McLane Foodservice, a division of McLane Company Inc., has entered into a distribution services agreement with Panda Restaurant Group Inc. out of Rosemead, California, to continue to service its restaurants in the southwestern United States while expanding into the mid-western and southeastern United States, two new Panda Restaurant Group regions for McLane Foodservice.
McLane will provide Panda Restaurant Group with comprehensive supply chain solutions, including logistics, procurement, technology, inventory control, and promotion management. McLane offers tremendous value and efficiencies through centralized systems, consistent processes, and experienced customer-focused people across multiple geographies.

Its distribution centers in the Midwest and Southeast were located ideally to serve additional restaurants in those new markets,” says Rif Wiguna, VP of supply chain management, Panda Restaurant Group Inc. “We look forward to continuing a long-term and successful relationship.”
“Panda Restaurant Group has allowed McLane to provide comprehensive supply chain solutions to its restaurants for many years in the Southwestern markets and will now grow with them into new markets,” says Susan Adzick, VP of sales and marketing for McLane Foodservice. “We are very excited about this opportunity to continue to work with Panda Restaurant Group and leverage our systems distribution expertise to meet their future growth goals.”
