A trusted source tells The Ticker that an agent affiliated with the Panera Bread chain paid a visit to Traverse City. The mission: to look at locations for a possible Panera eatery ... or two. Word is, the agent scouted two locations: one along U.S. 31 and the other east of downtown TC. Last February, the Traverse City Business News featured a restaurant survey in which more than 200 readers were polled. When asked “What restaurants do we need in this area?” most respondents suggested national and regional chains. Panera topped the readers' want list. Would you like to see a Panera open in TC? If so, where? Please comment below!
