Moe’s Southwest Grill Opening New Location in Jackson

Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand Hosting Fundraiser for Nonprofit

 Jackson, Mississippi – October 13, 2016 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Jackson when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens at 1220 East Main Street, Suite 345 on Thursday, October 20 at 11 a.m.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Jackson Moe’s is hosting a fundraiser on Wednesday, October 19 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For $5, guests will receive an entrée of their choice, side, and drink with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Circle of Sisterhood, a nonprofit organization dedicated to partnering with sorority women to raise financial resources for entities around the world that are removing educational barrier for girls and women facing poverty and oppression.

The Jackson Moe’s is owned and operated by franchisee Josh Snyder and his partner Jesse Husmann who have plans to open additional locations in Madison, Ridgeland, and Flowood. Snyder also has three additional Moe’s locations in Columbia, S.C

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.
