WKU and ARAMARK Higher Education are pleased to announce the addition of Panda Express to the WKU Restaurant & Catering Group’s (R&CG) extensive dining portfolio. Panda Express is located at the top of the hill in Garrett Conference Center, one floor above the Garrett Food Court. This location is the first of its kind in Bowling Green. WKU will celebrate the Panda Express ribbon cutting and open house event at 10 a.m. Nov. 1.
The addition of Panda Express is the result of recent research conducted by WKU R&CG. When asked what brands they would like to see added to the campus dining community, students asked for bolder flavor profiles and Asian cuisine.
“The location most anticipated by students and the campus community this school year has been Panda Express,” said Tim Colley, Resident District Manager of WKU R&CG/ARAMARK. “Since the location opened, student feedback has been extremely positive.”
Founded in 1973, Panda Express is the world’s leader in Asian dining experiences. The brand has 1,500 locations in 46 states, Puerto Rico and is America’s fastest growing Chinese restaurant concept.
“We are thrilled to have the first Panda Express in Bowling Green,” said Colley. “We are confident the community will embrace it and love the flavors as much as our students do.”
