The Oswego Village Board approved plans for the Oswego Panera Bread to move to a new location at the Jan. 8 board meeting with a unanimous vote.
The Panera Bread is currently situated in the Oswego Commons shopping center in the 2900 block of Route 34.
The new location at Gerry Centennial Plaza will require new construction and will be located in the 1400 block of Douglas Road, directly north of the Buffalo Wild Wings, according to a memo to the board from Village planner Kasey Evans.
Panera plans to move to the new location so that a drive-thru will be available to customers.
The new restaurant will be housed in a just under 11,000-foot three-unit retail building. The other units will be for a potential laundromat with a valet service and an additional retail space.
Panera has operated from the Oswego Commons Shopping Center location since 2002.
