Franchising

Noodles & Company is growing and we are looking for exceptional franchise partners to join our family!

Our family is made up of approximately 450 restaurants and more than 8,000 passionate team members. Since 1995, Noodles & Company has been serving Noodles and the flavors you know and love, to new ones you’re about to discover for the first time. We truly have something for everyone and the convenient and reliable experience we provide our guests is one of our primary differentiators.

We are living in unique times, and our restaurants and franchisees are navigating the Pandemic extremely well, contrary to many others in the restaurant and hospitality industry.

“Noodles & Company’s off-premise capabilities and digital strength uniquely position the brand to meet the needs of today’s fast casual environment and take advantage of long-term consumer trends,” said Dave Boennighausen, Chief Executive Officer. “While we continue to navigate the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are able to serve great tasting healthy food conveniently when and where guests want it. Our operational strength has been a significant contributor to our sales recovery and I am proud and thankful for our incredible team members for their commitment to fulfill our mission to always nourish and inspire every team member, guest and community we serve.”
