“We were thrilled to partner with Pono for Cooking Panda’s first brand activation. We created a unique spin on a ‘pop-up’ restaurant which was a great way to translate the digital world of Cooking Panda with a tangible, engaging event. Guests loved the experience and trying our food firsthand,” says Ross Cimino, CRO of Render Media, Cooking Panda’s parent company.
Chef Makani reimagined seven of Cooking Panda’s viral hits in her signature style for this event.
“We all bring our flavor and our story to the table and that’s where the magic comes from and that’s what I live for,” Chef Makani said. “We were so excited to add our flavor to Cooking Panda’s recipes for the pop-up.”
Following the success of the pop-up restaurant, LA-based digital media firm Render Media is planning more experiential activation to bring the digital brand experience to life in new and engaging ways.

About Pono Kitchen + Bar:
Pono means “to do things the right way” in Hawaiian. For Chef Makani, that means fresh, never frozen organic beef from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows; organic ingredients from local farmers markets; and fresh-cut organic french fries that are not only good for you, but are good for the planet.
