Moe’s Southwest Grill, the Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered fast-casual restaurant chain that menus made-to-order Southwestern USA-style cuisine, is bringing its bold flavors to the frozen food aisles of supermarkets and food stores nationwide. This first-ever grocery line of breakfast products, Moe’s Breakfast Bowls, was developed with Kellogg Company.
Founded in 2000, Moe’s is best known for burritos packed with a choice of more than 20 ingredients. The menu also features kid’s, vegetarian and low-calorie options, all served with chips and salsa. The frozen line of Moe’s Breakfast Bowls contain a minimum of 12 grams of protein and feature meats raised without hormones and have no artificial flavors or colors.

“We are thrilled to increase access to the delicious experience of Moe’s through the debut of Moe’s Breakfast Bowls at supermarkets nationwide,” said Kat Cole, chief operating officer and president of FOCUS Brands, the parent company of Moe’s. “The Southwest flavor profile is growing in appeal, but until now, not widely available in the breakfast category.”
“This is an awesome opportunity to expand our brand and bring options to consumers looking for satisfying morning meals that are also big on flavor and quality,” said Bruce Schroder, president of Moe’s Southwest Grill.
