Veteran Moe’s Franchisee Brings Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand to New City in Pennsylvania
EAST YORK, PENNSYLVANIA – March 24, 2016 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of East York, Pennsylvania when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens its newest location in East York at 3013 East Market Street on Friday, April 1. To celebrate the opening of the new restaurant, the East York Moe’s will host a series of community pre-opening events on March 30 and 31.
On Wednesday, March 30, the East York Moe’s is opening their doors early for an All You Can Eat pre-opening fundraising dinner for Central York High School from 5 to 8 p.m. 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 East York Moe’s has selected the Central York High School as the recipient of 100 percent of the net sales from the fundraiser.
On Thursday, March 31, the attention to community spirit and giving shifts to the East York community as a whole. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the East York Moe’s will host a special College and Community V.I.P. Party for all East York residents, as well as all students, alumni, faculty and staff of all area universities and colleges. The first 75 customers through the door will receive free Moe’s burritos for a year and all guests will receive a free Moe’s lunch, which includes one free entrée and drink per customer, while supplies last. The free burritos for a year prize entitles each winner to one burrito per week at the East York Moe’s. In addition, free Moe’s spirit t-shirts will be given to the first 600 customers in line for the V.I.P. Party.
Later that evening from 5 to 8 p.m., the East York Moe’s will host another $10 All You Can Eat pre-opening fundraiser event with 100 percent of the net sales benefitting the Central York School District elementary and middle schools.
“We are so excited to bring the fresh, flavorful food and a deep sense of community commitment that is ingrained in the Moe’s culture to East York,” said East York Moe’s franchisee Larry Wilson.
