“Panera Bread opened at LaCenterra in December of 2007.  The success of our opening was due in no small part to a great working relationship with Vista Equities Group.  From our first conversations, it was evident that Vista was on our side.  Everyone at Vista were very easy to communicate with, and they were extremely supportive of our concept.  I always considered Vista and Panera to be part of the same team.  Having worked with developers across the country, I can say without hesitation that Vista was one of the friendliest, and at the same time, one of the most professional groups I have had the pleasure of interacting with.”
