Chipotle was founded in Denver in 1993 and grew to be one of the most successful fast-food companies ever. This video explains how Chipotle founder Steve Ells turned his love of burritos into a chain of about 500 restaurants over the past twenty years.

Alexis Johnson Yes, because of an outbreak that happened three years ago? It could happen to any restaurant; it happened to Chipotle, and they did the best they could, and it worked out. There hasn't been a singpe case of E.coli from Chipotle since 2015. They ended the outbreak completely in all Chipotle stores. Learn your facts please.
greg scott The person on the line doesn't know if you're eating a burrito for here or to go (with bowls and tacos they doe because of the lids). So they have to assume you are eating it for here, and if you are the dirty tinfoil doesn't get nasty that quick. And don't complain about the dirty tinfoil if you can just ask for a new one, and when told to ask for a new one, you say: "I don't have to". Also you try understanding someone who is mumbling behind a 2 inch thick sneeze guard. It isn't easy to hear people, and we ask twice to make sure we don' mess up the order. We meet a lot of different customers, and some totally flip out when their order is messed up. So to prevent that we ask twice just in case. Like there are so many simple things that you as a customer can do to make your experience at chipotle, or at any restaurant for that matter, better.
Just to be clear its not fast food which means if it were most of their food would be processed and chipotle has no processed food its all fresh and freshly made and prepared in hours not in minutes and the ones ive been to mostly in ohio mostly there is none that have drive thru's and it doesn't operate how like mcdonalds and Burger King etc. operate and its a fast mexican cuisine
Wow I hear no idea the guy who started the company was from the bay area. I was born and raises in the Bayarea. And i love a mission street burrito. I live 2 hours from SF but whenever I visit that is one of the first places I stop at. There is a little hole in the wall burrito shop right next to the bart station on mission. That is my favorite spot. His burritos are very reminiscent of a mission street burrito.
Queenofweaves I work at a store in the Bay Area and I had no idea either! Apparently Steve’s parents frequent my store as well, as we are one of the highest profiting stores in Northern California. It’s great to see locals strive to be the best as possible :)
Chipotle never impressed me with taste of their foods. Quite bland and well, meh... There's another growing chain making similar style food called Freebirds that I think uses a lot better ingredients and the staff always seems to be much more friendly. There's a culture thing there I think. Anyway, find one and you'll see the difference.
Ryan Matlock chipotle in a town in Ohio called Bedford. Might be the best chipotle I've ever been to. They put lots of stuff on the burritos, and had really nice employees. Even thud one guy that flipped the lids onto the burrito bowls. He was really fun to watch.
Labamba was the original Chipotle. It was invented by the Aguas brothers from chicago. Their first location was in Champaign Illinois. It became a huge sensation there. The Pepsi cola Rep noticed this & created a business plan, which he shopped to McDonalds HQ, in Chicago. That is how a made to order burrito giant was born. "Burritos as big as your head!"
I would be very sure that that outbreak happened intentionally
the fast food infrastructure should have managed expansion so I would say someone did not like getting squeezed
airbnb has been the victim of paid harassment horror stories repeatedly sense it's rise as was eBay and PayPal these are facilitated chaos entities to discourage investment growth
it's to easy to get away with and super inexpensive to payoff bad behavior
+NoToleranceForIgnorance what about you? can you go to your parents and request a large amount of money like that or can your child come to you with this request? furthermore can you raise $1.3M from your rich friends?
im only asking because im gathering some statistical data
I wouldn't eat at any of this chain's places even if you put a gun to my head and threatened to pull the trigger. Obviously a damage control puff piece based on absolutely what...maybe *a month* without yet another sickening outbreak of disease and evidence of food supply chains that are obviously beyond this management's ability to monitor for cleanliness? If this piece was to be done at all, it should trumpet years of not making anyone sick, not just 4 weeks or so, or that "We were THE BEST!!!... In 1993!!!!".
