Although the resemblances may be completely coincidental, it has been noted that the restaurant Panera Bread has more than a few similarities to our beloved Kora's Inn. According to it's website, Panera Bread started as Au Bon Pain Co., Inc. in 1981. In 1993, Au Bon Pain Co., Inc. purchased Saint Louis Bread Company, and was restaged as Panera Bread between 1993 and 1997, so it's possible Kora's Inn may have been modeled after this design.
