With a current market cap of about $990 million, compared to CMG
at $16.5 billion and PNRA
at $4.8 billion, NDLS
is much smaller in comparison. Current CEO
Kevin Reddy and COO Keith Kinsley joined NDLS
after leaving CMG
and played a key role in the early growth stages of the Mexican food chain, which is up 80% year to date. Currently only in 26 states, the expansion opportunities in the coming years are enormous.
