What is Chipotle?
Chipotle was founded in 1993 by Steve Ells, a culinary school graduate who wanted to create a restaurant that offered fast food with integrity. He opened the first Chipotle in Denver, Colorado, with a simple menu of burritos and tacos made with fresh and natural ingredients. He also adopted a philosophy of “food with integrity”, which means sourcing ingredients from farmers and suppliers who respect animals, the environment, and the people.
Today, Chipotle has more than 2,800 locations in the US, Canada, UK, France, and Germany. Chipotle serves more than 3 million customers per day and has over 88,000 employees. Chipotle also has an online presence at www.chipotle.com where you can order online and get delivery or pickup. Chipotle also has a mobile app that lets you order ahead, pay with your phone, and earn rewards.
Chipotle offers a variety of dishes that are inspired by the flavors and traditions of Mexico. You can choose from different types of meats, such as chicken, steak, barbacoa, carnitas, or sofritas (a plant-based protein), which are cooked on an open grill and seasoned with spices. You can also choose from different types of beans, such as black beans or pinto beans, which are cooked with onions, garlic, and spices. You can also choose from different types of rice, such as white rice or brown rice, which are cooked with cilantro and lime juice. You can also choose from different types of salsas, such as fresh tomato salsa, roasted chili-corn salsa, tomatillo-green chili salsa, tomatillo-red chili salsa, or queso blanco (a white cheese sauce). You can also add cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, or fajita veggies to your dish. You can then wrap your ingredients in a flour tortilla or put them in a bowl, or make them into tacos or salads.
Chipotle also offers various sides, drinks, and desserts to complement your meal. You can enjoy chips and salsa, queso blanco, or guacamole as a snack or appetizer. You can also drink water, soda, juice, tea, coffee, beer, or margarita to quench your thirst. You can also treat yourself with a chocolate chip cookie or an apple crisp for dessert.
