Running red and running out of cash. They need to close more stores and fast.

Its a neat concept. but not one that is likely to go mainstream.

Unfortunately Noodles suffered from being coronated as the next Chipotle prematurely. Even after this giant decline, the stock still has a ridiculously high P/E.

Chipotle has become king simply because its food is healthy, cheap, fast and delicious. An argument could be made that Noodles' product has none of these qualities.

Ordinary (or maybe even sub-par) food quality plus overly positive expectation for market expansion make NDLS a poor investment. The management really has to try harder on improving their service or renovating their business model to beat the market.

Noodles has found a popular fast food segment that had not been previously wrapped in a chain concept. The low cost per serving should secure profitability for Noodles, even if management and execution is only mediocre.

I've eaten here, and I love Noodles. The stores that I've been in are all clean and look 'new' (they won't need to renovate for a long time), they're kid friendly (my son LOVES Noodles!), the food is great, service is great, wait times are minimal. While their financial sheet isn't fully fleshed out, they have a higher margin vs. industry, a solid expansion plan, and I think they'll grow well in the next 5 years.

Given the similarities to already massively successful casual dining chains like Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread, Noodles & Company is a restaurant chain that is still very much in the early stages of growth. With a diverse menu and attractive price points, the company should find continued success as it looks to rapidly increase its store count in the coming years.

Huge potential to grow and enter the price range of a Panera or Chipotle, but in the immediate term, there's going to be some volatility to ride out

The restaurants do well because the service is friendly & responsive, your order comes out quickly, and the food is remarkably good for the money you pay (like at Chipotle) -- Kottke.org
