Gainesville-Area Woman Wins Moe’s Southwest Grill® Facebook Contest, Original Salsa Recipe to Debut Nationwide

“Three Bears Salsa” Coming to Fast-Casual Burrito Franchise Oct. 3

ATLANTA – Oct. 2, 2013 – Cheryl Gallowitz, a veterinary technician from Newberry, Fla., will have her original salsa recipe debut in Moe’s Southwest Grill® restaurants nationwide on Thursday, Oct. 3. Gallowitz entered her creation, dubbed “Three Bears Salsa,” in Moe’s “Raise the Salsa Bar” Facebook contest during the summer of 2012 and won the grand prize of $1,000. One year later, the southwest-style burrito franchise is now ready to unleash the new salsa to customers across the U.S. for a period of six months.

 

Gallowitz moved to Gainesville from New York four years ago and invented the winning salsa recipe in memory of her favorite cantina back home. She then began serving it at social gatherings to much acclaim and decided to enter the Moe’s contest on a whim when she saw an advertisement in June of 2012.

 

The “Three Bears Salsa” consists of diced tomato, onion, red pepper, green pepper, tomatillo, cilantro, pickled jalapenos, red wine vinegar, sea salt and lime juice. Described by Gallowitz, it’s “not too hot, not too mild, but just right” – an homage to the taste and the fairy tale.

 

“It was a really fun experience to be a part of and I’m excited to see how my salsa turns out in the restaurants,” said Gallowitz. “I’m thankful to Moe’s for even giving me this opportunity in the first place.”

 

Gallowitz, who works at the University of Florida Large Animal Hospital, says her favorite location is on her way home from work – the Moe’s at 3832 W. Newberry Road near University Avenue. She began going there for the “Moe Monday” $5 burrito promotion. Other Gainesville Moe’s locations can be found on the University of Florida campus at Rec Center Dining and at 3443 SW Archer Road and 7770 W. Newberry Road.

 

Moe’s Southwest Grill is a fast-casual restaurant franchise featuring fresh, handmade, customizable southwestern food. All meals, including signature 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 over 20 fresh ingredients, the menu also features kid’s, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

 

“We know the new ‘Three Bears Salsa’ is going to be a hit with our loyal customers,” said Paul Macaluso, Chief Marketing Officer of Moe’s Southwest Grill. “We love interacting with our fans online through social media channels, and this contest gave us the opportunity to help bring someone’s passion to life and translate it into success inside the restaurants.”

Moe’s Southwest Grill Staten Island Hosts 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive on Sept. 4

Popular Fast-Casual Burrito Joint Partners with NY Blood Center;
Gives Away Free Entree to Blood Donors on September 4 

Staten Island, NY (August 19, 2013) – Moe’s Southwest Grill will once again honor 9/11 victims by partnering with New York Blood Center (NYBC) to host their annual blood drive at 2397 Hylan Blvd on Wednesday, September 4. When donors give a pint of blood, they will receive a free entrée from Moe’s.

Staten Island Borough President James P. Moinaro works with NYBC to organize drives among local businesses and community organizations; last year they set a goal to collectively raise 275 pints of blood in remembrance of the 275 Staten Islanders who lost their lives in the attacks against the U.S on September 11, 2001. The goal was far surpassed, with 668 donors giving a pint of ”life”, encouraging them to aim even higher this year.

“With the outpouring of support we received last year, I’m confident the community can come together to raise more than 700 pints,” said Moe’s Franchise Partner and local Staten Islander Joe McAllister. “It is a cause close to my, and much of Staten Island’s heart, and a great opportunity for me and the Moe’s team to help contribute and save lives while honoring those who lost theirs in 9/11.”

NY Blood Center will be at the Staten Island Moe’s Southwest Grill between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET. Donors must be at least 16 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more, bring photo identification and eat or drink something before donating. After donating one pint of blood, guests will receive a coupon to receive one free entrée from Moe’s – a burrito, stack, salad or quesadilla – to be used at any time.

For more information, guests may call 718-979-8226 or visit www.nybloodcenter.org.
