Panda Express celebrated its launch day celebration of a new restaurant location in Monroe, Louisiana on Friday, Oct. 5 at 10:30 a.m.

This restaurant marks the first in Monroe and the 13th in the state. In commemoration its opening, Panda Express plans to donate 20 percent of its launch day profits to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Louisiana.

The restaurant plans to continuously seek out more fundraising opportunities with like-minded organizations which work to better the Monroe community.

Taking pride in its commitment to customer service and long-standing values, the family-owned business strives to become an important part of the communities it serves. To better acquaint itself with the Monroe community, the restaurant held a ribbon cutting ceremony with surprise giveaways and photo opportunities with the brand mascot throughout the day.

The latest opening will bring employment opportunities to a large handful of Monroe residents. Being an industry-leader in people development, Panda Express is committed to offering opportunities for professional and individual growth to its associates.

To do this, the restaurant offers special programs and self-development courses available to all levels of management.

The new restaurant can be found at 4401 Pecanland Mall Drive. The menu includes American Chinese dishes like Original Orange Chicken, SweetFire Chicken Breast, Honey Walnut Shrimp and Shanghai Angus Steak.

Guests will also have the opportunity experience Honey Sesame Chicken Breast, a coveted limited-time menu item that has been a fan favorite since first being introduced in 2013 and recently returned in August.

New this year, Panda Express has added organic honey to the dish which enriches the original recipe and is a wonderful complement to other beloved Panda Express entrees and sides.
