Panda Express is coming to the east end of Owensboro. In September, a representative with the company told Owensboro Times the restaurant could open in April 2021.
“The projected opening date is 4/21/21. This is not a guarantee that the location will open on that date and is only an estimate of the time frame,” a guest relations representative for Panda Restaurant Group, Inc., wrote in an email to Owensboro Times in response to an inquiry about the new location.
According to documents obtained by OT in September — and confirmed this week by a building permit for the location — the restaurant will be located in the 3000 block of Heartland Crossing, between Menards and Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
The nearest Panda Express is currently located in Evansville, Ind.
Panda Express is a fast food restaurant chain which serves American-Chinese cuisine. The first Panda Express was opened in 1983 in Glendale, Calif.
