Moe’s Southwest Grill Offers “Pay What You Want Day” For Grand Opening Jan. 16

Charlotte, N.C. – January 6, 2014– Moe’s Southwest Grill, the restaurant featuring fresh, made-to-order southwest fare, continues their Charlotte area growth with a new location celebrating its grand opening at the Carmel Village Shopping Center Thursday, Jan. 16.

To celebrate the grand opening at 7510 Pineville-Matthews Road #10A-2, guests will enjoy a Pay What You Want Day Jan. 16. This means guests have the opportunity to pay whatever they want, whether it’s $1 or $20, for one item on the menu. Plus, each item is served with free chips and salsa. All proceeds will support Thompson Child & Family Focus, a Charlotte-based, nationally accredited nonprofit agency that seeks to change the lives of at-risk children and families through therapy, education and care.

Ace from WHQC-FM 96.1 will be broadcasting live from the grand opening from noon – 2 p.m. Guests can also spin the Moe’s prize wheel for a chance to win coupons, Moe’s gear and qualify to win free burritos for a year.

“We are pleased to be able to bring another Moe’s Southwest Grill to the Charlotte area and even happier to include Thompson Child & Family Focus as a benefitting partner of the grand opening,” said franchisee, Steve Taylor. “Moe’s offers fresh, made-to-order meals in a fun and family-friendly environment that everyone can enjoy.”

Guests can also enjoy the new touch-screen operated Coca-Cola Freestyle® soda fountain. Coca-Cola Freestyle® offers more than 100 regular and low-calorie beverage options-including more than 60 diet, low-calorie and caffeine-free beverages, as well as many varieties of waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages that prior to the arrival of Coca-Cola Freestyle, were not available in the U.S.

Carmel Village and all other Charlotte area locations offer Moe Monday, every Monday — $5.55 for a burrito, chips and a regular drink. Kids Eat Free day is every Tuesday — one free kids’ meal per adult entrée purchase.
