We are confident that the Noodles’ unique brand strengths and brand activation strategy will resonate in this new market and our team is ready to support Carlos as he opens these new restaurants.”
Company officials say the new restaurants will come to the area during the next three years, with the first scheduled to open its doors by the Fall of 2022.
