The cities ranged across the US from Phoenix, Austin, Las Vegas, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and more.

The Results

With the power of local influencers, Panera Bread generated over 500 authentic images and videos, reached over 11 million potential consumers, and saw an average engagement rate of 4%. The brand also ran the library of content as paid ads.
