VALRICO — Regional manager Tanner Callahan said that while people have come to expect the "welcome to Moe's" greeting when they walk through the doors to order a Homewrecker or Joey Bag of Donuts, they may not know what they are eating includes grass-fed chicken and steak, gluten-friendly options and more than 20 ingredients prepared fresh daily.

"We want to teach people where our food is from," said Callahan, who celebrated the opening of a new Moe's on Nov. 19 at 1015 E Brandon Blvd.

The Valrico Moe's is owned and operated by franchisees Anthony Friel and Ken Franklin, who have been with Moe's for more than 13 years. Friel and Franklin also operate additional Moe's locations in the Tampa area and throughout Central Florida.

Callahan said the grand opening was planned on the heels of the reopening of the Walmart that abruptly closed in April and that they hope to attract the dinner customer on the way home.

Plans for Moe's include a coupon for neighbor Famous Tate on receipts, a charity program and another Riverview restaurant opening near the new St. Joseph's Hospital-South, according to Callahan.

Moe's in Valrico features three televisions tuned to sports and will be open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. While burritos remain the best seller, Moe's also offers quesadillas, nachos, salads, tacos and bowls. For information, visit moes.com.
