Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening New Location in Skokie

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Offering $3 Burritos

CHICAGO – June 19, 2015 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Skokie when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 3620 West Touhy Avenue in the Touhy Marketplace, on Thursday, June 25.

To celebrate the grand opening, Moe’s of Skokie is offering $3 burritos all day and one free entrée to the first 50 guests though the door on opening day.

“Moe’s has a loyal following across the U.S., and I believe the Chicagoland area will also enjoy our fresh, flavorful food,” said franchisee Hinesh Patel. “I look forward to building lasting relationships with our guests and the community.”

Moe’s of Skokie is also hosting a fundraiser on Wednesday, June 24, to benefit Niles West High School Athletics. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., customers are asked to donate $5 to benefit the school’s football and basketball programs, in exchange for an entrée and fountain beverage. On Saturday, June 27, Moe’s will offer $4 entrées to students of all levels who present a valid student ID from any area school.

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).
