Panda Express Innovation Kitchen in Pasadena, California has inspired the chains restaurant to explore new concept with the new opening of their Panda + Tea. This will enable them to offers new menus and experiences for the customers. Here is what they say about the new opening:
Our Panda Express Innovation Kitchen in Pasadena was conceptualized so we could test new entrees, equipment, systems, menus and more. Inspired by this location, we have created a new iteration of restaurants that embody the intention and spirit of the original Innovation Kitchen and will have more consistent menu offerings. These restaurants are located in Monterey Park, Westwood and most recently, Hacienda Heights. We are calling these Panda + Tea to distinguish them from our Panda Express locations. In the future, Monterey Park and Westwood will be given the Panda + Tea name as well.
