Celebrate Free KobariTM Beef Day on September 29
ROSEMEAD, CA–(Marketwire – September 16, 2010) – Panda Express is proud to announce that its newest culinary creation, Kobari™ Beef, will hit stores nationwide on September 22.
Kobari™ Beef begins with slices of tender marinated beef tossed with wok-seared mushrooms, freshly cut leeks, crunchy onions, and crispy red bell peppers. The finishing touch is Panda’s new secret Kobari™ sauce. Guests seeking a culinary adventure will be delighted by Kobari™ Beef’s Bold Asian Flavors.
Inspired by the sweet, smoky and spicy flavors found in Korean BBQ, Panda’s team of culinary experts went to great lengths to fine tune the secret Kobari™ sauce to perfection. “We want to share the unique flavors of Asian-style barbeque and are excited to bring a first-of-its-kind flavor profile to our guests at Panda Express,” said Panda Express Executive Chef Andy Kao. “Guests are in for a bold new experience.”
To help support the launch of Kobari™ Beef, Panda Express is leaning on its now famous talking Panda Bear characters, Eddie and Tom-Tom, who will star in a new set of commercials featuring their comedic antics to get their “paws” on the secret Kobari sauce.
Rounding out the celebration, Panda Express is hosting a Free Kobari™ Beef Day on September 29. Fans can sign onto Panda Express’ Facebook page to receive a coupon for a free serving of Kobari™ Beef. Visit www.facebook.com/pandaexpress for more information.
