HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is not a drill. Hattiesburg is really getting a Panera Bread. 

After years of anticipation, the franchise will be coming to the shopping center behind Chili's on 4600 Hardy Street. 

The restaurant will take up the space of four suites near The Planet Nutrition store.

A construction worker on site said that construction will begin soon on the back of the building for a drive-thru window.

An exact date for the restaurant opening has not been determined.
