Panda Express to Break Ground Soon

Panda Express, a fast-food chain serving Chinese food, is coming to Stephenville soon. All of the pre-building plans have been made and the only thing left is waiting on the developers to sign off on the property. The restaurant will be located on the west side of town next to Pastafina. There is no set date as to when construction will begin, but Deputy City Administrator Jeremy Allen said that he’s been told once the first day the ground breaks, the restaurant will be completed 120 days after.

The final plans are supposed to be made in the next week or so, so be on the lookout for Panda Express next semester. According to Allen, a common misconception with businesses is that towns seek them out to bring revenue. He said that “businesses choose us. We don’t choose them.”

The majority of businesses know the demographics and they decide to come here. They reach out to the city and formulate plans based on those demographics.

My favorite tradition at Tarleton is all of homecoming week, I love it because of the memories that are made. Every year the memories are always different even though homecoming is all traditions.
