Noodles & Company Makes It Easy to Feed the Family and the Office During the Holiday Rush

Noodles Introduces Square Bowls, a Convenient, Quick, Family-Style Meal

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - It's hard to find time to cook a healthy meal for the family during the holidays. Between last-minute shopping trips, holiday parties, and finding oven space among the batches of cookies, often the only meal options seem to be left-over turkey, again, or a frozen meal. Noodles & Company, the restaurant that serves noodles, soups and salads inspired from around the world, has come up with a solution -- and not just for the holidays.

Noodles has just introduced 'Square Bowls.' With this new family-style noodles and salads option, feeding a family of four or a group of 50 is no longer a challenge. Square Bowls offer the same quality as Noodles & Company's regular dishes but in a larger to-go bowl -- as the company says, "It's a bowl so large it needed corners!" Just like all Noodles dishes, Square Bowls are 100 percent customizable, which makes it a great way to ensure everyone at home, at the party or office will find something they like.

"It's hard to get a freshly made meal on the table, especially during the holiday season. And who wants the additional stress?" said Jill Preston, director of corporate communications at Noodles & Company and mother of two. "With Square Bowls, I place my order in advance and skip the line when I come to pick it up. Very easy."

Takeout food has been a growing trend in recent years. Technomic, a leading research and consulting firm for the restaurant industry, says takeout food has been growing about twice as fast as the overall restaurant industry. Square Bowls expand Noodles' takeout options to include a family-style meal that can be shared with groups of all sizes. Square Bowls are the perfect solution for the holidays, office meetings, sports team dinners or just a nice break from the usual routine.

"Our customers have been asking us for an option like this for years, so we're excited to be meeting their needs," Preston said. "And as opposed to hitting a drive thru or ordering pizza again, you feel good knowing you're providing your group a great-tasting, wholesome meal."
