Dupont Circle Panera will likely Shut Down Soon according to an employee; “Le Pain Quotidien filed for bankruptcy protection”

1350 Connecticut Avenue, NW

Update: thanks to Ian for sending the photo above confirming Panera Dupont has permanently closed.

A reader reports:

“I am (was) an employee at the Dupont Circle Panera. The one right across from Krispy Kreme! I just got a call from my manager that the store can’t survive any longer, and it will be shutting down. I didn’t receive an exact date as to when operations will be 100% offline. Up until this point they’ve been working with a skeleton crew of a manager and one single employee.”

And thanks to Denis for sending something to keep an eye on from the Wall Street Journal:

“The U.S. division of bakery chain Le Pain Quotidien filed for bankruptcy protection as pandemic restrictions continue to wreak havoc on fast-casual dining chains.”
