Bakery Market Manager
Mike oversees the training and promoting within the baking team, a role which is punctuated by the development of both self and team. Through leadership and support we must identify those who want to be more than a baker; they want to train, to mold new bakers into the artisan experts we require. We maintain the highest standard of product quality through training to ensure every guest has an extraordinary Panera experience. Mike has been with Panera Bread since 2004 and is a self-taught from scratch baker. Work ethic, loyalty, dedication, and effectiveness can all be traced to those days learning the trade and honing skills under the guidance of his dad. Now a father himself, he hopes to nurture his children in the same way, with love and a respect for hard, honest work, which in and of itself is a personal reward. He will always have a loaf of bread in every arm, or a soft roll at least.
