A new Moe's Southwest Grill opened near Tallahassee Community College, making it the fifth Moe’s in Tallahassee.
The new place opened Thursday, Jan. 21 located at the intersection of W. Pensacola Street and Appleyard Drive, in the same plaza as Which Wich. Moe's gave out free shirts to the first 100 customers when its doors opened at 11 a.m.
To celebrate Moe's Southwest Grill’s new local expansion, patrons received a free cup of Moe's famous cheesy queso dip with a large bag of chips by texting MOESTCC to 81018 and replying YES, according to Tallahassee Democrat.
Rasetie Moore, a FAMU education student, said she couldn’t be anymore pleased with the new location.
“I actually stay in the outskirts of Tallahassee, Midway, so on my way to class or on my way back home it is in the perfect spot for my breaks and routes in and out of the city,” Moore said.
Moe's had four other locations already in Tallahassee established on Apalachee Parkway, Mahan Drive, Tennessee Street and Thomasville Road.
Lee Schneider, the area manager for all Moe's Southwest Grill’s locally, said it is a fun atmosphere and the food is fantastic.
“We’re in walking distance from one of the largest community colleges in the state of Florida. It gives them another selection to choose from because there are not that many options on the west side of town,” Schneider said.
He went on to say Moes has been in Tallahassee for 14 years. They also have a loyalty program where if a customer is to come in ten times they will get their eleventh meal for free. A month texting system lets devoted customers know about the monthly updates.
According to Schneider, Moe's offers almost 60 jobs in Tallahassee area and they plan to have that number increase with a sixth location opening later this summer on the north side of town.
“We are always hiring,” Schneider said.
