Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening Mississippi State University Location

Popular Fast-Casual Burrito Joint Opening This Fall, State Fountain Bakery Relocates to Student Union

Starkville, Miss. – February 24, 2015 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on Mississippi State University’s campus when Aramark opens a new Moe’s Southwest Grill® location at the north end of Perry Hall in the center of campus. The restaurant will replace the State Fountain Bakery which will be relocated to Colvard Student Union.

“The students have been rallying to bring Moe’s to Mississippi State for the past three years and we are excited to deliver them the fresh, new option to the MSU meal plan they have been asking for,” said Interim Vice President of Student Affairs, Bill Broyles. “Alumni and students can still find State Fountain Bakery’s renowned baked goods and Mississippi State ice cream just across the street in the student union.”

State Fountain Bakery will open in its new location just after Memorial Day, and Moe’s is scheduled to open its doors in time for student move-in day in August 2015. Mississippi State and Aramark will also enhance the existing dining area with a new all-weather patio in front of the Moe’s to be shared with neighboring restaurants in the area.

“We have been working so hard to bring Moe’s to Starkville and so are excited to finally introduce students, faculty and alumni to a new southwestern concept that offers craveable, cost-friendly menu items that are customizable to unique dietary needs.” said Jason Nall, MSU Dining Executive Director and Sr. Resident District Manager for Aramark.
