Noodles & Company will open its first Charlotte restaurant and second in North Carolina on Thursday, July 17, at 11 a.m. The restaurant is located at The Arboretum Shopping Center, 8016 Providence Road, Suite 150.

Noodles & Company’s menu is inspired by culinary traditions from around the world. From healthy to indulgent and spicy to comforting, the menu features Asian, Mediterranean, and American noodle dishes, soups, and salads.

“We’re excited about our continued growth on the east coast and in North Carolina,” says Kevin Reddy, president and CEO of Noodles & Company. “We invite the Charlotte community to come out and try one of our tasty noodle dishes that feature fresh, wholesome ingredients that are nutritionally balanced, full of flavor, and sautéed to order.”

Noodles & Company opened at the Pavilion at Duke Medical Center on June 14 and is continuing to grow in North Carolina with planned openings in Chapel Hill and Raleigh.
