Panera Bread Company is getting a new owner. JAB Holding says it's buying the St. Louis-based bakery cafe chain for seven-and-a-half billion dollars. The deal will further expand the coffee holdings of Europe-based JAB which also owns Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Caribou Coffee and Peet's Coffee & Tea, as well as Keurig Green Mountain.
