Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening First West Texas Location

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Hosts Pay What You Want Day to Benefit Taylor County Sheriff’s Department

Abilene, Texas – Dec. 11, 2014 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard on the streets of Abilene when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 4138 Ridgemont Drive on Thursday, Dec.18 at 11 a.m.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Abilene Moe’s invites guests to ‘Pay What You Want’ for their meal on Dec. 18, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Taylor County Sheriff’s Department through the purchase of a new police dog for its K-9 unit.

The Abilene Moe’s marks the first location in the west Texas area and is owned and operated by franchise partners Tammy Reese and Ruth Musgrave. The friends-turned-business partners bring more than 20 years of restaurant experience to the Moe’s brand with their restaurant group Reese-Musgrave Ventures. Long-term growth plans include bringing up to 12 new Moe’s restaurants to west Texas over the next several years.

“I have seen a strong following develop around Moe’s in nearby towns and I believe the Abilene community will be no exception,” said franchise partner Tammy Reese. “I am eager to open our doors and look forward to building long-lasting relationships with our guests and the community.”

“Welcome to Moe’s!” is more than a greeting; it’s a way of life for the folks who customize each meal made 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 options  for kids, vegetarians, vegans and those with a gluten sensitivity.
