Asian restaurant chain PF Chang’s has opened its first takeaway and delivery point in DC’s Dupont Circle.
Asian restaurant chain PF Chang’s has opened its first takeaway and delivery point in DC, at 1120 20th St., NW, in Dupont Circle.
The 1,300-square-foot store has indoor seating for 12, but is designed specifically for online ordering, takeaway, delivery and catering. It is open from 14:00 to 21:00
PF Chang’s launched the To Go concept in 2020, when the pandemic closed restaurants and made takeaway and delivery the choice. The company found that the smaller footprint also gave it access to high-density metropolitan areas.
“PF Chang’s To Go allows guests to enjoy PF Chang’s Asian favorites in an easy and accessible way that matches their evolving on-the-go lifestyle,” said Art Kilmer, chief operating officer of PF Chang’s.
Since 2020, it has opened 15 To Go locations, most in New York City, the Chicago area, Florida and Texas.
There are three full-service PF Chang restaurants in Northern Virginia, in Tysons, Ballston and Fairfax.
The first PF Chang’s opened in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1993. It now has more than 300 locations.
The name PF Chang’s is a combination of its two founders: Paul Fleming and Philip Chiang. Chiang’s mother is credited with being the first to bring traditional Chinese dishes to America, and opened The Mandarin in San Francisco in 1962.
