Panera Bread – Ephrata, PA

Construction of a new multi-tenant retail building (See Ephrata Crossing East) and fit-out for a new Panera Bread bakery-cafe.


I chose Ames Construction to build my one-of-a-kind, three-story, medical office building because of their reputation as builders and their personable approach to the bidding process. I was confident that we would be able to work through the inevitable challenges of commercial construction and that proved to be true. They were honest and straight forward. We faced many challenges including a shutdown from COVID-19, but they always stood behind their work and proved to be a valuable partner in the project. I am grateful for the team at Ames, from the ownership to the project manager and site superintendent, as well as the trade partners. I would gladly recommend them to anyone considering a commercial construction project. I couldn’t be happier with the results of my beautiful new facility!
