Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening First of Five Locations in Rhode Island

WAKEFIELD, R.I. – Dec. 13, 2013 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard on the streets of Wakefield when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 600 Kingstown Road in the Belmont Shopping Center on Friday, Dec. 20. To celebrate the grand opening, all customers will receive a free burrito with any purchase on opening day.

The new restaurant, which is the first of a planned five locations in Rhode Island, is co-owned and operated by franchise partners Matt Rusconi and David Vorchheimer. The franchise group opened their first Moe’s restaurant in West Hartford, Conn. in 2008 and now own eight locations throughout the region. Four additional Moe’s restaurants in Rhode Island are expected to open within the next three years.

“We are thrilled to open our first Moe’s in Rhode Island,” said Rusconi. “We’ve seen a lot of success growing the brand in the New England region and we’re committed to developing in this state.”

“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.

Moe’s in Wakefield will offer weekly promotions such as “Moe Monday,” in which any burrito, chips and drink combo costs only $6.99, and on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. kids eat free with the purchase of any adult entrée.

Ranked the No. 1 Mexican food concept by leading research group Technomic in 2013, 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 Wakefield will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, guests may call 401-284-2940 or visit www.moes.com.
