Veteran Moe’s Duo Brings Second Location of Leading Southwest Fast-Casual Brand to Northeast Ohio
CUYAHOGA FALLS, OHIO – January 4, 2016 – “Welcome to Moe’s!®” will soon be heard on the streets of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio when Moe’s Southwest Grill® opens its new location in Cuyahoga Falls at 753 Howe Road, Unit C on Friday, January 15. To celebrate the opening of the new restaurant, the Cuyahoga Falls Moe’s will host a series of community pre-opening events on January 13 and 14.
On Wednesday, January 13, the Cuyahoga Falls Moe’s is opening their doors early for an All You Can Eat fundraising dinner for Cuyahoga Falls 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 Cuyahoga Falls Moe’s has selected the Cuyahoga Falls High School as the recipient of 100 percent of the net sales from the fundraiser.
On Thursday, January 14, the attention to community spirit and giving shifts to the Cuyahoga Falls community as a whole. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Cuyahoga Falls Moe’s will host a special College and Community V.I.P. Party for all Cuyahoga 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 Cuyahoga Falls 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 Cuyahoga Falls Moe’s will host another $10 All You Can Eat pre-opening fundraiser event with 100 percent of the net sales benefitting the Cuyahoga Falls Elementary and Middle Schools, with the proceeds benefitting more than 3,700 students across the nine schools in the district.
The powerhouse ownership team of Tony Mazzeo and Larry Wilson is taking Northeast Ohio by storm with the opening of its second Moe’s Southwest Grill location in Cuyahoga Falls. Both have a passion for the Moe’s brand and have demonstrated success within the restaurant group. Mazzeo worked as a Field Business Consultant with Moe’s Corporate for five years and recently left to partner with Wilson, who has been a Moe’s franchisee for the past seven years.
“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 Cuyahoga Falls,” said Mazzeo.
Larry Wilson is an owner of Moe’s restaurants throughout Maryland, Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania. Wilson was named Moe’s Top Franchisee worldwide last year for his aggressive expansion and the successful operation and growth of his restaurants.
