Noodles & Company closing Medford franchise

MEDFORD — The local Noodles & Company franchise on Riverside Avenue will close along with four other Massachusetts locations, according to a company spokeswoman.

“Our long-standing franchise partners, Hamra, made the difficult decision to close their New England Noodles & Company restaurants,” Danielle Moore said in a statement, adding, “We appreciate the patronage of area residents and guests that have dined at our Boston-area restaurants over the years, as well as Hamra’s dedicated team members.”

The 491 Riverside Ave. Noodles & Company opened in late November 2015 along with other food providers Panera Bread and Smashburger, side-by-side on Riverside Avenue.

Noodles & Company operates nearly 500 locations in the United States. Moore said the other franchises scheduled for closing are located in Burlington, Franklin, Medford, Westwood and Woburn.
