Bun in the oven: Another popular Clear Lake area eatery was forced to make way for the Texas Department of Transportation’s expansion of Interstate 45. Panera Bread, a bakery and cafe franchise that had operated at 19305 I-45 since 2005, is among businesses closed by the expansion. Panera Bread, however, plans to move not far away to I-45 at El Dorado Boulevard., just one exit north from its former location.

Not only will the fast-casual eatery return to the area, it will do so in a big way, building the largest Panera Bread in the Houston market, said Keith Isbell, operations partner for Rolling Dough, which owns the franchise. The new store also will offer drive-through service, he said.
