“Noodles & Company runs a different model compared to other franchisors. They’re not in the fast food industry, but are in the restaurant business, and that’s what makes them special. With so many fresh ingredients and SKUs, it’s not as systematic.”

Mike Lamb Franchise Partner & CEO of River City Restaurant

“One of my biggest takeaways from my franchise career is the importance of relationships and human connection. People are our greatest asset and that value is instilled in Noodles & Company’s culture. ”
