Panda Express Expands Into Mexico

Expansion Plan Part of Company's International Brand Development

ROSEMEAD, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Panda Express, the world's leader in Asian dining experiences, today announced it's expanding into Mexico and will open its first Panda Express restaurant on Saturday, Sept. 3 in Mexico City. The company is actively looking to open more locations in the next year with the second restaurant scheduled to be a freestanding unit.

Panda Express has partnered with premier master franchiser Grupo Gigante for its Mexico development and operation of its restaurants. The company is a key player in the Mexican economy, as it has acquired commercial chains and created strategic alliances to develop Mexico and generate jobs for the country. Both companies share the same intense focus on people development and community support.

"In Mexico today, there is no clear leader in the Chinese fast casual industry. This expansion is an opportunity for Panda Express to launch this sector by bringing our Orange Chicken and other favorites to the Mexican consumer," said Bob Lustig, senior vice president, Panda Express International. "We have spent the last year developing deep relationships with the Grupo Gigante team, which has set a solid foundation for the success of this venture."
