LONG ISLAND, NY - May 24, 2011 - It may be sunny outside on Thursday, May 26th, but it will be pouring inside Panera Bread. That's right-nearly a thousand gallons of free lemonade are expected to be poured on Free Lemonade Day.

"With Memorial Day right around the corner, it's Panera Bread's way of celebrating the start of summer," says Greg George, Vice President of the Long Island bakery-cafes. "Guests can toast to the warmer weather with a cool, tall, 16-ounce cup that's only 90 calories without upsetting their summer shape-up plans."

Panera Bread will be handing out free 16-ounce cups of thirst-quenching lemonade "on the house" in each of its Long Island, Queens and Staten Island cafes all day Thursday May 26th. The offer is limited to: one free lemonade per person upon request and does not include Panera's frozen lemonade drinks. No purchase is necessary.
