1 min read

Fast-casual restaurant chain Noodles & Co. of Broomfield, Colorado, announced plans to expand to Arkansas and Texas through franchise agreements.

The company said new franchisee Paven Sandhu of Rogers and her husband and business partner Navi Sandhu have signed an agreement to open four new restaurants across Rogers, Bentonville and Fayetteville.

It’s not the first franchise concept the Sandhus have brought to northwest Arkansas. In 2022, they opened the state’s first Culver’s location in the region.

In Texas, restaurateur Syed Ahmad signed an agreement to bring 20 Noodles & Company restaurants to the Dallas market.

“This is a huge step for our franchise efforts at Noodles & Company and we’re confident our new partners and their management teams will successfully lead and grow the brand in these markets,” John Ramsay, vice president of franchise development at Noodles & Co., said in a statement.

Noodles & Co. has more than 460 locations in 30 states. It offers a variety of Asian and Italian noodle bowls, stuffed pasta, macaroni and cheese bowls, and more.
