Des Moines, Iowa – November 9, 2014 –Moe’s Southwest Grill®, the fast-growing restaurant franchise best known for its flavorful southwest fare, has signed a deal to bring 12 new restaurants to cities throughout Iowa, with the first slated to open in late summer of 2015.

The franchisees have committed to selecting local organizations to receive 100 percent of the proceeds from a pre-opening fundraiser on a date to be determined near the grand opening of each location. They are in the process of researching local organizations and charities, and invite organizations and schools to reach out if they are interested in receiving aid.

“We can’t wait to get involved in every aspect of the neighborhoods in which we’ll be opening and give back to local schools, charities and other organizations that help those in need,” said Middendorp. “It’s important to us to do our part, and we are committed to getting involved and giving back.”

Together, Davis, Middendorp and Middendorp also own nine successful Pizza Ranch locations in Ackley, Cedar Falls, Clarion, Eldora, Ft Dodge, Marshalltown, Waverly, Bettendorf and Clinton, Iowa.
