For many AAPI families, the ability to survive, prosper and build a better life for future generations has been through entrepreneurship – everything from owning a small business to building a national household name.

You may know Panda Express as a staple Chinese restaurant chain in most cities, but what many people don’t know is that the business is family owned. Andrew and Peggy Cherng opened the first Panda Express in 1983 in Glendale, California, a decade after opening their first Panda Inn restaurant in Pasadena. Now, the nation-wide company has over 2,200 locations and is a household name in America. Their daughter, Andrea, also works for the company as Chief Brand Officer.
