Au Bon Pain Grand Opening



Please join Duke Dining as we celebrate the Grand Opening of Au Bon Pain, located in the Bryan Center, on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

The day will be filled with raffles, samplings and give-a-ways with the ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:45. Enter the raffle by 2:15 to have a chance at winning an Au Bon Pain gift basket. Gift baskets will be raffled at 2:30 and 3:00.

Au Bon Pain officially opened on Friday, August 17, 2012 and has been very well received by the university community. Offering made-to-order salads, wraps and sandwiches and fresh baked artisan breads it’s been tough to find even standing room at Duke Dining’s newest addition.

Founded in 1978 Au Bon Pain has grown into an internationally recognized leader in the fast casual restaurant category. Their chefs are committed to using high quality, sustainably sourced ingredients in all recipes – all natural chicken, antibiotic-free turkey, fresh avocado, shade-grown herbicide-free Arabica coffee beans and local produce when available. Over the last three years, Au Bon Pain has earned Health Magazine’s distinction as one of America’s Top 5 Healthiest Restaurant Chains. Their award-winning in-café nutritional kiosk provides full ingredient, nutritional and allergen information, and all menus display calorie counts. Au Bon Pain’s promise is “food will always be delicious and fresh and service fast and friendly,” making them a perfect fit and welcome addition to the Duke Dining team.

“It is an honor to partner with Duke Dining. We share the same mission and goals of providing high quality food and services that meets or exceeds customer satisfaction. They have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to a long collaborative relationship,” said Au Bon Pain CEO Sue Morelli.
