In November 2016 Covelli Enterprises acquired 22 Panera Bread locations in South Carolina and Georgia. Locations in South Carolina include Myrtle Beach, Aiken, Bluffton, Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Hilton Head Island, Lexington, and Summerville, while locations in Georgia include Augusta, Evans, Hinesville, Pooler, Savannah, and Streetsboro. The company, which now employs nearly 35,000 people and operates 300 Panera Bread bakery-cafés, has plans for expansion in the region.
Covelli’s first Myrtle Beach café broke company sales records. The company, known for its philanthropy, donated more than $28 million in 2016 alone to local non-profit organizations and hunger relief agencies in all markets. Covelli maintains a strong dedication to supporting organizations locally in all areas of the state, ensuring they give back to the communities who support each of their café locations.
