Noodles & Company Opens 300th Restaurant!

Noodles & Company, the restaurant brand that features a collection of dishes from around the world, announced today the opening of its 300th system-wide restaurant. The 300th restaurant is located in Waterloo, Iowa, on Crossroads Boulevard.

To commemorate the landmark event, Noodles & Company invited hundreds of loyal fans to form a huge “300” on the ground and an aerial photo was taken from a helicopter. The photo was staged at Valley Lutheran School, and for every participant present, $1 was donated to the school.

“We’re thrilled about this achievement and the opening of our 300th restaurant,” says Kevin Reddy, CEO and chairman of Noodles & Company. “It’s an exciting time at Noodles, and we’re so happy to have celebrated with new and loyal fans from Waterloo and around the state. We look forward to our continued growth and introducing Noodles to more neighborhoods in Iowa and across the U.S.”

Noodles’ 300th opening marks the seventh restaurant to open in Iowa and the 15th restaurant to open in 2012, with more than 25 additional restaurants planned to open by the end of the year.

Iowa has been a focus for Noodles for several years due to the brand’s strong presence in surrounding markets and the vibrancy of the state’s economy. Noodles plans to open a second Des Moines location later this fall and currently employs nearly 150 people in the state.

As one of the industry’s fastest growing and most successful restaurant concepts, Noodles has tripled in size in the last seven years. With positive same-store sales in 25 of the last 26 quarters, the expansion in Iowa is evidence of the brand’s success.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Thanks Again!

    Bartol starts on Wednesday! Thanks for again turning over all the rocks for us. - FH Client  Thanks Again!
  • Amy is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does.

    Amy contacted me in a time where I was unhappy where I was but wasn’t doing anything to change it. She was very informative and if she didn’t have the information at hand, she got it. She revamped an old resume making it more about achievements than responsibilities. She coached me on interview tactics before multiple interviews and was there to talk about them afterwards. Every conversation we had felt more like a friendship than business. She is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does. She also helped boost my confidence through the entire interview progress. Whatever she is doing, she must be doing it right because I got the job! Thanks Amy for a life changing experience.
    Sincerely,
    Shawn Ware

  • I would 100% recommend Ross

    I cannot begin to thank Ross and Karen enough! without the two of them I wouldn't have even known about the position! The interview process was quick, easy and simple. After only a short week I was in a position I knew I was going to love forever and it was all thanks to them! Ross has been so good about following up with me even after being hired, asking how my experience has been, what hours I'm working etc. and to top it all off Ross even sent me a gift card thanking me for working with him. I would 100% recommend Ross to anyone looking for a career in the industry!
    Cheers,
