Panda Express celebrated its Omaha grand opening at their 175th Street and West Center Road location. Their 168th Street and West Maple Road location will open Monday, Aug. 17.
The Chamber's Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership worked closely with Panda Express' real estate manager and executives to help them identify potential locations in Omaha, assist with marketing and public relations efforts with the local media, and build community relations for Panda Express as a solid corporate citizen.
"We are excited that Panda Express has chosen Omaha to continue its expansion", said Winsley Durand, Greater Omaha Chamber director of Retail Attraction. "Panda Express' decision to open its first restaurants in Omaha is a significant investment of dollars and will create up to 35 new jobs. This is a major sign of confidence on Panda Express' part in our city. Omaha's diverse economy and steady growth are some of the factors that have brought our community to the attention of Panda Express, as well as to other retailers considering our market."
