Panera’s executive customer service contacts

Whilst we list executive contacts we recommend that you do not start with the executive contacts and instead go through the companies support channels first. If, and only if, that does not resolve your issue then start by writing to the Primary contact. Tell them the issue and give them a week to respond.  If they don’t respond or refuse to help, write to the next executive shown. If necessary, repeat weekly going up the chain of Executives one at a time.

Do not simply write to the CEO. This could severely limit your ability to resolve your issue.
