Before that, the Panera Bread chain of bakeries and cafes was also taking active actions in bringing its brand into the Metaverse.
Accordingly, on February 3, Panera Bread filed a similar trademark application for a chain of virtual restaurants and cafes called PANERAVERSE.
The chain’s development plans include products such as: downloadable content and NFTs, virtual food and beverage items, and virtual facilities where users can congregate.
Sharing on Forbes on February 9, Gerben announced that
“I think you’ll see every brand you can think of to do these filings within the next 12 months.”
