Chicken Club is Back at Moe’s & This Time Nachos Join the Mix

ATLANTA, GA (November 19, 2009) –  Just in time for the holidays, Moe’s Chicken Club burrito and quesadilla return to the menu, and this time they are joined by new Chicken Club Nachos. Since making its debut in 2007 as the company’s first ever limited time offer, the Chicken Club Quesadilla has been the best selling seasonal offer ever introduced. This year, the burrito and nachos of the same name plan to give the quesdilla a run for its money.

Whether you prefer fresh southwest ingredients rolled in a tortilla, grilled quesadilla style, or over warm tortilla chips and hot queso, the Chicken Club comes with rice, beans, grilled chicken, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, crispy bacon, shredded lettuce and a drizzle of cool chipotle ranch dressing and is served with free chips and salsa.

“We are excited to bring this Moe’s favorite back for a third time,” explains Joel Bulger, vice president of marketing for Moe’s Southwest Grill. “Our guests crave it, look for it and ask for it and we’re happy to give them what they want. And to continue delivering on our promise to offer a wide variety, we added nachos to the mix. Adding our famous queso to an item that is already a hit makes it that much better.”

The Chicken Club burrito, quesadilla and nachos are available at all 410 locations nationwide until December 31. And like all Moe’s burritos, the Chicken Club is also being offered in the new Junior size.

Running concurrently with the Chicken Club promotion, is a holiday gift card special. Guests who purchase a Moe’s gift card for 25 dollars or more will get five dollars in Moe Bucks for themselves.

Moe’s First Green Restaurant Launches the Brand’s Sustainability Initiative

Williston, VT (13)

ATLANTA, GA (November 12, 2009) – On October 15 Moe’s Southwest Grill celebrated the opening of the chain’s first green restaurant in Williston, VT. Two years ago Franchise Partners Sueayn and Philip Wood along with the Moe’s team set out to make the Williston Moe’s the first LEED certified restaurant in the chain and in the state of Vermont. 

“It’s exciting to be the first Moe’s restaurant to attempt LEED certification,” explains Sueayn Wood. “Our hope is that some of the innovations that have been discovered through this process can be applied to other Moe’s restaurants throughout the country.”

On its way to earning Silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Moe’s has installed LED lighting, energy efficient cooking equipment, and a technologically advanced air control system that they anticipate will reduce energy consumption by 22 percent.

In compliance with LEED standards, the building materials were locally sourced and the laminates, paint and adhesives are all low-emission to help enhance the air quality of the restaurant. 

In addition, this new location features low flow sink aerators, low flow toilets and waterless urinals. 

Finally, a unique regional feature is the Freeaire management system for the walk-in cooler that overrides the condensers and evaporators once the outside air reaches a temperature that is equal to or cooler than the desired walk-in temperature.   

“This project has been a great learning experience for the Moe’s brand,” explains President Paul Damico. “It has challenged our operations, development and supply chain teams to find solutions that meet the USGBC’s high standards.” 

In an effort to make responsible recommendations to Franchise Partners who wish to make their new and existing restaurants greener, Moe’s is tracking the usage and cost of Williston’s water, waste and energy to determine the impact of these environmentally-friendly improvements.

“At the same time, Moe’s is working on an energy efficiency strategy for the brand, testing a composting solution and making nutritional improvements,” says Damico. “Moe’s is committed to a more sustainable future and this marks the beginning of our journey.”
