VIRGINIA — A female police officer was refused service at the Noodles & Company restaurant because one of the cooks refused to serve her.
The police officer was approaching the cashier to place an order when a line cook entered the counter area from the kitchen and told the cashier, “You better pull me off the line, because I’m not serving that,” according to the Alexandria PD.
The police officer claims the cashier and the cook started to laugh. The police officer left the restaurant.
The restaurant’s management confirmed the incident as described by the police officer, and put out the following statement:
“Noodles & Company expects the highest ethical and personal behavior from its team members. We value each of our guests and are committed to treating every one with dignity and respect. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination.”
“We are working with the appropriate authorities and local police association representatives to get to the bottom of, and resolve this matter as quickly as possible. We have made efforts to reach out to the police officer involved, but have not yet spoken with her. We will continue to look into the situation and will take the appropriate actions at the conclusion of this review.”
