COLUMBUS, Ga. – September 10, 2013 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard more frequently on the streets of the greater Columbus area when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 6516 Kitten Lake Drive in Midland on Friday, Sept. 13. As a bonus, customers will be treated to a “pay what you want” day on Saturday, Sept. 14 in which the proceeds will benefit JDRF and the West Central Georgia Regional Hospital Foundation, Inc.
The Midland location is owned and operated by franchise partners Todd Pennington and Brack Rowe and is their fifth Moe’s location together, as well as their second location to open in the greater Columbus area. Pennington and Rowe have been with Moe’s since 2002 and are looking forward to further expansion in the area with Moe’s fun and family-friendly concept.
“Moe’s has a growing presence in Columbus, and it’s time Midland residents got a chance to experience the delicious food and fun atmosphere of our restaurants a little closer to home,” said Pennington. “We are thrilled to begin our expansion in Midland and the surrounding communities.”
“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. Moe’s in Midland will be open Sunday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-10p.m. For more information, guests may call 706-225-0333 or visit www.moes.com.
