CEDAR PARK, Texas, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Moe's Southwest Grill®, the fast-casual restaurant best known for creating craveable burritos to order with fresh, flavorful ingredients, is opening their newest location in Cedar Park at 1320 Cypress Creek Road Cedar Park, TX 78613 on September 1 at 11 a.m. The Cedar Park location is the first Moe's location to open in the Austin area.
"Texas is a key growth market for Moe's and with the new Cedar Park location, we are confident this move will prove successful in helping grow our base of Moe's lovers in the Austin area and in Texas," said Peter Ortiz, Moe's Vice President of Franchise Development.
The Cedar Park location is owned and operated by franchisee Eric Gutierrez. This is Gutierrez's first Moe's location, and he has plans to open 14 total locations in the Austin area over the next several years. He is a former McDonald's franchisee and is planning to relocate from New Jersey to Austin.
The Austin Spurs will be kicking off the grand opening celebrations on August 31, with the Silver and Black Give Back fundraiser lunch from 12 to 2 p.m., featuring a $5 entrée, side and drink. The Cedar Park Public Library Foundation will continue the celebrations with a dinner fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the local organizations. Opening day celebrations on Thursday, September 1 will feature $5 burritos all day and a prize wheel.
One week later on September 9, Cedar Park residents will also have a chance to win more. The first 100 guests in line will be awarded free burritos for a year.
There are three things Moe's newbies should know: the crew will cry "welcome to Moe's" when you walk in the door (don't be jolted – it's normal), the most popular burrito is lovingly called the Homewrecker, and Moe's Famous Queso is famous for a reason.
Each meal is created-to-order in a way that is as unique as the people Moe's serves. With honestly good ingredients like all-natural chicken, grass-fed steak, organic tofu and handcrafted guacamole, Moe's offers a wide variety of options to meet guest's unique tastes and lifestyle. And no matter the meal, guests can always count on getting free chips and salsa.
Moe's in Cedar Park will be open Monday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, guests may call (512) 243-5420 or visit www.moes.com. Don't forget to connect with Moe's on Instagram, Twitter, Vine and Facebook, by tagging your posts and pics with #welcometomoes.
