Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Freezing temperatures aside, business was heating up at Panera Bread in Duluth on its opening weekend.

General Manager Scott Mabusth says the lines have been out the door since they opened for regular business hours at six, Saturday morning.

He adds that, if business keeps up like this, Duluth may have to make room for another Panera Bread in the near future.

"I see another one coming to town with the business we're seeing right now," said an excited Mabusth. "So, hopefully everyone keeps coming here [and] we'll get another one going, maybe up by the University [of Minnesota Duluth], so that's the plan!"

Panera Bread's current location is in a newly developed mini mall near Miller Hill Mall.
