As a Panera employee, I can tell you the portions have not once changed in the two years I’ve been with the company. While I wholeheartedly agree the food is overpriced for the relative portion size, the sizes have not changed.

We have required weights for any meats, and all other products have specific portion tools. These portions are also identical for all items whether they are for here or to go, for anyone who thinks eating in gets you more. The salad boxes were changed to the plastic containers simply because they are much easier to work with quickly during a rush instead of folding those stubborn boxes, they are more appealing to the eye, and they prevent any product from falling out as easily as in the open edges of the boxes.

As for the bagels, we have fresh dough shipped to the store every morning, and the bakers bake fresh bagels every night. At the end of the day, all left over pastries, breads, and bagels are donated to charities, so whenever you purchase a bagel, it is never more than a day old.
