ATLANTA - Jan. 30, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Moe’s Southwest Grill, the restaurant franchise featuring fresh southwest fare, has selected Engauge, a full-service marketing agency for the digital and social age, as its media agency of record. The agency has already begun to work on the company’s national media planning and buying, and will also be responsible for media buying for the Philadelphia co-op, which is inclusive of eleven stores.

“With their innovation, adaptability and creativity, we found Engauge to be a perfect fit for the Moe’s culture,” said Paul Macaluso, Chief Marketing Officer for Moe’s Southwest Grill. “They’ll help us target national television for the first time and make the most of our budget in the process.”
