Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening New Location in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Hosts Grand Opening Events for Local Colleges and Schools

Jenkintown, Pa. – April 7, 2015 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Jenkintown, Pa. when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens its doors at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 17 at 1595 The Fairway in the Baederwood Shopping Center. To celebrate the opening of the new restaurant, the Jenkintown Moe’s will host a series of community pre-opening events on April 15 and 16.

On Wednesday, April 15, the Jenkintown Moe’s will host a free lunch** for the community between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and an All You Can Eat fundraising dinner from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. 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, Moe’s has selected Cheltenham High School as the recipient of one hundred percent of the net sales from the fundraiser.

On Thursday, April 16, the attention to community spirit and giving shifts to colleges. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Jenkintown Moe’s will host a special College V.I.P. Party for all students, alumni, faculty and staff of all colleges and community colleges in the area, including Penn State Abington, LaSalle University and Manor College. 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**. In addition, free Moe’s spirit t-shirts will be given to the first 500 customers in line for the College V.I.P. Party.

Later that evening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Moe’s will host another $10 All You Can Eat pre-opening fundraiser to support Abington High School. The public is invited to join Moe’s in supporting the schools by attending the pre-opening fundraisers.

“It’s important to us to demonstrate our commitment to the community from day one. What better way to do so than by inviting our neighbors for a preview of Moe’s and donating all of our net sales to local schools,” commented Jim O’Brien, Moe’s Southwest Grill franchisee. “We are so excited to join the Jenkintown community and look forward to introducing everyone to the one-of-a-kind dining that is Moe’s.”

Last year, Philmore Southwest, LLC, the ownership group comprised of Jeff Coghlan and Jim O’Brien, opened its first Moe’s locations in Doylestown and Oaks, Pennsylvania and will pursue further expansion within the Northeast in addition to the forthcoming restaurants currently under contract.

Moe’s has attracted national attention, with Bloomberg TV focusing on the company’s growth and expansion.
