Glad to hear they're doing that well. I agree it would be nice to have a location at Alamo Ranch.

We can't even get Panera over here in AR. I think the economic diversity in this area scares off many businesses. These days, they want to invest in a sure thing.

It could happen.

They put one at 151 and 410 and that area is way more "economically diverse" than Alamo Ranch. The 151 Panera gets all the Westover Hills workers and the military people so it wouldn't really make sense to add another Panera at Alamo Ranch (all the eateries there also attract Westover Hills Workers) at this time.

That's silly; that particular Panera is very hard to get to for morning commute- we were just discussing this regarding the new apartments there. AR is FULL of military people who would use Panera (and a T Joe's). There's a McDonalds every few miles, so why not Panera?

I'm not talking about where military folks live I'm talking about where the people form Lackland each lunch. Ever time I go into the Panera or that Chipotle half of the people are in military uniforms.

McDonalds are Panera are not the same quality or fast food price point.

If they put a Panera at Alamo Ranch I don't know how well it would do but it would definitely cannibalize the 151 Paneras lunch crowed by taking most of the people that work in the Westover Hills area.

I thought this thread was about Trader Joes. I was saying Alamo Ranch would be great for me but anywhere around Bandera Road to 151 would be great too.

Southeast corner of 1604/10. It'll be part of The Landmark development.

It'll be a high-end development as well. The smallest units (480 sq ft) will be going for over $800 a month.

Or the fact that nearly every other chain restaurant is already at Alamo Ranch. I seriously doubt Panera is "scared" at all. There's just so much competition. Plus, there's a Panera at 151/410.

I doubt Panera is scared of these statistics:

Within a 1-mile radius of Alamo Ranch, the actual master planned community, the population is 7,401. The average age is 30 years old. The population within that one mile radius is growing at a rate of nearly 1,000 people a year. The average household income in 2012 was $96,899 and the median household income in 2012 was $85,255 with a 2012 per capita income of $31,815.

Within a 5-mile radius of Alamo Ranch, the population grows to 189,533. The average age is 32 years old. The population within that five mile radius is growing at a rate of nearly 6,000 people a year. The average household income in 2012 was $76,019 and the median household income in 2012 was $66,733 with a 2012 per capita income of $24,556.

I'm curious to go to TJs at some point. So what is so good here besides their cookie butter I keep hearing about? I suppose it's only worth getting a few items here as it sounds like this isn't a one stop grocery store.
