May 05, 2009 // Franchising.com // Scottsdale, Ariz. – Noodles Development, LP today announced the sale of its two Nothing but Noodles restaurants in Albuquerque, New Mexico to local entrepreneur Gerald Tabet.
Mr. Tabet is a real estate developer and builder for commercial properties in and around Albuquerque and the State of New Mexico. He is also a business partner of several other QSR concepts.
"I chose to invest in Nothing but Noodles because I understand the concept's potential…the true worth of the existing stores and of the brand itself, not only in Albuquerque but everywhere," claims Tabet. "I am also very loyal to the brand, myself, as I have eaten at Nothing but Noodles weekly for the past 5-6 years and have yet to get sick of it. That in itself truly says something about a place."
Encouraging the sale of the two Albuquerque stores, located at 5011 Montgomery Blvd. and 5901 Wyoming NE, represents a constant effort by the franchisor to protect its brand and to ensure that all Nothing but Noodles customers are receiving the best possible product and service, whether on the east coast or the west.
"We look for and monitor brand consistency and customer satisfaction," claims Nothing but Noodles Co-Founder Chad Everts. "If there is any question about the efficiency of operation or level of customer satisfaction being conducted at a certain location, we fully support new ownership."
Tabet is in the very beginning stages of opening a third location, which will be located in Rio Rancho, and is also actively seeking two other strategic locations in Albuquerque. His goal is to open ten to twelve Nothing but Noodles restaurants throughout the state over the next few years, five to seven of those being in Albuquerque.
Based out of Scottsdale, AZ, Nothing but Noodles is the fresh alternative to fast casual dining, offering global taste selections from Asian Pad Thai and Beef Stroganoff to a variety of pan-seared soups, hand-tossed salads and delectable desserts.
