Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening First Location in Cheektowaga

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Bolstering Presence in Buffalo

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – June 10, 2013 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will soon be heard on the streets of Cheektowaga when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 4944 Transit Road on Friday, June 14. The new restaurant is located near the intersection at Losson Road by Target Plaza.

The Cheektowaga location is locally owned and operated by franchise partner Kevin DiPirro and is his group’s fourth Moe’s in the Buffalo area – following Buffalo, Amherst, and the Angola Travel Plaza. DiPirro, a lifelong Buffalo native, has been with Moe’s since 2007, and Cheektowaga has long been a desired target market for the fun and family-friendly concept.

“Moe’s has a growing presence in Buffalo, and it’s time Cheektowaga residents got a chance to try the delicious food and experience the fun atmosphere of our restaurants,” said DiPirro. “It’ll be a great fit in the family-oriented and flourishing community of Cheektowaga.”

“Welcome to Moe’s!” is more than a greeting; it’s a way of life for the folks who customize each meal fresh-to-order in front of every guest. All meals, including signature menu items like the Homewrecker burrito, Close Talker salad and John Coctostan quesadilla, are served with free chips and salsa. While Moe’s is best known for its burritos, packed with a choice of over 20 fresh ingredients, the menu also features kid’s, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

Guests can also try the new Coca-Cola Freestyle® soda fountain. The sleek, stylish new fountains are touch-screen operated, enabling consumers to select from more than 100 regular and low-calorie beverage brands – including more than 70 diet or low-calorie and 90 caffeine-free beverages, 80-plus unique brands offered nowhere else, and many varieties of waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages that, prior to the arrival of Coca-Cola Freestyle, were not available in the U.S.

Ranked No. 1 in the Fast Casual Mexican Category by Entrepreneur in 2011, Atlanta-based Moe’s Southwest Grill serves fresh, made-to-order burritos and southwest fare in a fun and laid-back environment. Moe’s in Cheektowaga will be open 11 a.m.-10 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, guests may call (716) 668-8818 or visit
