P.F. Chang’s opened its first P.F. Chang’s To Go location in Chicago. P.F. Chang’s To Go River North is the first of three planned openings for the P.F. Chang’s To Go concept in the Chicago market with other openings planned in large cities across America. These new restaurant additions will allow more guests to experience the P.F. Chang’s Asian favorites in a convenient format that provides a solution for online ordering, takeout, catering and delivery in areas that don’t have a P.F. Chang’s restaurant nearby.
P.F. Chang’s To Go River North is about 2,000 square feet, a smaller footprint than the company’s full-scale restaurants. This smaller size allows P.F. Chang’s to access high-density metropolitan communities, that don’t always offer space conducive to a full-scale restaurant. The curated menu features P.F. Chang’s most well-known made from scratch dishes, including the best selling Chang’s Lettuce Wraps, Mongolian Beef, The Original Dynamite Shrimp and Chang’s Spicy Chicken. A grab-and-go fridge offers a selection of fresh sushi, salads and beverages.
“We’ve seen the evolution of dining and are ready to meet market demand for easily accessible yet elevated Asian cuisine,” said Chris Demery, senior vice president of off-premises dining for P.F. Chang’s. “Only 25 percent of U.S. households are conveniently located to a P.F. Chang’s and distance is the number-one reason our guests say they are not able to visit us as often as they would like. P.F. Chang’s To Go, along with the continued delivery availability from Bistro locations, will allow us to reach more guests nationwide.”
Takeout, delivery, catering and third-party delivery services are the focus for P.F. Chang’s To Go, allowing guests the ability to enjoy their P.F. Chang’s favorites in their home, office, or on the go. DeliverSafe, eco-friendly sealed bags will be offered for third-party delivery orders, ensuring guests receive their meal just as it was prepared in the restaurant.
The new P.F. Chang’s To Go River North location will operate Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The location complements four full-scale restaurants in the Chicago metro.
Two more P.F. Chang’s To Go openings are planned for the Chicago area later in 2020. The concept is also planned for Manhattan and Long Island, N.Y., as well as Houston and Washington, D.C.
