Fast-casual restaurant Noodles & Company has announced proposed expansion through a multi-unit franchise growth initiative in southern and southwestern regions in the US.

The chain plans to expand an off-premise oriented footprint that suits the current consumer environment.

The latest expansion will be fuelled by company locations, existing franchisees, and potential new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners.

Noodles & Company will target select designated market areas (DMAs) in the southern and southwestern markets, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Texas, for its expansion.

Recently, the company hired vice-president of franchise development John Ramsay to support the planned growth.

Ramsay said: “As a leader in the fast-casual space, Noodles & Company stands out to franchise partners because we offer an innovative menu, a competitive investment, and a brand that’s really unlike any other.
