A noodle business is heading to the Grand Strand as South Carolina’s premier noodle business and will open on January 19.
“We are very excited and energetic to bring this brand to South Carolina,” said Phillipe Saad, area franchisee of Myrtle Beach Noodles & Company.
The has restaurants over 450 locations in 34 different states across the country. However, Myrtle Beach Noodles & Company will only be the second state in the Southeast in which the franchise has expanded with five locations in Florida.
Saad, who is also president of SA Restaurant Groups Inc., has nearly two decades of restaurant experience in the Myrtle Beach area, helping the Jersey Mike’s franchise get started in the area in 2004.
“Adding Noodles & Company to our group and to the market is a big deal,” Saad said.
Although Noodles & Company’s specialty is noodles, Saad said the restaurant makes its main focus unique from the different brands.
“It brings in flavors from different parts of the world,” Saad said. “We have an Asian flavor, an Italian flavor, American flavors. It caters to different types of diets, from vegan to keto… It reaches every part of the market segment, market tastes and individual needs.
Although this is the first Noodles & Company that Saad will oversee, he has had experience with franchising before – as a regular customer.
“I loved visiting their store when I was traveling,” Saad said. “Every time I stopped, I tried different dishes and each time I was amazed. I like food. I love to eat and I love the taste of it. They have a wide variety of food that I love.
Noodles & Company’s menu features both familiar and globally inspired dishes from around the world that will satisfy a range of taste buds. Noodles & Company’s offers pasta dishes stuffed like Roasted Garlic Cream Tortelloni, which is a cheese-filled tortelloni in a creamy roasted garlic and onion sauce with zucchini, mushrooms and spinach and is finished with MontAmoré cheese and parsley. The menu also offers classic noodle dishes such as prawn scampi, butter noodles, spaghetti and meatballs.
