/hr didn't realize that most of the jobs would be replaced by an app or an ordering kiosk.
