Panda Express, the California-based fast casual chain that serves American Chinese cuisine, has opened a restaurant at 2500 Scottsville Road, previously the site of a Toot’s restaurant.
The Panda Express will have an official launch date and fundraising event Aug. 21, a news release said.
Visitors to the restaurant that day will have the chance to help raise money for Kids on the Block, an organization that provides education and prevention through puppetry for children and the community at large.
Panda Express will donate 50 percent of the launch day fundraiser event proceeds to Kids on the Block.
The restaurant is expected to have nearly 25 employees. It will offer a variety of Asian cuisine, including its signature Original Orange Chicken and Honey Walnut Shrimp dishes.
