Moe’s to Open 7th Pittsburgh Location
Wexford Shopping Center Gets New Owner, Facelift, and Anchor Tenant
Moe’s Southwest Grill Will Open 7th Pittsburgh Location as part of the project
Wexford, PA (February 23, 2015) – The Shopping Center located at 10339 Perry Highway in Wexford, known as NA Center, has been purchased by an Investment Group led locally by Pittsburgh-area Moe’s Southwest Grill Franchisees Mike Geiger and John Iaquinta. This center is strategically located in the Wexford Flats at the entrance of North Allegheny Senior High School.
The group plans major renovations to the façade and pylon sign of the nearly 17,000 square foot building, and have announced that Moe’s Southwest Grill will anchor the plaza with a new restaurant on the end cap.
“We are excited to open Pittsburgh’s 7th Moe’s location, especially in the year we celebrate our 10th anniversary in the Market. The North Hills, and Wexford specifically, has been on our roadmap for quite some time. At Moe’s we always work to establish a great connection in the community and North Allegheny has been considered a huge part of our fan base since we opened in Cranberry in 2005. One of our most consistent guest feedback requests has been to open a spot further on south on 19, so we are proud to be able to make it happen.” said Geiger.
“We liked the Wexford area, but found most of the centers in the area were not up to our standards. When our broker, John Jackson of Cushman & Wakefield | Grant Street Associates, introduced us to this location, we immediately saw the potential and worked very quickly to close on the property. The idea of developing the look and feel of an entire center around our brand and customer base is a very attractive proposition.” said Iaquinta of the development opportunity.
Moe’s anticipates opening by the end of summer. The ownership group looks forward to announcing additional new tenants to fill the limited remaining vacant space in the near future.
