Went to Chipotle's Website & Then Noodles To Compare an Online Order.
I went with the lowest end prices for Chipotle. Veggie Burrito, Chips & Salsa, Small Soda... Went to Noodles, dialed in Penne Rosa added Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Ordered a Caesar Side Salad & Added a Regular Soda & the order still came out cheaper than Chipotle's.
Consumers are privy to prices. A lot of 'wiggle' room here for Noodles to strengthen their balance sheet, yet still stay under or within the competition.
Yup, me too... the food here is awesome....nobody (fast food wise) compares, not no way, not no how......someday this baby is gunna' go and leave the shorts in the dust nibblin' on their worthless Big Macs!!....this my honest belief as well.....giddyup!!
I agree. I keep adding, too. Several new stores opened here in NWIndiana -- and they are always packed to the gills. They do well in these smaller markets where there is less competition and choice, and people are flocking to them for their value priced, wholesome dishes.
