Chinese eatery Panda Express plans to open a restaurant in Issaquah.

The fast casual chain is due to open in a vacant space in Lake Sammamish Center near Fred Meyer and The Home Depot. Quiznos last occupied the space at 6150 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E., Suite C.

Crews continue to renovate the space and a large banner in the window proclaims “opening soon” to passers-by.

Panda Express — launched in 1983 and based in Rosemead, Calif. — operates 1,500 restaurants in 42 states, plus Puerto Rico and Mexico.

The chain also operates restaurants in Bellevue, Redmond, Renton and Seattle.

In May, national market research firm Technomic ranked Panda Express as the segment leader for Asian and noodle fast casual restaurants.

    HOW is Panda Express is an example of the world class Highlands job that we expect – NEW employers for the new economy in Issaquah for Hospital and college workers. I don’t understand what is happening up here.

    Yeah I thought was wow too, but after I stop by the service was terrible, not polite, sometimes they gave you soo little amount of food, and after 2pm don’t even think to go there, the food is no longer good, orange chicken hard, I asked for new one she no new one, they suppose to make us a new one. It’s seems like they don’t know what their doing, I will never suggest any of my friend going to this Panda Express.

Got something to say?
