It’s a long anticipated arrival.

Delaware is on the brink of embracing a new flavor as Panda Express gears up to open its doors to the public. This latest addition to the city’s dining scene is not just any opening; it’s an event that promises to blend community engagement and culinary delight. Here’s a closer look at what makes this grand opening a must-attend event for locals and visitors alike.

Grand Opening Gala

The excitement begins on Wednesday, February 28, at 10:30 AM, when Panda Express will mark its grand debut at 1400 Sunbury Road with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. This special event is not only a celebration of the new restaurant but also an opportunity for the first 88 guests to receive an exclusive Panda Express branded t-shirt, making the occasion memorable.

A Vision of Growth and Community

The new Panda Express restaurant is a testament to thoughtful planning and community integration. Approved by the City last year, the project was developed by Heights Venture Architects, emphasizing a harmonious blend with the local landscape. Located on a spacious lot within the Glenwood Commons Shopping Center, the restaurant is designed with accessibility and aesthetics in mind. Featuring brick and Delaware blue-veined limestone, the building is a nod to local architecture, complementing its surroundings while offering a modern dining experience.

With 46 parking spaces available, guests are assured convenience alongside a menu that promises to deliver Panda Express’s beloved fusion of American Chinese cuisine. This establishment is not just about food; it’s about creating a space where the community can gather, share, and enjoy.

Philanthropy at Its Heart

Panda Express is more than a restaurant chain; it’s a brand with a mission. The Panda Cares Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Panda Express, has been instrumental in supporting health and education initiatives for over 13 million youths. With more than $282 million raised since 1999, the foundation’s efforts underscore a commitment to societal betterment. The Panda Cares Scholars Program is a beacon of hope, offering financial aid, academic support, and leadership development to students across the United States.

Embracing the Future

As Panda Express opens its newest location in Delaware, it’s clear that this is more than just a restaurant opening; it’s a celebration of community, culture, and cuisine. The brand’s dedication to philanthropy and its commitment to providing a welcoming space for all to enjoy their favorite meals speaks volumes about its values.
