As promised when Noodles & Company opened its third Massachusetts location back in the fall, the chain is growing quickly in New England.
Parent company Hamra Enterprises announced today, via a press release, plans to open five new locations in the next six months. Westwood, Franklin, Woburn, Medford, and Seabrook, N.H. will all get a noodle shop to call their own.
With the tagline "Your World Kitchen," Noodles & Company sells make-your-own bowls of the versatile foodstuff with multicultural influences, plus soups, salads, and sandwiches. The chain is currently part of the culinary landscape of Shrewsbury, Burlington, and Nashua, N.H. The Shrewsbury branch serves beer and wine, and all three locations offer catering packages.
While those bells and whistles aren't promised for the new franchises yet, the company says it will bring dozens of jobs to the region. Hamra Enterprises is now accepting applications for managers of the new franchises, according to a handful of Craigslist posts.
