The Mansfield Downtown Partnership announced Friday that a second restaurant has signed on for the Storrs Center development
The newest tenant for the first phase of the project is Moe’s Southwest Grill, a Mexican cuisine franchise.
Executive Director of the Mansfield Downtown Partnership Cynthia van Zelm said, “We expect Moe’s to have a wide appeal to UConn students and faculty, as well as local residents and visitors. Their reputation for relaxed dining at a reasonable price should make them an ideal destination at Storrs Center.”
Moe’s Southwest Grill is a “quick serve” restaurant serving burritos, quesadillas, nachos, salads and fajitas.
Owned by Atlanta-based Focus Brands Company, the operation has franchises across the country. In Connecticut, restaurant locations include West Hartford, New Haven, South Windsor and Milford.
Vice President of Planning and Development for the project’s master developer LeylandAlliance, Macon Toledano said, “We welcome the early commitment from Moe’s Southwest Grill. They exactly match one of the restaurant profiles targeted through our ‘casting’ process. Moe’s will be a great addition to the commercial/retail tenant mix at the new Storrs Center Main Street.”
Last month, Vanilla Bean Café also signed a letter of intent for Storrs Center.
