Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
Noodles & Company
Noodles & Company was founded in 1995 and had a few years of success before their revenue started to decline. People just didn’t want to get in on the noodle buzz as much after the early 2000s. The straw that broke the camel’s back though, was a data breach in 2016 that compromised the security of debit and credit cards at Noodles & Company locations all over the states. The data breach ended up costing the company $11 million (yikes) and they had to close 10% of their locations in 2018 with more to come this year.
