Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening New Location in Tallahassee, Fla.

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Hosting Ribbon Cutting and Fundraiser for Local Nonprofit

Tallahassee, Fla. – January 15, 2016 – Welcome to Moe’s!® Moe’s Southwest Grill®, the fast-casual restaurant best known for creating craveable burritos to order with fresh, flavorful ingredients, is opening their newest location in Tallahassee at 3020 W Pensacola Street right across the street from Tallahassee Community College.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Walker Plaza Moe’s is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce followed by a fundraiser on January 20 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Child Advocates II, Inc., a local organization dedicated to helping provide for the needs of abused and neglected children in Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, and Wakulla counties.

The Tallahassee Moe’s is owned and operated by franchisee Rob Atkisson who has been with the brand since 2002 and operates four additional locations in the Tallahassee area. Enthusiastic to grow Moe’s presence in the area, Atkisson has plans to open an additional location in Bradfordville later this year.

“We’re excited to now offer nearby TCC and the surrounding community Moe’s fresh, flavorful food in a welcoming environment that rocks,” said Atkisson. “And what better way to show our support than by partnering with a local organization that does so much for Tallahassee.”

There are three things Moe’s newbies should know: the crew will cry “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 guest’s unique tastes and lifestyle. And no matter the meal, guests can always count on getting free chips and salsa.

Moe’s in Walker Plaza will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, guests may call (850) 329-7509 or visit Don’t forget to connect with Moe’s on Instagram, Twitter, Vine and Facebook, by tagging your posts and pics with #welcometomoes.
