The Noodles & Company chain has kicked off 2016 with Thursday Family Nights, a website for customizing meal options, and a gluten-free cheese sauce.
According to a company press release, a new interactive website at Noodles.com makes it easier for guests to stick to their health-conscious New Year’s resolutions. The site places nutritional information directly next to each menu item, so guests know what’s in their meal; and they can customize it for their diet, health and taste requirements.
A gluten-free cheese sauce can be ordered with gluten-free fusilli or rice noodles to customize a gluten-free Wisconsin Mac and Cheese.
For busy families who don’t want to break the budget, every Thursday night in January, families will receive a free Kids Meal with the purchase of any regular entrée. The Company will also donate 5 cents for every Kids Meal ordered until September 20th to No Kid Hungry.
Noodles & Company is a fast-casual restaurant chain serving globally inspired pasta dishes such as Japanese Pan Noodles, Penne Rosa, Steak Stroganoff, Whole Grain Tuscan Fresca and Bangkok Curry. The menu also offers soups, salads and sandwiches. (My personal favorite is the Thai Curry Soup.) The 470-location chain was recognized by Parents Magazine as a Top Family Friendly Restaurant, and Health Magazine as one of America’s Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants.
