Noodles & Company opens new Charlotte restaurant

Noodles & Company has opened its newest Charlotte restaurant at 8156 S. Tryon St.

The fast casual noodles restaurant opened Dec. 12 and will operate 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday, and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. This is the company’s fourth restaurant in Charlotte.

Noodles & Company’s menu consists of more than 25 customizable, quickly made pasta and noodle dishes. The chain earlier this year said it was removing all artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and sweeteners from its core menu.

The new 2,951-square-foot Charlotte restaurant can accommodate 72 guests inside and 24 outside on its patio. The new shop offers $5 meals for kids under 10, as well as catering service with buffet-style meals for 20 or more people.

This month the newest Noodles & Company will give away a $5 bonus card for every $25 gift card purchased in restaurants or online at noodles.com. The bonus cards can be redeemed in January.

Noodles & Company, based in Colorado, operates more than 470 restaurants in the U.S.
