Situated to the north of Sky Harbor airport, the COFCO Center brings a taste of China to Phoenix starting with the traditional Chinese-style architecture and authentic Chinese garden on the grounds. The garden includes replicas of ancient landmarks from five Chinese cities.
Inside, the building hosts the Chinese Cultural Center, the Super L Ranch Market with its heavy emphasis on Chinese products, plus restaurants Szechwan Palace and Beijing Garden Chinese. In case you still doubt its Chinese authenticity, COFCO stands for “China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation,” and is a state-owned corporation.
