WICHITA — Colorado-based Noodles is scouting Wichita for possible restaurant sites.
"We are absolutely looking at sites in Wichita," says Jill Preston, director of public relations.
In "the state of Kansas in general, we've had a lot of growth," she says.
Noodles recently opened in Lawrence, and the chain is doubling its presence in the Kansas City area.
"Wichita makes a lot of sense for us," Preston says.
She says the chain looks for college and urban settings.
"We are, obviously, looking for communities that are growing," Preston says.
The chain is, of course, known for its noodles.
"You can get anything from pad Thai to mac and cheese . . . to wonderful Mediterranean dishes," Preston says. "There's really nothing else quite like it in the city."
There also are soups and salads.
"There's a bit of something for everyone," Preston says.
