If you have ever wanted to dive into a delicious burrito bowl or devour some chips and guacamole but you didn't want to leave the comfort of your car, you are in luck. Chipotle is finally adding drive-thru lanes to their restaurants.
Chipotle is trying to move us into the future by adding drive-thrus to its existing locations, but the twist is that you won't be able to order at them. They'll be used to furnish burritos ordered online or via its app. And since you're a busy person who also knows their salsa preference, this will probably make your life easier.
There are already drive-thrus at two Chipotle locations in Ohio, and one each in Tennessee, Texas, and Massachusetts. More are in the process of rolling out across the country, with one coming to Virginia for sure, according to CNBC. A digital order tends to take 12 minutes to complete, but the idea is that most customers will be placing lunch and dinner orders hours ahead of time and just swing by to pick them up.
While digital orders only make up about 10% of their business, the company believes that with this "new" innovation the numbers will increase. More info about when and where more drive-thrus will come after a special investor call on June 27.
