Noodles & Company currently has no interest-bearing debt. If Noodles & Company expands to open a Hawaiian location, it will require a $300,000 loan. Noodles & Company has found a bank that will loan it the money on a 7% note payable. The company believes that, at least for the first few years, sales at its Hawaiian location will be $250,000, and that all expenses (including cost of goods sold) will follow the same patterns as the current locations.
