The demolition of the former Steak ‘n Shake on South Bend’s south side is underway this week.
The restaurant on East Ireland Road closed more than a year ago, originally for remodeling.
The South Bend Tribune reports that a decision was made last March to close it permanently. The site will reportedly become home to a Panera Bread location, though another Panera location already exists across the street in the Erskine Plaza. There’s no word on what effect this may have on that location.
