WATERTOWN, N.Y.  —  Moe’s Southwest Grill, the fast-growing restaurant franchise best known for its flavorful southwest fare and distinct brand culture, has signed a deal to bring three new restaurants to Central New York within the next three years. 

“We are very excited to expand Moe’s presence in Central New York with our freshly prepared southwest dishes, brought to you quickly in a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere,” said franchise partner Roger Wagner. “Soon, everyone in Watertown will be looking forward to hearing our famous ‘Welcome to Moe’s!’ greeting when they walk in the door. We are looking forward to becoming an important part of supporting the local community and those who serve our country.”

The new restaurant represents the first of three Moe’s Southwest Grill locations to enter locations in the Central New York market and will boost the economy by adding an estimated 25 new jobs per location. 

Target markets for the group include Auburn, Cortland, Elmira, Oswego and Geneva. 

Moe’s Southwest Grill has continued to outpace competitors by offering a fun, unmistakable culture, as well as fresh, made-to-order food with more than 20 flavorful ingredients. All meals, including signature items like the Homewrecker burrito, Close Talker salad and John Coctostan quesadilla, are served with free chips and salsa. 

Although Moe’s is best known for its burritos packed with fresh ingredients, the menu also features kids, vegetarian, and low-calorie options. 

While consumers flock to Moe’s when it opens a new restaurant, the company is also attracting a record number of franchise inquiries from entrepreneurs who want to be associated with the “it” restaurant brand. The company has grown to more than 440 locations in just 10 years.
