Pei Wei, renowned nationwide for delivering a handcrafted, Pan-Asian culinary experience, will open its first restaurant in Apex on July 31.

The new fast-casual restaurant, located at 1107 Pine Plaza Drive in Nichols Plaza, will host two pre-opening, reservation-only dining experiences for guests on July 28, and July 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Guests who register to attend the exclusive events will enjoy a complimentary meal, along with a sneak peek of the restaurant.

On July 31, at 10:30 a.m., the Apex Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by remarks. Doors will immediately open for business at 11 a.m. A grand opening event for the local community will follow on Saturday, August 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include several giveaways, such as free food samples and one Free Pei Wei for a Year gift card, good for one free entrée per week for 52 weeks.

“We are extremely grateful to our loyal guests for making Pei Wei a top dining destination in the Raleigh area, and we’re thrilled to bring Apex a Pei Wei of its own,” says Sherwood Bailey, Pei Wei General Manager. “My team and I can’t wait to open the doors and begin sharing our handcrafted, made-to-order dining experience with the local community.”

Pei Wei features dozens of Pan-Asian dishes—including noodle, rice and salad bowls, sushi and hand-rolled dim sum. All signature dishes are made to order, using artisan wok cooking methods in an open-concept kitchen.

The Apex opening marks the fourth Pei Wei in the Raleigh area and the sixth in North Carolina.
