LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A new Panda Express Chinese food restaurant is set to open by the end of the week in Las Cruces.
Crews were still putting the finishing touches on the new location Wednesday on University Avenue next to the NMSU campus bookstore.
"People get tired of the same food they have on campus so Panda Express would be something cool and new," said NMSU student Jason Estrada.
Panda Express plans to hire mostly students to staff the restaurant.
The grand opening will be this Friday at 10 a.m.
