(WWSB) -- Panera Bread is looking to hire more than 10,000 workers nationwide.

The company plans to add in-café and delivery driver jobs system-wide by the end of 2017 as it expands it delivery service to 35-40 percent of its cafes.

Ron Shaich, Panera founder, Chairman and CEO said, “In many places across the country, all that’s available for delivery is pizza or Chinese food.  We’re closing the gap in delivery alternatives and creating a way for people to have more options for real food delivered to their homes and workplaces.”

Cafes will generally deliver between the hours of 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., seven days a week, for as little as a $5 menu purchase plus a $3 delivery fee in most locations.

The guest can see expected arrival time, follow the delivery’s progress on a map, see a picture of and be introduced to their driver, and receive a notification when their driver is arriving.
