In 2013, Chipotle made headlines for becoming the first national restaurant chain to voluntarily disclose the presence of GMOs in our food. In 2015, we succeeded in our quest to switch to serving food made only with non-GMO ingredients. 

Learn more about why we're saying "Farewell" to GMOs.

Company's Description

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. develops and operates fast casual, fresh Mexican food restaurants in 21 states throughout the United States and in the District of Columbia. Chipotle became a subsidiary of McDonald's in September 1999-2006 when McDonald's acquired a controlling stake in the Company at the same time that the Company's predecessor, World Foods, Inc., a Colorado corporation formed in 1996, merged with Chipotle. Chipotle, a corporation formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 30, 1998, was the surviving entity in the merger.

The Chipotle's philosophy is simple: demonstrate that food served fast doesn't have to be a fast-food experience. Chipotle tries to avoid using a formulaic approach when creating its experience and looked to fine-dining restaurants for inspiration. The Company uses high-quality raw ingredients, classic cooking methods and a distinctive interior design, and has friendly people to take care of each customer-features that are more frequently found in the world of fine dining. Chipotle competes in a category of dining now called fast-casual, the fastest growing segment of the restaurant industry, where customers expect food quality that's more in line with full-service restaurants, coupled with the speed and convenience of fast food.

Chipotle uses an integrated information system to manage the flow of information within each restaurant and between the restaurants and the corporate office. This system includes a point-of-sales local area network that helps facilitate the operations of the restaurant by recording sales transactions and printing orders in the appropriate locations within the restaurant. Additionally, the point-of-sales system is used to authorize, batch and transmit credit card transactions, to record employee time clock information, and to produce a variety of management reports. Select information that is captured from this system is transmitted to the corporate office on a daily basis, which enables management to continually monitor operating results.

As of Mar 2014, the company operated 2,000 restaurants, with, ~37,310+ employees, including Chipotle restaurants through the United States, as well as five in Canada, five in London, England, and one in Paris, France, and also one ShopHouse Southease Asian Kitchen, a restaurant in Washington D.C.  The Company had 258 free-standing units, 861 end-cap locations, 233 in-line locations and 58 others.  The average restaurant size is about 2,535 square ft and seats about 56 people.  Most includes patio.  Chipotle is on target to be reaching 2,500 restaurants by 2015.
