ABOUT NOODLE BOX


ABOUT NOODLE BOX MISSION STATEMENT

HISTORY

THE EXPERIENCE

At Noodle Box we believe that by embracing growth and development within our franchise system, we will empower our people (franchisees, their staff and all internal support staff) to promote strong profitable growth, provide customers with the highest quality fresh and healthy noodle based meals, and deliver excellent service through highly trained and motivated teams.

Noodle Box was founded by Josh James and David Milne in 1996. Legend has it the two young entrepreneurs were on a world trip where they discovered ice cream being served in a convenient and classy box, and South East Asia where they experienced the exotic, fresh flavours of the local cuisine. On their return to Melbourne they decided the time was right to combine the two. The first Noodle Box flavours were served piping hot at the flagship store in Chapel Street, Melbourne, the retail and fashion heart of the city. The Chapel Street store was a resounding success, and in 2002 Noodle Box began offering franchises. Since then, Noodle Box has been expanded to become the fastest growing Noodle Franchise in Australia with a combination of both Overseas born and Australian born Business Owners, staff and Head Office employees.

The Noodle Box experience is about sharing our passion for healthy, fresh, authentic food, delivered with style, in a warm and friendly environment.

VISION Noodle Box will strive to constantly evolve and provide the latest trends in the industry, by believing in the absolute importance of customer satisfaction and service excellence, while continuing to develop innovative food of the highest quality, which will be ultimately recognised by our customers as the brand of choice for Asian food in Australia.

We are passionate about creating memorable food and service experiences for our customers. These are enhanced via the theatre of our Noodle Cooks in sleek stainless steel open kitchens, to the warmth of the timbers of our interiors and custom made furniture, to the fragrant aromas emanating from the fresh produce, to our friendly owners who greet each customer with a welcoming Noodle Box smile.


ABOUT NOODLE BOX We are passionate about rewarding our franchisee partners, like you, by assisting you in setting goals and milestones for yourself, your staff and your business. By having a plan you empower yourself to achieve your own goals and manage your own performance so you can easily measure whether you are getting the best out of yourself and your business. These experiences and principles are the foundation of the original Noodle Box store that Dave and Josh created in 1996.

FRANCHISING Following our early success, and the 10 stores that followed, Noodle Box began franchising in 2002. Since then, we have expanded to become the fastest growing noodle franchise network in Australia, with 78 stores nationally. Today, our team of passionate and experienced trainers, food lovers and dedicated hospitality, marketing and business professionals operate the Noodle Box Group.

We combine our knowledge and passion of the industry, with yours, to set mutual objectives and common goals. By establishing your own work ethic, setting your own agendas and building strong teams you enable winning partnerships to be born and we collectively become stronger and more successful. We are passionate about the food industry and our continued growth. By becoming a franchisee we welcome you to be an integral, driving force and inspiration to the brands ongoing development and success.

ABOUT NOODLE BOX 10 INGREDIENTS TO “KNOW IT. LOVE IT” 1. PASSION

4. MANAGEMENT SKILLS

6. TEAM ATTITUDE

Passion for the brand and for fresh, healthy food. We are looking for people who will add value to the group and help us grow and improve.

The ability for you to manage your team is paramount to success. You must be able to get the most from your staff, keep them motivated and be willing to provide career paths. You are an ‘Employer of Choice’.

Being involved in a franchise means sometimes working for the greater good. A successful franchisee builds a team that works with the group for the good of the group. Franchising has team rules which when exercised work harmoniously. We’re all about building great teams and we encourage you to create your own winning team. This ends up benefiting everyone in the group by ensuring a consistency is being delivered all over Australia.

2. GOALS By setting goals and reaching milestones you empower yourself to get results. Results, ambition and desire drive motivation, which in turn provide you and your employees a sense of satisfaction and reward.

3. FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT The ability to finance your franchise needs to include both the initial set up cost and ongoing working capital to assist in the steady growth of your business.

5. WORK ETHIC We are looking for people who are ready to roll up their sleeves, make the most of each day and build a successful business and home–life for themselves and their families. We believe that the Noodle Box brand cannot do all the work. Your local area marketing initiatives, connection with your community, personal drive and working in and on the business are the keys to being successful.

7. ACCOUNTABILITY Accountability is key to the success for a franchise network. We look for people, and encourage you to as well, who are accountable for every one of their actions and their staff.


8. A BUSINESS PLAN

10. DESIRE TO CONSTANTLY IMPROVE

We are looking for franchise partners who have done their research and know what they need to do to succeed. A business plan is essential, not just for obtaining finance, but as a plan for what needs to be done for a business to succeed. It is the blueprint for success and enables you to set and achieve goals that enable you to reward yourself and your staff. It also lets you know when you’re under performing and where you need to improve.

We’re committed to continuous improvement that is why we focus on training, coaching and educating our employees and partners. We encourage you and your team to re–educate and train as well, as the Noodle Box philosophy is “the more you know, the more you grow”.

9. ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE The ability for you to listen to your staff, customers and partners is very important. Being able to express your goals and instructions is also a key part of getting the most from your staff, suppliers and community.

SYSTEMS, SERVICES & SUPPORT NEW STORE – DEVELOPMENT & BUILD Building your store is a process that has been perfected over the last 16 years. We partner with award winning designers and speciality shop fitter builders to enable a seamless program in the construction of all Noodle Box stores. During the store building process, Noodle Box will provide a project manager to look after your store build. The project manager will be your main point of contact and perform the following functions: • Liaison on the proposed design plans and layout of the store; • Provide a detailed build schedule allowing you to plan for the hand over and store opening; • Handle all details for applying to local council for permits with regard to building regulations and health and safety standards;

CLEAN LINES All our stores are fitted out with stainless steel kitchens and bench tops to achieve a fresh and clean look. This ensures that your store not only looks good, but also maintains the highest health and safety standards.

RAW TONES Natural timber, exposed chip board, raw concrete, recycled timber fence palings & brick walls - These materials help to create an environment that feels like it has been there for a long time and therefore authentic & original. Juxtaposed against these raw materials are stainless steel, black tile, red metal screens, stenciled graphics and pendants that add an urban edge to the space.


OPEN KITCHEN

VILLAGE FEEL

The kitchen theatre of our noodle chefs is paramount to the Noodle Box experience. This provides an honest and open approach to the preparation of our fresh and healthy meals and reinforces our Asian influence. Customers with a passion for food marvel at watching the noodle chefs in action. This has been a popular ingredient contributing to the success of Noodle Box that our customers have always enjoyed.

The original Noodle Box created a strong community vibe as the locals were drawn to the aromas, flavours and friendly atmosphere that radiated from the passion that Josh and Dave poured into their business. Each store is designed to mimic the original store to allow you to produce your own winning local atmosphere. Having Multicultural staff and owners is one of the key foundation stones for our stores success.
