Alongside Peking Pork, Panda Express has introduced a newly designed takeout box, a universal symbol of American Chinese comfort food. Paying homage to Panda Express' Chinese and American origins, the new design unites the Great Wall of China and San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge through a Chinatown archway, while giving nod to the popular takeout box illustration Americans have grown to expect when ordering Chinese food.
