Panera Bread to open in Clarmont’s spot in Brewery District


The many months of speculation are over: Panera Bread will replace the Clarmont in the Brewery District.

Warren-based Covelli Enterprises, the nation’s largest franchisee of Panera, confirmed Tuesday, July 16, it was indeed moving forward with plans to convert the 5,224-square-foot space formerly home to the Clarmont into the fast-casual restaurant concept.

The Clarmont, 684 S. High St., closed in January 2012 after 65 years in business.
