History[edit]

Moa shipment and popularity[edit]

Directly before the glassing of Reach in 2552, the restaurant received a shipment of moa from the planet. With most of Reach's native moa wiped out during the battle, Have S'Moa had ownership over the largest moa population. Due to the species' rarity, their value skyrocketed and made Wiljax Brantley a very rich man practically overnight. The restaurant quickly grew popular after the war, with moa nuggets becoming an incredibly expensive delicacy among wealthy Unified Earth Government dignitaries.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • Have S'Moa is a reference to the popular modern-day restaurant McDonald's, with the KolonyKids Meals being a reference to McDonald's Happy Meals.
  • As part of the marketing for Halo Infinite, Halo partnered with Pringles to produce potato chips inspired by the moa burger. These Moa Burger Pringles were sold exclusively at Walmart locations.[5]
  • Also as part of Halo Infinite's marketing, Xbox produced T-shirts emblazoned with the logo of Have S'Moa.[1]
