Businesses aren’t pulling any stops in their efforts to adjust to a post-coronavirus world. While most are observing stay-at-home orders, service workers and others on the front line are doing what they can to keep economies from falling into a state of total chaos. This includes restaurants, grocery stores, post offices and public transportation. Despite the clear risk involved, if there’s a positive take away from all of this, it’s that the corona pandemic is bringing humanity together.
For well known eatery Panda Express, that togetherness comes in the form of a truncated menu which consists only of their bestsellers. The goal is to lower the risk of spreading the virus to employees and customers by limiting the number of options offered.
Food preparation plays a large role in Panda Express’ decision and with a rise in take-out orders, a simpler menu will help employees working long hours. The temporary menu change will look something like this:
- Original Orange Chicken®
- Broccoli Beef
- Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
- Kung Pao Chicken
- Mushroom Chicken
- Honey Walnut Shrimp
- Sweetfire Chicken Breast
- Firecracker Shrimp
- New Black Pepper Angus Steak
These changes went into effect on Monday, April 6th at all nationwide locations and remain in effect until further notice. To further increase the safety of Panda Express employees and customers, contactless service will be rolled out at all locations. Each Panda Express will have designated areas for walk-up ordering and separate designated areas for pick-up.
As we collectively push through this trying time, it’s not only important to maintain a healthy outlook, but also a healthy appetite. You can order Panda Express’ famous orange chicken here.
