FOCUS Brands Expands in Wyoming, Announcing First Moe’s Southwest Grill and Schlotzsky’s Combo Location

In celebration, free sandwiches and burritos for a year will be given to first 100 guests

ATLANTA (May 19, 2016) – FOCUS Brands announced today its plans for their first Moe’s Southwest Grill and Schlotzsky’s combo restaurant to be located in the Hat Six Travel Center at 6985 Nugget in Evansville, Wyo. This not only marks the brands’ first combo location but the first foray into the state of Wyoming for Moe’s. The grand opening will take place on May 26 at 10:00 a.m.

Moe’s Southwest Grill®, the fast-casual restaurant best known for creating craveable burritos to order with fresh, flavorful ingredients, currently has no other locations in the state of Wyoming. This will be Schlotzsky’s®, the home of the popular The Original® oven-baked sandwich served on its famous Fresh-from-Scratch® sourdough buns, second appearance in the state after a previous location in Casper, WY closed years ago.

“Wyoming is a key growth market for both Moe’s and Schlotzsky’s and with the new combo location in Evansville, we are confident this move will prove successful in helping grow our base of Moe’s and Schlotzsky’s lovers in Wyoming,” said business advisor Tiffany Mortimer.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Evansville Moe’s and Schlotzsky’s will be offering free Moe’s burritos for a year to the first 50 guests in line, and free Schlotzsky’s sandwiches for a year to the first 100 guests in line who also purchase a 6-pack of Cinnabon. Grand opening festivities will also include a prize wheel and $5 Moe’s burritos all day on opening day.

The Moe’s and Schlotzsky’s combo location will be operated by franchisee Doris McMurry. This is her first location for both brands.

There are three things Moe’s newbies should know: the crew will cry “welcome to Moe’s” when you walk in the door (don’t be jolted – it’s normal), the most popular burrito is lovingly called the Homewrecker, and Moe’s Famous Queso is famous for a reason. Schlotzsky’s newbies should make sure to try The Original Sandwich, featuring 13 fresh, flavorful ingredients served on Schlotzsky’s legendary Fresh-from-Scratch® oven-baked sourdough buns, topped with lean smoked ham, genoa and cotto salamis, melted cheddar, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, and layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and signature dressing.

The Evansville Moe’s will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the Evansville Schlotzsky’s will be open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, guests may visit www.moes.com and http://www.schlotzskys.com.
