Panda Express Gourmet Chinese Food Review
Posted by Karl Keller
Business Owner & Franchise Wisdom Editor

All Panda Express stores are company owned... this is not a franchise!

Panda Express is a fast casual restaurant chain serving American Chinese cuisine and is the largest chain of Chinese fast food restaurants in the United States.

The Panda Restaurant Group, parent company of Panda Inn, Panda Express & Hibachi-San, was founded by Andrew and Peggy Cherng and Andrew's father, Master Chef Ming Tsai Cherng, all of whom used to live in the Yangzhou region of China's Jiangsu province. They started their first Panda Inn restaurant in 1973 in Pasadena, California. Up until 2004, they operated mainly inside the United States, in casinos, shopping malls, toll plaza, supermarkets, airports, train stations, strip malls, theme parks, stadiums, and college campuses. In 2004, the company began opening stand-alone restaurants with drive-through windows.

The chain offers a variety of food such as the popular Orange chicken, Beijing Beef, Mandarin Chicken, and Kung Pao chicken. Combo meals are served with fried rice, steamed rice, chow mein, or mixed vegetables. No MSG is added to any of the items at Panda Express after it has been delivered to the restaurant, nor does Panda Express purchase from any suppliers who add MSG prior to delivery.

Panda Express has its headquarters in Rosemead, California and has
about 1,500 restaurants covering 42 States and Puerto Rico.

Panda Express is everywhere. The lightning fast-growing chain of American Chinese cuisine has outlets in casinos, shopping malls, supermarkets, airports, train stations, theme parks, stadiums, college campuses, even the Pentagon.

They're a well-run company that cares about they're employees, so much so, they pay most of them $1 - $2 more per hour than other restaurant chains to take care of their employees and to get them to put extra effort and care in taking care of their product and the customer.

What's not to like.  To be honest, not much.  I think Panda Express would be a great franchise to own... if it were one.  Unfortunately, they aren't as all of their stores are company-owned.  Sometimes it feels like the story of my life... all the good ones are always taken (that holds true in my life with the exception of my wife... honey I love ya).

If it's a Panda Express franchise you're looking for, I'm sorry to say you're out of luck and you'll either need to either look at a different franchise or open up your criteria for business opportunties outside of the franchise arena.  There are a lot of opportunities out there, you just need to look.

Key "Pros" Of This Business

Solid company
Still has room to grow
Well-run company

Key Headaches ("Cons") To Consider

Not a franchise

Is this the right economy to have a long term 3-5 year investment locked up when sudden shifts are readily forecast? Why not invest a minute fraction of that amount in a business that is actually designed for today's economy?
