Chipotle introduces pizzas

  • Chipotle is expanding into something more than just rice and beans: The chain is now expanding into a "fast, casual" pizza chain. 

    The first Pizzeria Locale opened in Denver this year and the company is planning on opening two more restaurants in the city. 

    The chain prepares pizzas in less than two minutes and offers 10 pizzas as well as individual combos for customers. "Opening Pizzeria Locale using a model similar to Chipotle allows us to make extraordinary pizza, made with high-quality ingredients accessible to everyone," the company's CEO said. 

    Chipotle also has Asian restaurants in Los Angeles and Washington so this is not the first time that the company has tried to offer its customers something other than Mexican food.
