Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening Second Location in Pensacola

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Dec. 17, 2013 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard more frequently on the streets of Pensacola when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 7175 North Davis Highway on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Located in the new University Town Plaza Shopping Center just south of I-10, this is the second Moe’s in Pensacola owned by franchisee Eddie Webster. Webster, who has been a franchise partner with Moe’s for ten years, runs Webster Hospitality Management with his son Blake and daughter-in-law Theresa, both of Pensacola.

Opening day will present a great opportunity for local residents, University of West Florida (UWF) students and faculty and community business leaders to band together for a great cause. For a flat rate of $10, guests can order anything they want on the menu and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) at UWF, which promotes disability awareness and builds collaborative networks that provide educational access for students with disabilities. The goal of the SDRC is to empower students with disabilities in their pursuit of educational and career opportunities by assisting in the creation of an inclusive and supportive campus environment that facilitates graduation and participation in the global community.

“We wanted to do something special for the community and for the university here and really get started off on the right foot,” said Webster. “There are some amazing people in Pensacola, and we love what the SDRC at UWF is doing to help disabled students have the same opportunities and amazing college experiences as everyone else. Plus, we can’t wait for more local residents to try the delicious food and experience the fun atmosphere of our restaurants.”

“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-friendly 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.

All of the Moe’s locations in central New York are locally owned and operated; the company has a goal of raising $75,000 for local community groups and charities this year.

All meals, including signature items like the Homewrecker burrito, Close Talker salad and John Coctostan quesadilla, are served with free chips and salsa.
