Skip to comments.Young Socialist Reveals Popular ‘Noodles & Company‘ Restaurant Is Harsh ’Dictatorship’
Posted on 03/01/2011 11:09:00 AM PST by chickadee
Aaron Kennedy, the founder of Noodles, grew up on a farm with few to no connections to money. Like my friend Rob, Kennedy also studied at the University of Wisconsin. At 29, while eating at a Chinese restaurant, Kennedy had an idea, and scribbled his business plan on a napkin.
Scraping some money together from his friends and family and maxing out eight credit cards, Kennedy opened the first Noodles in his basement, and then put together a team with whom hed build and operate 100 Noodles branches all on their own. It is now a $75 million franchise with 240 locations in 18 different states, providing jobs to over 3,000 employees just like Rob. This is what the American Dream looks like.
When I first heard this little punk via an audio clip, I thought it was a joke. This idiot has to be heard to be believed. The noodles part of the video starts at 3:38.

This is laughable, but it ain't funny.
It was so generous of this little dope to be willing to give his boss an equal share in Noodles if he contributes his “skills”.
This is laughable, but it ain’t funny.
Agreed Big Time!!
I had to post one of the comments that made me LOL:
The Clown and McDonalds and Jack in the Box are just puppet regimes for the biggest tyrannt of all, Jerod for Subway. He runs it all underground and gets you fat, just to work the pounds off again. Back and forth for what, just his entertainment?
We need to round all these dictators up, free the Fry cooks, the window workers, and the moppers, let them be free, then, Happy Meals for everyone, except without the fatty good food, and more like sticks and apples.
Then we can all be equally poor, unhappy, and hungry. But we would all be equal.
Ha! My daughter is a manager at Noodles. This clown is completely full of it.
It’s frightening that these people (socialists/communists) are making such headway with our kids.
We all got too “sophisticated” to warn our children about the red menace.
I think I lost some IQ points just listening to that stupid punk. Sweet mercy. What is wrong with these people. And how about the “instructor”. What on earth?
When I was growing up we used to say: “Never trust anyone over 30.” I guess what goes around comes around, I am truly worried about turning the country over to any of the uneducated youths of today. This young man is clearly delusion.
Bump to look at the video at home ...
Towards the end of the video, they have a foreign professor, Aussie or Kiwi, leading these dopey-headed Commies.
Can somebody please explain to me why we allow foreigners—Muslims, Mexicans, White Marxists—into the United States in order to destroy it?
It truly boggles the mind.
What happens when someone is out in the back of the school jokin and smokin instead of getting an education
If I were his boss I would fire his butt immediately and make sure all the other restaurants in the area where he might apply knew of his views......
The original title was too long according to FR, so I had to shorten it. One of the words removed was “Madison”.
This is what is so scary - while we are trying to wrest our state back from the civil service unions, these socialists are filling students’ heads with their garbage . . . night after night on the floor of our Capitol. It turns the stomach to contemplate it.
He’s repeating exactly what he’s taught in college.
Socialists are remarkably ignorant.
Enemies of America
Hes repeating exactly what hes taught in college.
Weird. I have two college graduates of public universities and they don’t talk like that at all. Nor do their friends/colleagues/acquaintances.
Why we insist on painting the vast majority with the extreme is just baffling.
Rob Lewis and Chris Dols... The leaders of the local Socialist commune in Madison...
The National Association of cowardly little punks with no discernible skills who still think the world owes them a living.
The funny part is that the “fat cat CEO” of Noodles came up with the concept for the restaurant while he was a student at UW-Madison, home of these anti-capitalist freedom fighters.
Looking at that again and listening to that dweeb talk about how the owner needs to “cooperate” with him and his noncompoop co-workers instead of telling them how to do their jobs, it makes you shake your head in wonder. He seemed truly amazed that if he didn’t cook what he was told to cook and to come in on time that “they would get rid of him”.
What’s saddest of all - you and I support these clowns.
They don’t “own” anything. They are mainly students, professors, or public union types (note the guy from AFSCME). They draw financial aid from the public, or their salaries from State/Gov’t institutions. They meet in school or Gov’t buildings. They are truly parasites.
I like the part where he says there are two kinds of jobs, jobs where you work for someone else, and jobs where you are self-employed. It didn’t occur to him to start his own business, but to seize someone else’s.
reminds me of those Wobblies who are trying to organize Starbucks.
Get a load of the kid who says he comes from a “Radical Collective Space”
Noodles... I recommend it! Good food!
Good for you. What does that have to do with this guy?
Overpriced rip-off is more like it. Mac-n-cheese $5 for 1 cup of noodles with some shredded cheese out of a bag sprinkled on top (not even melted). Nothing under $8 that will even begin to fill you up (and I’m a small person). Salad just hunks of lettuce, cucumber and tomato with vinegar and oil dressing. Sandwiches all bread with a piece of lunchmeat. It costs my family at least $40 to eat there and no one leaves full. I enjoy eating out and am willing to pay, but I can’t stand blatant rip-offs like that. when an 10-year old says the place is a rip-off, you know it’s bad!
Maybe the little socialist would like a very long vacation.
Exactly..but it was nice that he would let the owner work there after it becomes a communal property ....Ohhhhhhh mercy
Good for you. What does that have to do with this guy?
That you pulled a wackanoodle out of the mix and contend that he is, somehow or in some way, representative of college students. Your comment to which I responded was an indictment of college students and their professors generally.
I’m sorry, but I strenuously object to the painting of the middle with the extreme. It’s like painting the entire pro-life movement with Scott Roeder or James Charles Kopp.
Sorry you took the comment that way, it was not my intent. BUT. I teach regularly as a consulting lecturer to college students and the only place I ever hear people talk like this is on college campuses and MSNBC. Ever. There is a segment of the college community that is the source of this stuff. That you don’t hang with the type of people who gravitate to this end of the college experience does not surprise but it’s there.
Hey! They sudied hard for their mid-terms! Give them all your money!
Pathetic aren’t they?
Glenn Beck talked about this on his radio and tv shows.
Now millions of Beck’s listeners and viewers know that this kid is a foaming rabid moonbat moron...if we are still a capitalist system when he graduates; he’s screwed.
Lefties are theives at heart. Murderers at soul.
It’s a great idea for a restaurant if you like noodles. Noodle dishes from all over. My family and I enjoy eating there and we are filled. I guess everyone has their preferences!
