Chipotle Expands Into Pizza Business

Following sky-high growth in its core business, Chipotle Mexican Grill detailed plans to expand into a pizza concept with a model emphasizing service and speed. The company launched Pizzeria Locale in Denver in May with two partners and is exploring options for more locations. Like Chipotle, Pizzeria Locale lets customers customize their meals. With a bake time of less than two minutes, the pies are ready more quickly than it takes to bake a standard frozen pizza. Story
