More and more businesses are moving into West Yakima. Panda Express is set to open next month near Walmart.
Construction on that restaurant is well-underway. Several of the lots stood near Walmart sat vacant until recently. Our news partner KIMA Action News has learned a zoning permit was recently approved for a coffee shop in that area as well.  The city planning department says the business has yet to apply for a building permit but new development is always welcome. Panda Express is expected to open next month.
