Moe's Southwest Grill has named the top three Facebook fans whose original salsa recipes have raised the bar this summer, during its first "Raise the Salsa Bar Contest." Tatia Williams of Ladson, South Carolina; Kate Elliott of Muncie, Indiana; and Cheryl Gallowitz of Gainsville, Florida have the chance to have their salsa recipe featured in more than 450 Moe's restaurants nationwide and take home a $1,000 cash prize. Moe's executives will determine the grand prize winner at the end of this month with semifinalists judged on ingredient selection, originality, and ease of preparation.

Some are providing customers with greater selections in the condiments they offer, allowing guests to customize their own meal with expansive condiment bars.

Move over, Main Street. Moe’s Southwest Grill and sister FOCUS Brands concepts—including Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon, and Carvel Ice Cream—are taking the path less traveled with a strategic growth plan that involves building units in nontraditional venues like train stations, convenience stores, college campuses, and military bases.
The new locations will give FOCUS Brands concepts access to the masses in ways that traditional real estate settings can’t, says Paul Damico, president of Moe’s Southwest Grill.
