Moe’s Southwest Grill Re-Opening in Port Charlotte

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Jan. 16, 2014 – “Welcome to Moe’s!” will now be heard again on the streets of Port Charlotte as Moe’s Southwest Grill® re-opened today at 1904 Tamiami Trail North. Located at the corner of US 41 and Cochran Blvd., this is the only Moe’s in Charlotte County and is now under ownership of franchisee Mike Silverman.

Silverman has been with Moe’s for 10 years and owns seven Moe’s restaurants across southwest Florida, chiefly around Fort Myers and Naples. He purchased the Port Charlotte location, which had previously seen two different owners and had recently been closed for six months, and plans to turn it around with better leadership, food and service.

“We’ve had our eye on this location for a while, because we believe it really has the potential to be a first-class Moe’s establishment,” said Silverman. “Plus, the people of Port Charlotte deserve a Moe’s that delivers on quality service, food and fun every time they walk through our doors.”

“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 more than 20 fresh ingredients, the menu also features kid’s, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-friendly options.

Ranked the No. 1 Mexican food concept by leading research group Technomic in 2013, 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 Port Charlotte will be open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. For more information, guests may call 941-979-5167 or visit www.moes.com.
