At Monday night’s Lake Saint Louis Board of Aldermen meeting, the board approved  the site plan for a Panda Express at the Shoppes of Hawk Ridge.

Panda Express started as the Panda Inn restaurant in Pasadena, California in 1973, with the first Panda Express fast-food restaurant opening in 1983. The 30-year-old chain now has more than 1,600 locations, both in the United States and overseas.

Mayor Kathy Schweikert said that the company was working with the city’s Development Review Board in order to honor elements of Panda Express’ established design while respecting the development standards for the Shoppes of Hawk Ridge.
