DETROIT (WWJ) – A restaurant that’s especially popular during the lunch hour might be downsizing across the U.S., but metro Detroit locations are safe.

Fast-casual restaurant Noodles and Company recently announced that it is closing 55 of its 510 stores nationwide in hopes of improving overall performance.

The company has yet to detail which locations will be closing, but reports indicate that many locations in jeopardy have just opened in the past few years. A spokesperson told WWJ that all locations in Metro Detroit are safe, and the company is even considering expanding in the area.

The closures are expected to take place by mid-2017. It’s unclear how many employees will be affected.

Noodles and Company — which offers international and American noodle dishes, soups, salads and pasta — operates stores in 35 states, including Michigan.
