Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Coming July 18
SUFFOLK, Va. – July 10, 2013 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard on the streets of Suffolk when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 1217 N. Main St. on Thursday, July 18, across the street from Walmart. This is the very first Moe’s in Suffolk and the fifth from local franchise partners Todd Tillery and Chip Kimnach.
Tillery and Kimnach are longtime Virginians, born and raised in nearby Virginia Beach and alumni of Virginia Tech. They opened their first Moe’s restaurant together in the Ghent neighborhood of Norfolk in 2005 and have since developed two locations in Virginia Beach and another in Chesapeake.
“Moe’s has a growing presence across the Hampton Roads region and it’s time Suffolk residents got a chance to try the delicious food and experience the fun atmosphere of our restaurants,” said Tillery. “Suffolk is an in-demand market for which we both have a great deal of affinity.”
“Welcome to Moe’s!” is more than a greeting; it’s a way of life for the folks who customize each meal fresh-to-order in front of every guest. All meals, including signature menu items like the Homewrecker burrito, Close Talker salad and John Coctostan quesadilla, are served with free chips and salsa. While Moe’s is best known for its burritos, packed with a choice of more than 20 fresh ingredients, the menu also features kid’s, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
Guests can also try the new Coca-Cola Freestyle® soda fountain. The sleek, stylish new fountains are touch-screen operated, enabling consumers to select from more than 100 regular and low-calorie beverage brands – including more than 70 diet or low-calorie and 90 caffeine-free beverages, 80-plus unique brands offered nowhere else, and many varieties of waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages that, prior to the arrival of Coca-Cola Freestyle, were not available in the U.S.
Ranked No. 1 in the Fast Casual Mexican Category by Entrepreneur in 2011, Atlanta-based Moe’s Southwest Grill serves fresh, made-to-order burritos and southwest fare in a fun and laid-back environment. For more information, guests may call (757) 925-4405 or visit www.moes.com.
