Panera Sues Former Executive Over Trade Secrets

 A Food Fight Over Trade Secrets

The Associated Press wrote in this article about the legal battle between Panera, a former Panera executive, and Papa John’s. Panera recently filed a lawsuit claiming that a former executive took trade secrets with him when he left to go work for Papa John’s. The suit claims that the executive’s knowledge gives Papa John’s an unfair advantage. In response, Papa John’s stated that they are not interested in Panera’s confidential information and they do not consider Panera as a competitive business.
