Moe’s Southwest Grill made its triumphant return to MoCo when the fast-casual Mexican restaurant opened in the Wheaton Mall food court in late 2019. In early 2022, a new Moe’s location opened in the recently renovated Montgomery Village Center, around the same time the Wheaton Mall store closed. The Montgomery Village store, now the only Moe’s Southwest Grill location in Montgomery County, is available for sale according to a business listing.
Per the listing, the franchise unit that’s available for sale doesn’t include the real estate, and can be purchased for $325K. “Single Moe’s Southwest Grill franchise unit, real estate not included. Opened Feb’22, all new FF&E, and no deferred maintenance. Great starter opportunity to enter the Moe’s franchise system. Attractive seller financing terms available.
