Andrew J.C. Cherng, originally from Yangzhou of Jiangsu Province, is the Founder and Chairman of the Board for Panda Restaurant Group (PRG). Most Americans are familiar with the company’s Panda Express chain in shopping malls and other retail locations across the United States. In 2007, the company group was grossing more than $1 billion and employed more than 18,000 people.

Born in the Yangzhou region of China, Cherng had migrated with his family to the United States from Japan in the 1960s after leaving China by way of Hong Kong and Taipei. Cherng along with his master chef father, Ming Tsai Cherng, opened Panda Inn in 1973, one of the first full-service Chinese restaurants in Pasadena, California. The menu blended Mandarin and Szechwan styles that fit in well enough with the Southern California lifestyle to open six additional restaurants.
