   CBS's Hit Series "Undercover Boss" Takes Moe's President Paul
        Damico Through Journey Inside Franchise Operations

    New Episode of Emmy Award-Winning CBS Reality Series to be
                     Broadcast Friday, Jan. 18

ATLANTA, Jan. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foodservice industry veteran
and President of Moe's Southwest Grill(R), Paul Damico, will have his
personal and professional journey spotlighted this week on the hit CBS
series "Undercover Boss." The show airs Friday, January 18 (8pm/7c) on
the CBS Television Network.

"It's not every day you're given the opportunity to take an inside look
at your business without any filters. I wanted a chance to see why
Moe's is standing out in the marketplace and what we can improve on as
a leader in the fast casual restaurant industry," said Damico. "I
walked away from this experience extraordinarily proud of our crew
members and the operations team throughout our restaurant
organization."

Damico's decision to participate in "Undercover Boss" comes as Moe's,
the fast-growing restaurant franchise best known for its flavorful
southwest fare and fun and engaging brand culture, is experiencing
tremendous growth and fine-tuning operations to ensure long-term
success of the brand, which was established in 2000. Damico was named
president of Moe's Southwest Grill in 2008 after a long foodservice
industry career with companies like SSP America, FoodBrand, LLC, and
Host Marriott Service Corporation, all industry leaders in the
restaurant business.

He and other Moe's leaders will take what Damico learned and continue
to build on the experience. Jobs Damico participated in during the show
include food preparation with a shift supervisor, working the register
with a general manager, going on sales calls with a catering director
and rolling burritos with a line cook.

Each week, the Emmy Award-winning "Undercover Boss," in its fourth
season, follows a different executive as they leave the comfort of
their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner
workings of their companies. While working alongside their employees,
they see the effects their decisions have on others, where the problems
lie within their organizations and get an up-close look at both the
good and the bad while discovering and rewarding the unsung heroes who
make their companies run.

Moe's is part of FOCUS Brands, a restaurant group with a robust
international infrastructure that currently supports more than 1,000
locations in more than 60 countries and is poised to support
significant international growth for Moe's Southwest Grill.
