Menu calorie counts

10 Mar, 2010

Panera announces it will be the first national chain to voluntarily post calorie information at all of its company-owned restaurants. The calorie counts will be posted by 24 March, 2010, at all 585 company-owned stores with the expectation that its franchises will eventually follow suit, bringing the total to 1,380 stores. This goal puts them ahead of Yum Brands – parent of KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Long John Silvers, and A&W All-American Food – who committed to post calorie counts on its menu boards by January 1, 2011.
