Construction for the new Panda Express began on Friday, Dec. 7. The construction will run through the remainder of the semester and through winter break. The expected opening date for Panda Express is Jan. 22.
Panda Express will replace Zoca and Mai Thai in the ILC food court. Zoca’s Tex-Mex style food will no longer be available. Mai Thai, however, will still offer cold rice and noodle bowls in the convenience store in the ILC. Their signature sushi will also be available.
The Mai Thai in the Student Union Building will remain open through the spring. There are no current plans to replace that location as the partnership between Aramark and the local Thai food restaurant continues.
