Chipotle Mexican Grill
Chipotle first opened its doors in 1993, the goal was simple: to serve high quality, delicious food quickly with an experience that not only exceeded, but redefined the fast food experience.
Chipotle had 16 restaurants (all in Colorado) when McDonald’s Corporation became a major investor in 1998. By the time McDonald’s fully divested itself from Chipotle in 2006, the chain had grown to over 500 locations. With more than 1600 locations, Chipotle has a staff of more than 45,000 employees.
Chipotle has locations across the United States

Who Makes Hiring Decisions
All Chipotle locations are owned by Chipotle and are not franchises. That means that the hiring decisions are made primarily by the local managers following guidelines from the corporate headquarters.
The Best Way To Secure A Position
Applying at your local Chipotle and convincing the management to hire you is your best bet to secure a position.
Applying in person and explaining your conviction face-to-face generally is much better than simply filling out an application.
If you can get a referral from another employee at that location you will also be helping yourself out tremendously.
