A Panda Express restaurant is likely coming to Gainesville.

The Asian fast-food eatery is applying for permits to open a restaurant at a location off Pearl Nix Parkway, Gainesville Planning Manager Matt Tate said.

The location is between Captain D’s and the corner where Folks Southern Kitchen sat until its 2016 demolition to make way for a Golden Corral that has yet to be constructed.

Panda Express has not responded to requests for comment about the plans.
