Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) announced today that the first Panda Express in the Philippines will open on December 12 at SM Megamall.
This new and exciting dining destination is expected to draw families and local foodies for a taste of the celebrated Original Orange Chicken, wok-tossed crispy chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce. It’s the best-selling dish on the menu in over 2,200 stores of Panda Express in several countries including Spain, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and Japan.
JFC also announced that the same menu from the United States will be served here, which includes other American Chinese classics Kung Pao Chicken, Broccoli Beef, and Asian Grilled Chicken. Vegetarians in the group can also try the Eggplant Tofu, lightly browned tofu, eggplant, and bell peppers tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce.
First opened in Glendale California, Panda Express has since popularized American Chinese cuisine, which is inspired by authentic Chinese recipes adapted to suit the global palate. It is now the largest Asian dining concept in the US, as well as the largest American Chinese dining concept in the world.
The brand’s foray into the Philippines was made possible by a joint venture between Panda Restaurant Group (PRG) and homegrown Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC), now one of the fastest growing Asian restaurant companies in the world.
