Price; quality; and quantity; those are the three main components one should look for in a decent place to eat. In today’s economy, with the amount of money we pay for food, we want enough to satisfy us and be worth the money. Quality is a high standard in today’s food industry. Customers want to know if the food they are consuming is made from fresh and natural ingredients rather than preservatives. Quantity is a must as people want a good amount of product for what they pay for. Consumers don’t want food that will only fill them for an hour; they want food that is a meal. The only fast food place that comes to mind that fits these qualifications is Panda Express. Let’s see how it stands with the check list, starting with price.
With the slump the economy is in today, most people can’t afford to spend $8 dollars on a combo meal that includes greasy, low quality, cold food. Panda Express offers a few different options for a reasonable price. For $7, a three-item meal includes a side of rice or chow mien, and three servings of your choice of entrées. Drinks are only $1.99 for a large or $2.75 for your choice of available bottled beverages. Panda Express even offers kids meals for less than $5. No matter your situation, there are options that are delicious and affordable. So with the $7 you pay, let’s look at the quality of food being served and if you are getting your money’s worth. Now-a-days, the food industry is pushing the limits on the amount of fresh food they cook with and sell to consumers, relying mainly on preservatives. Panda Express, although they do use some flavoring, cooks with fresh vegetables mixed with premium choice meats. They also advertise in their establishments that they do not cook with MSG, also known as monosodium glutamate, which is a flavor enhancer. The flavor Panda Express incorporates in to their food is natural, fresh, and delicious. One customer on a Panda Express food review...
