History of Panda Express

Panda Express began with one restaurant, a Chinese restaurant called the Panda Inn that was located in Pasadena, CA. Started by Yangzhou province native, Andrew Cherng and his wife, Peggy, Cherng's initial impetus for starting a business was to create jobs for their family. Andrew’s father had been a master chef.

It seemed only natural for Andrew to establish his own American dream business with a Chinese restaurant. That first restaurant led to the first mall food-court Panda Express, which led to the fast food empire it is today. The Panda Restaurant Group boasts billion dollars in annual sales. That translates to nearly fifty million pounds of orange chicken, their most popular food offering.

Panda Express became the first major Chinese fast food chain, racking up triple the sales of its next two competitors combined. Ultimately, the Panda venture led to a complete rethinking of the Chinese restaurant industry. At this point, the Cherng family and the Panda Restaurant Group manage all the 800 plus Panda Express stores covering forty plus US states. Ten new stores are estimated to be built each month.

New Panda Express Restaurants

The success of the Panda Express takeout restaurants have since given strength to a new launch of Panda Inn restaurants, featuring award-winning Madarine cuisine. The Panda Restaurant Group has also added the Japanese cuisine restaurant chain, Hibachi-San, to its family of restaurants.

Americanized Chinese food has been taken to task, in recent years, by government studies showing it is sometimes loaded with large amounts of fat and sodium. Panda Express prides itself on their more healthful Chinese entrees. Their entrees and sides contain no artificial trans fats per serving. The restaurant chain does not add MSG to their food.

They use pure soybean oil in food preparation. Diet and health-minded items are always on the menu. Even their orange chicken has only 400 calories, 20 grams of fat and 600 milligrams of sodium per serving. A comparable fast food hamburger boasts 670 calories, 40 grams of fat and 980 milligrams of sodium. Panda's broccoli beef has only 130 calories per serving and 4 grams of fat.
