Noodles Kicks Off 2020 With New Menu Additions

Posted at 8:48 AM, Jan 24, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — Grand Rapids-based Pasta Per Trio, the Michigan franchisee of Noodles & Company (Noodles) (NASDAQ:NDLS), known for serving classic noodle, Zoodle and Caulifloodle dishes from around the world, today announced the addition of Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein to its menu. The new dish is accompanied by a returning guest favorite, Zucchini Shrimp Scampi. Both menu items are available now.

Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein bursts with authentic, bold flavors and is made of lo mein noodles sauteed with snap peas, Napa and red cabbage in a slightly sweet orange sauce topped with grilled chicken, green onions, black sesame seeds and cilantro. Grilled chicken offers a lighter alternative to the typical breaded orange chicken options served at other restaurants, but it doesn’t sacrifice any flavor. As always, guests can swap in Zoodles (zucchini noodles) for a healthy boost.

“The new Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein showcases the fresh, tangy flavors true to the original Chinese orange chicken while steering clear of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives,” said Nick Graff, executive chef at Noodles & Company. “With our growing selection of worldly and light options, there is truly something on the menu for everyone. And now with Noodles Rewards, guests can easily customize and place their order from any mobile device and then skip the line at pick-up, all while earning delicious rewards for future visits.”

Noodles guests will also be thrilled to learn the restaurant’s best-selling Zoodles dish is returning. Zucchini Shrimp Scampi, featuring shrimp in a light scampi sauce with roasted zucchini and Roma tomatoes, topped with Parmesan cheese, parsley and fresh lemon, is perfect for guests with healthy eating resolutions in the New Year. The tangy dish debuted in February 2019 and is now available with either penne noodles or Zoodles.

“We’re excited to add Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein to our Asian noodle offerings, and to bring back a guest favorite in Zucchini Shrimp Scampi,” noted Tom Shepard, Vice President of Pasta Per Trio. “We think guests will love both dishes, as well as the option to customize the dishes to their individual dietary needs and flavor preferences.”

Starting today, guests can try out the new dishes at the Lansing area Noodles & Company restaurants, located on East Grand River and West Grand River in Okemos.
