BECKLEY - Panera Bread in Beckley was officially recognized by the city Tuesday.

The Beckley-Raleigh Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony outside of the café. Panera Bread has been open for two weeks and officials said the positive reception has blown away their expectations.

Regional Marketing Coordinator Emily Lutz said the workers are happy to be serving people in the area. “We are thrilled once again to be able to open a new cafe and see how welcoming the local community is.”

Lutz said any unsold baked goods are donated to local hunger relief organizations and food banks.
