Guests coming into town? Not sure what to feed them? Don’t stress. We’re introducing Square Bowls, a family-style noodles and salads option for feeding a family of four to a group of 50. Just like all our dishes, Square Bowls are 100 percent customizable, which makes them a great way to ensure everyone at home, at the party or the office will find something they like. Check out http://noodles.com/squarebowls/ for more information.
A couple was arrested for not paying a mandatory 18 percent gratuity at a Pub in Bethlehem, Pa., reported David Chang for NBC Philadelphia. Since when were tips mandatory? Our restaurants have a no-tip policy, because we don’t think you should have to pay extra for good service – it should come regardless.
Anyway, the couple is scheduled to appear in court next month. We wish them luck!
Crazy, huh? That kids would give up their candy for noodles? We didn’t even have to fight them for it. We just told parents that if they bring in their kids and some of their leftover Halloween candy, we’d give them a free, small bowl of noodles. And it was a hit. We think it’s cool that kids actually were excited to swap their candy for something healthier. At this point you might wondering or questioning how healthy noodles can be – in one word, very.
Did you know that 16 of our dishes are 400 calories or less? It’s the truth. We also have 14 fresh veggies on our menu, so add some broccoli to your kid’s Mac & Cheese next time. They might actually like it, and you’ll feel like a better parent. In fact, you can customize almost anything to your liking at Noodles. Add a protein. Make it more spicy. Make it less spicy. Sub Whole Grain Linguine. The list goes on. Okay, we’re done lecturing.
Now check out some photos from the event.
