ST. LOUIS, June 10, 2024 –This Father's Day, Panera Bread is turning groans into grins with a sweepstakes that celebrates the one and only dad joke.

Dads are known for their love, support, and, of course, their legendary sense of humor (or lack thereof). To honor these champions of the pun, Panera Bread is asking fans to engage on social media and share their best (or worst) dad jokes for a chance to win a Panera gift card to treat your dad starting June 10th at noon ET*.

Here's how to enter:

  • Follow @PaneraBread on Instagram and wait for the Father's Day post to go live on June 10th at noon ET.
  • Unleash your inner dad (or inner child who groans at dad jokes) by liking and commenting – while you’re at it, give us your best dad joke.
  • The prize? 50 winners will receive a $25 Panera Bread gift card towards your Panera faves, like a Father’s Day breakfast Family Feast for four.

Want to make Dad’s day even better? Panera offers Panera's Family Feast value meals that are family-sized meals made to feed a family of four at a great value. Father’s Day brunch is easy with options including the Breakfast Sandwich Feast of 4 sandwiches for $15.99 (plus tax) or the Baked Goods Feast featuring six Panera pastries priced at $16.99 (plus tax) for an easy celebratory meal (price may vary by cafe; delivery price higher).

And, for a limited time this month, get a gift for dad and a little gift for yourself too! Panera is celebrating Dads & Grads from June 5th through June 30th, where guests can earn a $5 bonus card for every $25 in gift cards purchased online**.

About Panera Bread

Our first bakery-cafe opened in 1987, founded with a secret sourdough starter and the belief that the best part of bread is sharing it. That vision led to the invention of the Fast Casual category with Panera at the forefront, serving as America’s kitchen table centered around our delicious menu of chef-curated recipes that are crafted with care by our team members. We make food that we are proud to serve our own families, from crave-worthy soups, salads and sandwiches to mac and cheese and sweets. Each recipe is filled with ingredients we feel good about and none of those we don’t because we are committed to serving our guests food that feels good in the moment and long after. While our company is now nearly 2,200 bakery-cafes strong, our values and belief in the lasting power of a great meal remain as strong as ever. We spend each day filling bellies, building empowered teams and inspiring communities. Nothing beats breaking bread together.

As of May 28, 2024, there were 2,182 bakery-cafes, company and franchise, in 48 states and Washington D.C., and in Ontario, Canada, operating under the Panera Bread® or Saint Louis Bread Co.® names. Panera Bread is part of Panera Brands, one of the largest fast casual restaurant companies in the U.S., comprised of Panera Bread®, Caribou Coffee® and Einstein Bros.® Bagels.
