History

The first Moe's restaurant opened in Atlanta, GA on December 1, 2000, and offered burritos, tacos, quesadillas, nachos, salads and fajitas. Guests could choose from over 25 fresh ingredients including grilled chicken, steak or tofu. There were meals just for kids, beverages just for adults, and free chips and salsa for all guests to enjoy with every meal. To demonstrate their commitment to freshness, Moe's has never used freezers, microwaves, animal fat, lard, or MSG. Over the years, Moe's has added ground beef, pulled pork, bacon and Junior burritos to the menu and has featured popular limited time offers like the Chicken Club Quesadilla and Phil E. Burrito.

In August 2007, Moe's Southwest Grill joined FOCUS Brands Inc. Atlanta-based FOCUS Brands is the franchisor and operator of over 3,300 Carvel, Cinnabon, Schlotzsky, Auntie Anne's locations and Seattle's Best Coffee on certain military bases and in international markets.

The company unveiled a new healthy menu in 2011 which includes hormone-free chicken and also gluten-free ingredients. The company also introduced rice bowls and whole-grain tortilla.
