Noodles & Company Refused Service to Cop; New Information

Two employees at an Alexandria, Virginia Noodles & Company refused to serve an on-duty police officer. Noodles & Company is a popular restaurant chain in the area. According to a representative with the police union, the officer went to the Noodles & Company at 3105 Duke Street at 6:30 PM on Monday. While the officer was waiting to make her order, one of the employees reportedly said, “You better pull me off the line, because I’m not cooking for that one.”

After employees refused to serve the officer, she left.

The police union and Chief spoke with the Noodles & Company management about the situation, and they advised that they would be hanging a “We Support Blue Lives” sign in their store.

The two employees involved in the incident have since been fired.

“We have concluded the two team members in question acted inappropriately and we immediately terminated their employment,” Noodles & Company’s statement said, “We have the utmost respect for law enforcement officials and value the relationship we have built with the local Alexandria Police Department over the years.”

This situation appears to be an isolated incident with problem employees, and we would like to encourage our readers to continue to support Noodles & Company. They took swift action to correct the situation, and they are speaking in support of law enforcement.

When incidents like this have occurred in the past, we have specifically made the decision to withhold details, or the name of establishments, until we see how they handle the situation. An employer cannot control all of their employee’s conduct at any given moment, and it’s the company’s response that shows their true colors. We are glad to report that Noodles & Company has taken the appropriate actions.

Please share this update so that this business is not adversely affected by the old news on this incident.
