Panda Express revives a menu item

This customer favourite disappeared in 2021. Panda Express partnered with Beyond Meat for a plant-based version of its Original Orange Chicken in 2021.

Panda Express has over 2,300 stores in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, & Japan. 

It began in 1983 in Glendale, California, & is now the country's largest Chinese fast food chain. 

Plant-based chicken was a limited-time promotion in NYC & SoCal to test demand for alternative proteins. 

Panda Express' signature orange sauce & Orange Chicken were the obvious choices for a vegetarian option. 

Panda Express cooked 1,300 pounds of meat-free chicken on launch day; many locations sold out within two weeks. 

A year later, Panda Express brought back Beyond Original Orange Chicken nationwide. This limited-time promotion will be available at over 2,300 restaurants until supplies run out.
