    24,000 Panda Associates living one common mission: “Deliver exceptional Asian dining experiences by building an organization where people are inspired to better their lives.”

    People – Guests and Associates alike – are the foundation of our business. Panda is committed to exceeding guest expectations by remaining dedicated to the development and growth of all our Associates. Great Associates result in exceptionally happy guests.

    Known as the "Panda Way," our company culture places special emphasis on encouraging our Associates to focus on a healthy lifestyle, continuous learning, developing others and acknowledging others. We believe that this, coupled with our five fundamental values – proactive, respect/win-win, growth, great operations and giving – provides our Associates with an environment where they can both inspire and be inspired.
