Moe’s Southwest Grill® Celebrates Record Year for Franchise Sales in 2015

Leading Southwest Brand Signed Significant Deals with Experienced Multi-Unit Franchisees

March 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA, Ga. – Moe’s Southwest Grill®, a leader in the fast-casual Mexican restaurant space, experienced a strong year of results in 2015, with $641 million in system-wide sales. The company’s success was fueled in part by new deals signed with multi-unit franchise owners from other high-profile restaurant brands.

In 2015, Moe’s opened 68 new restaurants and sold 186 new franchise deals. The company entered new markets, and will continue its aggressive expansion this year with new restaurants being developed in significant markets, including Phoenix, Tucson, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Southern California.

“This is an exciting time to be a part of Moe’s; the franchise owners we are attracting not only see Moe’s as a quality brand to add to their portfolios, but genuinely want to grow with the company,” said Bruce Schroder, President of Moe’s. “The success we’ve experienced in 2015 gives us great momentum to build on as we continue to expand into new markets.”

This year, Moe’s intends to continue its aggressive expansion, remaining focused on significant development in the western part of the U.S. Moe’s will continue to seek experienced, multi-unit franchise owners in hopes of developing throughout the state of California, the Pacific Northwest, Detroit, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Nebraska in the years to come. 

Moe’s currently operates more than 650 franchised locations in the U.S., across 39 states. The company has attracted a record number of franchise inquiries in recent years due to its quality leadership, healthy sales-to-investment ratio, and exceptional company performance. Moe’s has had positive same-store sales for 25 consecutive quarters.
