Last week, we reported that fifty-five Noodles & Company locations across the country would soon be shutting their doors, and wondered if the stores in West Michigan would be on the list of those set to close.

I have good news for all of you Noodles lovers, because none of the twenty-two Noodles & Company locations in Michigan will be closing.

Mike Endres, the director of marketing for Pasta Per Trio, Inc. (which owns twenty-one of the twenty-two Michigan locations) reached out to let me know that our locations are safe.

Turns out that none of the Noodles & Company locations in Michigan are corporate owned, which means that they are not on the list of those set to close.

Endres says that his company plans to develop the brand throughout the state, and noted that they opened a new location in Macomb last year, and a Holland location back in January.
