About Us

Our Story

Since 1995, our mission at Noodles & Company has been to nourish and inspire every team member, guest and community we serve. All these years later, these core values remain at the heart of everything we do. From our menu to our service to the way we do business, it’s our fresh, unexpected, human perspective that sets us apart. We call this Uncommon Goodness. And it’s in everything we do.

With more than 450 restaurants in 26 states and over 8,000 team members, we were named one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity by Forbes two years in a row. And we have been recognized by the Denver Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work. We believe these successes are based on our unique and caring culture that makes everyone who walks through our doors feel welcome and appreciated.

Our Food

Creating exceptional mealtime experiences – at a great value – is our passion. From traditional and contemporary dishes to our own culinary creations like premium stuffed Tortellonis and innovative LEANguini, our freshly prepared recipes feature individuality, creativity and the flavorful flare of cuisines from around the globe.

From Penne Rosa to Japanese Pan Noodles, Med Salad and our world-famous Wisconsin Mac & Cheese, we use only the finest, most wholesome ingredients. Every entrée is prepared fresh and made to order. Our abundant menu is filled with bright, lively and comfortable flavors sure to satisfy any craving and nearly every dietary lifestyle or preference.

our Journey

From the beginning, we have committed ourselves to serving fresh food, fresh ingredients and a fresh perspective of caring for our guests, our team members and our communities. We truly do believe there is nothing that can bring people together – or make the world a better place – quite like a bowl of noodles.

As we continue to grow, we are taking on key initiatives across our company to support a brighter future. Our impact report delves into some of these areas such as curating a menu filled with fresh and exciting new flavors; activating industry-leading people benefits; and some of the ways we can better care for our communities – and our planet – we call home.

We’re excited and look forward to creating even more meaningful change. And we’ve found the best way to do that begins with Uncommon Goodness.
