Chipotle Facts and Statistics

Here are the more interesting Chipotle facts and statistics I was able to dig up recently. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.

Chipotle Facts and StatisticsPlease note that some of these Chipotle stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
