Bringing people together to share joy has been our family’s inspiration since opening the first Panda Express in 1983 in Glendale, California. As we continue to open restaurants from coast to coast and around the world, the bold flavors of Chinese cuisine inspire our cooking, while our extended family of guests and associates remains at the heart of what we do. Welcome to our family’s Chinese kitchen.
