Kevin Reddy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Noodles & Company, remarked "While our second quarter results fell short of our expectations, we made significant progress with regard to long-term investments in key initiatives, including catering and local relationship marketing. Our team's efforts and initiatives are resonating with guests, resulting in a solid finish to the second quarter and a positive start to the third quarter, as our comparable restaurants sales have increased to 1.3% quarter to date. We believe these ongoing initiatives, combined with the core strength of our brand have us well positioned to build on this momentum through the balance of 2014 and into 2015."
