WICHITA — California-based Panda Express has chosen a second Wichita site.
The first Panda will open in early December at One Kellogg Place on East Kellogg where Walmart is.
The second will be on Maize Road in front of Lowe’s.
“It’s the logical place for us to go,” says Susan Flesher, Panda’s real estate manager.
She likes the new retail stores, especially big ones like Lowe’s, opening in the area.
The restaurant will locate on the second pad site north of the Lowe’s entrance.
The west-side Panda will be 2,700 square feet, which is a bit bigger than the east side’s 2,448 square feet.
Flesher says the extra space is for some expanded offerings, though it’s not yet clear what those offerings will be.
Look for the west-side Panda to open this spring.
