About Us/History in Richmond
A History of Top Quality Cabinetry & Granite Countertops
Panda Kitchen & Bath was established in 2000 by the Huang Family in Miami, Florida. The Huang family had been in the cabinetry and granite business since the 1980s in mainland China. When the Huang family came to the U.S. in 1998, they purchased a home and visited their local retail store to inquire about kitchen and bathroom remodeling. They found that their remodeling plans were out of reach–homeowners needed an average household income of over $80,000 to afford a kitchen and bathroom upgrade.
With decades of experience in the construction industry behind them, the Huang family conducted research and discovered that they could cut the price of a kitchen and bath remodeling project by offering materials directly to their customers. Two years later, the first Panda Kitchen & Bath Expo Center was opened in Miami.
Between 2002 and 2004, by beating all prices currently available in the bathroom and kitchen remodeling market, Panda Kitchen & Bath opened a total of 11 store locations and over 100,000 square feet of warehouse space on the east coast. In 2005 and 2006, Panda Kitchen & Bath opened another 16 stores for a total of 27 store locations, and expanded its warehouse facilities to more than 500,000 square feet. At the same time, the company was able to improve its service and quality.
In 2006, Panda Kitchen & Bath made another cornerstone decision: to join the designing team in Milan, Italy named “Milano Design.”
In order to offer their quality, affordable kitchen and bath products and services nationwide, the Huang family made the decision in 2008 to franchise the Panda Kitchen & Bath concept. The result is Panda Kitchen & Bath International, LLC, based on the strong belief that those who have invested money in their own businesses will make the strongest partners for the company’s future growth.
Panda Kitchen & Bath’s philosophy is to save the customer money by owning their own manufacturing plant, thereby providing the best quality cabinets and granite countertops as well as the best service at the fairest price. The company’s goal is to reach 99.9% customer satisfaction and to allow customers to afford a quality kitchen and bath that they couldn’t afford before.
Panda Kitchen & Bath Expo of Richmond opened its doors September, 2006 and since then has remodeled countless kitchens and baths in Richmond, Midlothian, Chesterfield, Glen Allen, Short Pump, Mechanicsville, Chester, Ashland, and the surrounding areas.
