Panda Express will hold its’ West Valley Grand Opening on July 25th. Months after it was announced that property near the West Valley Walmart had been purchased, construction has begun on Yakima’s second Panda Express location. The current location is located on South First Street across from Les Schwab Tires.

The new store will be located next to Chase Bank on West Nob Hill Blvd. Panda Express will be just one of several businesses that have sprung up adjacent to Walmart in West Valley, joining Walgreen’s, HAPO Credit Union and Chase Bank in the area.

Panda Express offers what they call “gourmet chinese food” in a fast food concept with an emphasis on fresh ingredients. They currently operate over 1,400 restaurants in the United States and Puerto Rico.
