Restaurant remains closed

Panda Kitchen – located at 902 Main in Sabetha – remains dark and the “Open” sign unlit after closing at the end of January. 

Even though their doors closed a little more than a month ago, the rumors continue to circulate around Sabetha about the status of Panda Kitchen and if the Chinese restaurant is going to be closed permanently.

According to Panda Kitchen owner Julie Yang, they continue to look for new management at their Sabetha location after closing at the end of January due to lack of proper management.

“We are looking for new management and there is interest, but they do not want to move to Sabetha,” Yang said.

As for the four employees that the Sabetha Panda Kitchen employed, Yang said they have moved.

“The employees have moved and are looking for new jobs,” she said.

Yang said if new management isn’t found soon, they will put the building up for sale.

“If we haven’t found anyone, then we will sell the building,” she said. “Probably in three to six months.”
