“The McAllen restaurant marks the debut of Pei Wei’s first new-build prototype, featuring an entirely new look that has been a huge hit with guests during our first month of business,” said CEO J. Hedrick. “The new prototype has enabled us to provide our guests with an improved experience. In addition to fresh new menu offerings and an updated restaurant design, we have made the take-out process easier and more convenient for our guests. We look forward to celebrating this exciting debut with the community on Friday.”

The 2,047-square-foot restaurant’s front of house has digital menu boards, 100% reclaimed wood wall finishes, decorative steel accents, a larger-than-life mural of real Pei Wei wok chefs and the integration of the brand’s new tiger logo. LED lighting accentuates different seating areas throughout the dining room, which hosts multi-colored booths.

Convenience is a substantial area of focus in Pei Wei’s new prototype. For take-out orders, guests can check the status of their order on a display screen that updates in real time and pick up their order from a new self-serve pick-up station.

A special “Grab-N-Go” refrigerated cooler was installed for a wider selection of bottled beverages. Additional drinks include: Blue Sky craft fountain soda (made with 100% cane sugar), local kombucha and an updated beer, wine and sake lineup.

McAllen’s new Pei Wei restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
