Mustang is marking progress with multiple developments set to come to town through the
Mustang Marketplace Development east of the Walmart on State Highway 152.

Among the developments coming is Panda Express, with the development taking one of the
frontage spots in the development that has been in the works for most of 2023.

Ryan Conner, the City Planner for the City of Mustang, said Panda Express has received building
permits and have just finished selecting contractors.

“I don’t have a definite on when it’s going to start up there, but definitely everything’s ready to
go for them,” Conner said. “The permit’s ready. So, hopefully that starts soon.”

Mustang’s latest City Manager’s Report indicated the building will be approximately 1,350
square feet. The development is expected to include a drive-through and plenty of space for
parking when it is completed.

The news on Panda Express was first reported by the Mustang Times in February. Currently, the
restaurant chain has nearby locations in Yukon (1521 Garth Brooks Blvd) and at
500 S MacArthur Blvd in Oklahoma City.

The largest known building to be coming officially to Mustang Marketplace belongs to Hunker
Terrace Retail Shell. The building will include four lease units in its massive 10,010 square feet
of space.

It is also the building that is erected at the site, with masonry being installed on the exterior of
the structure. According to the City Manager’s report for September, the building is about 35%
complete as of Sept. 12.

Conner also mentioned the possibility of the site including a business dedicated to drive
through to go with the drive through window being built at the structure. That business has not
been identified yet.

In recent weeks, The Mustang Times also reported that a Chili’s Grill & Bar would be coming
into the development. Conner indicated the anticipation for Chili’s to start construction rather

That building, according to the City Manager’s Report related to the development, is expected
to be 5,136 square feet. It will be located at the Northwest corner of SH-152 and N Hunker

Chili’s is the third development to officially make plans known to the City of Mustang since the
start of the Mustang Marketplace work.

Mustang Marketplace only has two more available lots for development. One of the lots is part
of the frontage for the development between the Panda Express and Hunker Terrace Retail

Conner also mentioned the larger lot for a bigger development in the back of Mustang

Neither of those lots have any definite tenants coming as of yet.

    Hey Conner,
    Why don’t you let the people if Mustang vote in what restaurants they want brought in?
    We don’t need another Chilis!!
    Bring in something new like In & Out Burgers or a really good steakhouse?
