Events for local colleges, businesses, and schools to usher in the new age of flavor in Oneonta

Oneonta, N.Y. – February 17, 2015 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Oneonta, N.Y. when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens its doors at 11 a.m. on Friday, February 27 at 5001 Route 23, the former site of the Neptune Diner in the Neptune Plaza. To celebrate the opening of the new restaurant, Moe’s Southwest Grill will host three community pre-opening events on Wednesday, Feb. 25 and Thursday, Feb. 26.

On Wednesday, Feb. 25 from 5 to 8 p.m., the Oneonta Moe’s will host an All You Can Eat fundraising dinner. As the name implies, guests can eat all the fresh and delicious Moe’s food they want for only $10. As part of its commitment to helping the community, the Oneonta Moe’s has selected the Oneonta Middle School as the recipient of 100 percent of the proceeds from the fundraiser.

On Thursday, Feb. 26, the attention to community spirit and giving shifts to the colleges and Oneonta High School.  From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Oneonta Moe’s Southwest Grill will host a special College V.I.P. Party for all students, faculty, and staff of SUNY Oneonta and Hartwick College. The first 50 customers through the door will receive free Moe’s burritos for a year* and the first 600 will receive a free Moe’s lunch**. In addition, free Moe’s spirit t-shirts will be given to the first 600 customers in line for the College V.I.P. Party.

“We love giving back to the community in a big way with our pre-opening events.  The culture of Moe’s Southwest Grill is focused on the community and we want to make sure we are actively involved in the lives of its residents to show that we really care about them.  It is really great to see the fun and excitement we can bring to the colleges, high schools, and the community as a whole when we open our restaurants. This is what really drives us and we look forward to bringing excitement and a one-of-a-kind dining option to Oneonta,” commented Larry Wilson, Moe’s Southwest Grill franchisee.
