Panda Express Franchise Opportunities – History

The Panda Restaurant Group, which owns Panda Express, was founded by Andrew and Peggy Cherng, and Andrew’s father, Master Chef Ming Tsai Cherng, who opened their first Panda Inn restaurant in 1973 in Pasadena, California. When they were invited to open a fast-food version of Panda Inn for the Glendale Galleria, Panda Express was born and has steadily spread across the United States since, and even opened two restaurants in Japan, which have since closed. Among its three restaurants, the Panda Restaurant Group, for which Andrew Cherng still serves as co-CEO, brings in annual sales of more than $1 billion and has more than 13,000 employees company-wide.
