Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening New Location in Vernon, Conn.

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Hosting Fundraiser for Local High Schools and Offering $3 Burritos

Vernon, Conn. – January 14, 2015 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Vernon when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 35 Talcottville Road in the Tri-City Plaza next to T.J. Maxx at 11 a.m. on Thursday, January 21.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Vernon Moe’s is hosting a fundraiser on Wednesday, January 20 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Rockville High School. For $10, guests will receive an entree of their choice, side, drink, and free t-shirt with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the local high school. The celebrations will continue on Thursday, January 21 when the Vernon Moe’s offers guests $3 burritos and burritos bowls all day.

The Vernon Moe’s is owned and operated by franchisees, Matt Rusconi and David Vorchheimer who have been with Moe’s since 2008 and own 11 additional locations throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island with plans to develop more in the coming years.

“Moe’s is a rapidly growing brand with a loyal following across the country and we believe Vernon will also enjoy Moe’s fresh, flavorful food and family-friendly atmosphere,” said Rusconi. “We’re eager to open our doors and look forward to building long-lasting relationships with our guests and the community.”

There are three things Moe’s newbies should know: the crew will say, “Welcome to Moe’s!” when you walk in the door (don’t be jolted – it’s normal), the most popular burrito is lovingly called the Homewrecker, and Moe’s Famous Queso is famous for a reason.

Each meal is created-to-order in a way that is as unique as the people Moe’s serves. With honestly good ingredients like all-natural chicken, grass-fed steak, organic tofu and handcrafted guacamole, Moe’s offers a wide variety of options to meet guests’ unique tastes and lifestyle. And no matter the meal, guests can always count on getting free chips and salsa.

And whether you’re hosting a party, business function or wedding, or you’re tailgating before a big game, Moe’s catering has you covered. Moe’s offers one-of-a-kind caterings filled with flavorful options that please even the pickiest of eaters (vegetarian, gluten-sensitive, lower calorie). Check out for more information.

Moe’s in Vernon will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, guests may call (860) 870-0123 or visit
