According to an anonymous Aramark employee, the Panera Bread location in Russell House will not open in time for the start of the fall semester.
Construction is still ongoing, with exposed wiring and drywall visible from the outside.
This employee stated that the location should open in late September, but an earlier opening is not impossible.
More information will be posted as it is received.
