Chipotle Mexican Grill to raise prices
DENVER, Colo. — The Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant chain plans to raise its prices for the first time in nearly three years.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the company announced this week that prices on all menu items will go up as a direct result of food inflation.
The prices of beef, cheese and avocados have all increased, but company officials said they don’t expect to increase menu prices too much.
The increase will reportedly be in the mid-single-digit percentage range. Officials said the change will go into effect over the next three to six months.
The Denver-based chain has locations in Greensboro and Winston-Salem and specializes in gourmet burritos and tacos.
