Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Introduces Florida to New Drive-Thru Experience and Hosts Fundraiser for Wolfson Children’s Hospital
Jacksonville, FL – October 26, 2015 – Moe’s Southwest Grill®, the fast-casual restaurant best known for creating delicious burritos to order with fresh, flavorful ingredients, is opening their most innovative drive-thru location to date on October 29 at 11 a.m. at 13975 Village Lake Circle. Located off of St. Augustine Road in Jacksonville, this is the first stand-alone Moe’s location in Jacksonville with the first-ever smart drive-thru in Florida.
The Bartram Park Moe’s will celebrate the grand opening by offering “Pay What You Want” pricing all day on Oct. 29 for guests who dine-in, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Wolfson Children’s Hospital Newborn ICU to provide treatment and services to their tiniest patients. For guests who opt to use the drive-thru service, menu items will be full-price with 100 percent of the net sales donated to the local hospital.
“We are thrilled to introduce Jacksonville and the state of Florida to something they’ve never seen before – a smart drive-thru that will allow Moe’s to deliver the same great guest experience to our guests with added convenience,” said Jacksonville Moe’s franchisee, Brad Chasteen. “It is also important for us to support the community by giving back and hosting a fundraiser for the local children’s hospital on the grand opening day is a great way to introduce ourselves to Bartram Park.”
The innovative new drive-thru by NEXTEP SYSTEMS is an intercom-free, touchscreen drive-thru experience that guides drive-thru guests through an intuitive interface that makes even the most complicated orders simple. With Past Order Recall, repeat customers can order in seconds with the swipe of a card or by entering their phone number. Guests can quickly pay at the kiosk with a credit card or pull ahead to pay with cash.
At Moe’s, each meal is created-to-order in a way that is as unique as the people they serve.
