Improve the Customer Experience
Noodles & Company has created a seamless customer experience using industry-leading technology that gives guests control of their dining experience. With a loyalty app, online ordering, direct delivery, and third-party delivery options, guests can get Noodles their way, any day.
Our popular loyalty app allows members to order ahead, rack up rewards, and score member-only perks like a free entrée on their birthdays. This helps drive customers through our franchise partners’ doors, as they can earn points every time they dine with us. With 3.8 million users and counting, the Noodles loyalty program has been named one of the best in the biz by Newsweek.
The Noodles & Company franchise was well-positioned to pivot when customer-demand called for contactless food ordering options. Guests can order ahead and quickly pick up their meals from a takeout tower, eliminating their need to interact with employees. This method also reduces labor strain, allowing your team to focus on other tasks.
Your Noodles & Company franchise can also offer delivery and leave the meal at the guests’ door. Perfect for those who want to stay safe, and those who simply don’t want a stranger to see them in a robe, our delivery options are popular methods of ordering.
