Back in late July, we told you Vancouver’s first Chipotle Mexican Grill had its grand opening scheduled for September 26th.
With any opening there will be delays, and Chipotle let us know via email the grand opening of the Vancouver location has been pushed back to Wednesday, December 12th of this year. It’s disappointing, we know, but of course good things come to those who wait right?
We previously confirmed Chipotle’s Vancouver address to be on 818 Howe Street, formerly the location of an Urban Barn.
If you’re wondering about the sustainability of Chipotle Mexican Grill, you can be rest assured they will stick to their motto and source their beef, chicken and poultry locally. For their Toronto Chipotle locations, the company gets their organic meat from Beretta Family Farms, located just outside King City.
As for Vancouver, there are numerous organic grass-fed farms that operate in the Lower Mainland, so it shouldn’t be a problem for Chipotle to decide where to get their ingredients from.
