PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Popular American Chinese cuisine chain Panda Express is breaking into the Pittsburgh market.

The chain’s second location is opening Friday in Cranberry Township at 11 a.m.

The 20111 Route 19 location follows the West Mifflin location which opened earlier this month.

That restaurant is located at 2070 Lebanon Church Road.

The chain says it will be donating 20 percent of their grand opening day proceeds to a local organization and plans to continuously support a variety of charities.

In a press release the company says: “Panda Express is committed to serving the areas we are part of, whether that be through providing guests a place to share the joy of delicious food with loved ones or welcoming residents into our Panda family as associates,” said David Rodriguez, director of operations for Panda Express. “Since this is our first location in Pittsburgh, we look forward to showing our dedication to giving back and supporting others. Helping our communities thrive is a focus for Panda Express and allows our own restaurant and associates to grow and feel a part of something more.”
