There is a catch with Chipotle’s significant change to deliver “craveable food” faster.
The days of Chipotle serving tortillas are over as the restaurant chain introduces new changes to offer high-end “craveable food.”
The fast-casual restaurant is launching a brand-new location that is distinct from what Chipotle typically provides.
In actuality, the new eatery doesn’t even go by the name “Chipotle.”
The mega-chain and Kitchen United Mix are collaborating on a new project they are calling “Farmesa.”
Before going live in March, it will debut with a condensed menu and a small number of hours.
The new idea will encourage better service, according to Nate Lawton, vice president of New Ventures at Chipotle.
“We think there’s a chance to serve delicious, crave-worthy food every day, and we’re excited to implement this new idea,” Mr. stated Lawton.
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
In Santa Monica, California, on Third Street Promenade, the new location will debut.
The biggest modification is that Farmesa will now serve all meals in bowls.
Each bowl will include two sides, one of five sauces, a topping, and one protein served with grains or greens.
Farmesa bowls will cost anywhere between $11.95 and $16.95.
The full menu will feature dishes like Everything Spice-Crusted Ora King Salmon, Classic Santa Maria-Style Grilled Tri-Tip Steak, Whipped Potatoes, Golden Beets, Sprouted Cauliflower, and Sweet Potato Chips.
“Wе will bе ablе to rеach a largе numbеr of consumеrs, lеarn quickly, and еvolvе our concеpt and mеnu so that wе can dеlivеr on our goals bеforе еxpanding by launching Farmеsa in thе Kitchеn Unitеd Mix food hall in Santa Monica,” said Lawton.
Ordеrs can bе placеd by customеrs at on-sitе kiosks, through DoorDash, or with UbеrEats.
