Noodles & Company is closing 55 restaurants in an effort to improve the chain's financial standing. Will Kalamazoo and Portage Noodles locations be on the list?

So far the company is tight-lipped about what stores they will be closing.

WMAQ in Chicago reports the closures include

roughly one in 10 of the 510 total company-operated storefronts, the locations being shuttered are ones that “significantly” underperformed compared to the company’s restaurant average....Many of restaurants that will be shut down were opened in the last two to three years in newer markets, the company said, although exact locations have yet to be released.

Noodles & Company has area locations on Westnedge Ave in Portage and West Main Street in Kalamazoo. There are 14 other Michigan cities with Noodles including a Midland location that just opened last fall.
