Noodles & Company, the quick-casual, globally inspired noodle restaurant that serves a balanced menu of freshly sautéed Asian, Mediterranean and American cuisine, will open its third restaurant in the Richmond area on Friday, July 31 at 11 a.m. The new restaurant will be in the Westchester Commons in Midlothian, located at 15785 Westchester Commons.

As part of its grand opening celebration, Noodles & Company will host a pre-opening fundraiser on Thursday, July 30 to benefit the Midlothian Family YMCA. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., one hundred percent of sales at the new Noodles & Company will be donated to the Midlothian Family YMCA. The money raised will support the organization’s Annual Giving campaign. In 2009, the Midlothian YMCA distributed over $500,000 to children and families in the Midlothian community.

“It’s a priority for us to give back to our local communities, and we are pleased to be able to support the Midlothian Family YMCA through our grand opening activities,” said Kevin Reddy, president, chairman and CEO of Noodles & Company. “Come join us on July 30 for a bowl of noodles, soup or salad to support a great organization.”
