The beloved Chipotle is moving its headquarters from its hometown of Denver to southern California. If you're from SoCal and Chipotle is your life, this is probably really exciting news for you!
The burrito chain announced Wednesday that work done in its Denver and New York offices will be either moved to its new headquarters in Newport Beach, California or taken over by its existing office in Columbus, Ohio over the next six months. The Denver and New York offices will then be closed.
The CEO of the burrito giant, Brian Niccol, says the consolidation and the move will help drive sustainable growth and position the company to compete for top talent! This comes as Chipotle has been trying to rebuild its business after a series of food safety scares.
There are mixed feelings about Chipotle moving from NYC and Denver to Newport Beach!:
Chipotle now has over 2,400 restaurants across the country. Will this move to California be a beneficial one for Chipotle?
