Panera Bread Employee Fired After Posting Video on How They Make Mac-N-Cheese

Ooopsie. An employee of fast food restaurant Panera Bread was fired after posting a video “exposing how the eatery makes its mac-n-cheese dish.

The employee originally posted the clip to the video-sharing app TikTok, but it was also on Twitter and earned nearly ten million views.

The video shows Panera employees preparing a pre-cooked plastic bag of man-n-cheese clearly showing that the restaurant does not make its mac-n-cheese fresh in the shop, but instead serves a pre-made mixture of the dish.

But it appears that Panera was not amused by the “expose.”

The employee admitted that she was fired for the tweet.

Panera has not commented on the employee. But it did release a statement on the mac-n-cheese.

A spokesperson for the chain released a statement saying that the mac ‘n’ cheese is “made offsite with our proprietary recipe developed by our chefs.”

“It is shipped frozen to our bakery cafes — this allows us to avoid using preservatives which do not meet our clean standards,” the statement said.
