There is no shortage of chain restaurants in Sioux Falls.  Within a few months we'll have a Noodles & Company opening in the old CiCi's Pizza location at 57th and Louise and also a Five Guys Burgers and Fries at 10th and Minnesota.  The Sioux Falls Business Journal is reporting that now we'll be getting a new Chinese restaurant.

Panda Express will be one of three tenants in a strip mall that will be replacing the Sinclair gas station that closed in front of the Empire Mall.  The other businesses include Mattress Firm and The Vitamin Shoppe.

The project should be done this fall.

Good luck to these businesses who are entering a market already saturated with Chinese restaurants, mattress stores and nutrition stores.  We can't say we don't have choices.
