Noodles & Company will open its second Charlotte restaurant in the new Southborough urban community between the Dilworth and South End neighborhoods on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. The restaurant is located at 2201 South Boulevard at Magnolia Avenue.

As part of its grand opening celebration, Noodles & Company will host a post-opening fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 6 to benefit the Dowd YMCA. The Dowd YMCA is committed to the spirit, mind and body of their youth, families and community. From 5 to 8 p.m., 100 percent of sales will be used to support the YMCA’s youth, teen and senior programming.

“We’re excited about our continued growth in North Carolina and are pleased to be able to support the local community through the Dowd YMCA,” says Kevin Reddy, president and CEO of Noodles & Company. “If you’ve never been to a Noodles & Company, we invite you to come out and try one of our fresh, sautéed-to-order noodle dishes, soups and salads.”
