Swipe West for Pep-Pep


Sichuan Hot Chicken isn’t just the latest delicious dish to come from Panda Express.

It’s the first time a national chain has brought the Sichuan peppercorn to American cuisine. And we wanted Panda’s passionate fanbase to be a part of that.

WE CREATED WORLD'S WIDEST WEBSITE:11,888 MILES WIDE.


Yea…It’s very wide…And Panda fans were asked to help him cross it, one swipe at a time.

Enter Pep-Pep the Sichuan Wonderpepper, our spicy Sichuan “spokespepper.” Pep-Pep had one goal, and one goal only: To get from Chengdu, China to Rosemead, California on the widest mobile site ever made…

CONNECTED WITH OUR FANS


Paid stories, organic posts, and banner ads drove people to the mobile experience, where they were rewarded for their swipes with coupons, sticker packs, and more. Other banners featuring our spicy boy drove online orders.

LAUNCHED AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON


We launched the site at San Diego Comic-Con, where convention-goers got Pep-Pep started on his journey while snacking on the spicy new dish.

Panda Express Fans Everywhere Helped Pep-Pep.
