Chipotle Plans to Double Its Use of Local Produce
June 30, 2011
While taco trucks will always be the first stop for authentic tortilla-bound meals, fast food chain Chipotle does a respectable job bringing consistently tasty burritos to the masses. What’s cool about Chipotle, as GOOD has noted before, is that it puts serving high-quality, fresh, and, more than ever, local food at the center of its business strategy. Just last week the chain announced plans to double the volume of locally grown produce served, from about 5 million pounds in 2010 to more than 10 million in 2011.

This kind of business strategy will increasingly become good business as well as good PR as shipping costs rise.June 30, 2011 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #450104
guess it is Chipotle for dinner tonight!June 30, 2011 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #450105
If 68 cents of every dollar spent at a local business stays in the local economy, and only 43 cents of every dollar spent at a national/chain business stays in the local economy, where does Chipotle fall?
Furthermore, if Chipotle is using sour cream made in Ohio, but a local restaurant is using sour cream from outside the state, which option is the best choice for someone looking to support local businesses?
Lots of interesting gray area here in the old local vs chain debate. ;)July 2, 2011 12:32 am at 12:32 am #450106
Is there a Chipotle type restaurant that’s local? If so, I need to check it out! I had Chipotle almost every day when I was pregnant.
In the scenario you described, I’d have to go with whichever place has better tasting food and service.February 20, 2014 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #450107

So can/will a person even really process that much food AND do not chew it at all.
Just seems like such a waste to me.February 20, 2014 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #450109

I knew before I even googled that she would be small/thin. It’s amazing that so many lighter weight people have dominated this “sport” in the past few years.

Chipotle Has Stopped Serving Pork At Hundreds Of Restaurants
JAN. 13, 2015, 7:47 PM 163,940 24
Chipotle says it stopped serving pork at hundreds of its restaurants after suspending a supplier that violated its standards. Chris Arnold, a spokesman for the Mexican food chain, told The Associated Press it was the first time the company stopped serving a topping for its burritos and bowls. He said Chipotle learned of the violation by the supplier Friday through a routine audit and did not have a timeline for when carnitas would return to affected stores, about a third of its total base.
