The SEC has an issue with restaurant operator filings

|By:, SA News Editor

The SEC is downright ornery that Noodles (NDLS) and other restaurants companies use the word "guest" to describe their customers.

The agency contends the term doesn't accurately portray the business transaction going on when a person eats a meal at a dining establishment.

So far, Noodles has relented by keeping the term "guest" out of its most recent filings.
