Noodles & Company Celebrates National Mac & Cheese Day with Free Mac & Cheese on July 14

In honor of National Mac and Cheese Day, Noodles & Company [noodles.com] (NASDAQ:NDLS), serving classic noodle and pasta dishes inspired by flavors from around the world, today announced an offer for all NoodlesREWARDS [noodles.com] mac-loving members to snag a free small bowl of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese with the purchase of a regular entrée on Saturday, July 14. This delicious deal is available at both Lansing area Noodles restaurants, located on East Grand River and West Grand River in Okemos.

 

“Our Wisconsin Mac & Cheese is a favorite of guests, so what better way to celebrate National Mac and Cheese Day than with a free bowl?” said Tom Shephard, Vice President of Pasta Per Trio, the Grand Rapids-based Michigan franchisee of Noodles & Company [noodles.com] (NASDAQ:NDLS).  “As with all of our menu items, the Wisconsin Mac & Cheese sauce contains nothing artificial, which gives our guests even more to love about it.”

 

At Noodles & Company, there is plenty of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese to go around. The restaurant chain serves almost 8 million bowls of its famous dish nationwide every year, using more than 4 million pounds of elbow macaroni and 3.1 million pounds of cheese sauce. For a lighter option, guests can swap out traditional elbow noodles with zoodles for only $0.75. Zoodles are noodles made from fresh zucchinis spiralized in-house daily. Not only are the zucchini noodles packed with vitamin C and potassium, they are also gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian, and have 90 percent fewer calories and carbs than a regular portion of elbow noodles. A small bowl of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese made with zoodles has 230 calories and a regular-sized bowl has 450. Any guest who orders a bowl of zucchini noodles and doesn’t feel the zoodle love can get a replacement traditional noodle dish at no additional cost.

 

For adventurous Mac-lovers looking for even more flavor, Noodles & Company offers three other creamy and delectable items on its World Famous Macs menu: the aromatic Truffle Mac, spicy Buffalo Chicken Mac and tangy BBQ Pork Mac. While these options cannot be substituted for the free bowl of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese, they can be ordered as an entrée for twice the cheesy goodness.

 

This July 14 National Mac & Cheese Day Wisconsin Mac & Cheese giveaway is exclusive to NoodlesREWARDS members. Guests who are not yet NoodlesREWARDS members can sign up by Friday, July 13 to get their offer for a free small bowl of Wisconsin Mac & Cheese with the purchase of a regular entrée on Saturday, July 14. To sign up, download the NoodlesREWARDS app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or sign up online at noodles.com/rewards [noodles.com].
