Panda Express Is Limiting Its Menu To Best-Selling Items Only

The news around the COVID-19 outbreak is constantly changing, but information about food safety and how to keep yourself healthy is crucial right now. Here is a comprehensive list on the foods you should be stocking up on during this period of social distancing, as well as information about your local grocery stores’ changing hours, an explanation of “no-contact delivery,” and a guide on how to help your community and its businesses throughout closures.

Panda Express announced this week that it would be changing its menu to be filled with its best-selling items only in an effort to take some of the strain off of its employees.

In the company’s announcement about the change, they explained that these dishes take time to prepare, so limiting the variety of them may help employees manage better in an era when they’re preparing take-out and delivery dishes amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

“The flavorful wok-prepared dishes with hand-cut vegetables take time and effort to prep, and Panda associates are working hard every day to provide comfort and nourishment to the community during this challenging time,” the statement read in part.

The change went into effect this Monday and includes the following dishes at participating locations:

  • Orange Chicken
  • Broccoli Beef
  • Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
  • Black Pepper Angus Steak
  • Kung Pao Chicken
  • Honey Walnut Shrimp
  • Mushroom Chicken
  • Firecracker Shrimp (for a limited-time only)
  • SweetFire Chicken
  • Chow Mein
  • Fried Rice
  • Super Greens
  • White Steamed Rice
  • Cream Cheese Rangoon
  • Chicken Egg Roll
  • Vegetable Spring Roll

    The chain is also rolling out contactless service in an effort to make customers and employees safer, according to Foodbeast.

    Oh, and FYI: Panda Express is still offering its $20 Family Meal Deal that has been gaining lots of love online from customers. It includes three large entrees and two large sides (oh look, you have a list of them above, how convenient!) and is available from now until April 17 so…can you say Easter dinner, anyone?
