The latest round of financing was led by existing investor Comcast Ventures. Zola has raised $140 million to date. 

Panera is now delivering food across the U.S. The restaurant chain announced the launch of its nationwide delivery service, which will reach 897 cities and 43 states. Panera’s delivery service is driven by the delivery logistics platform Bringg, and will operate during lunch and dinner hours. Each delivery requires a $5 minimum order and has a $3 fee.
