Okay, so you still might be thinking about that new Vancouver Chipotle Mexican Grill location opening at 818 Howe Street (the former Urban Barn location), but now we have some exclusive news to share about the scheduled opening date.
Louisa, a representative from Chipotle told us the scheduled opening date will be Wednesday, September 26th. Of course with any store opening there could be delays, but as of now that date is when Vancouver will get its first taste of Chipotle. Mark your calendars, Vancouver!
Chipotle has over 1200 locations, with the majority in the U.S. and others in Canada and England. What makes their restaurants great is their CEO, Steve Ells, is a huge advocate for natural, organic and sustainable ingredients. He is so passionate about this, in 2009 he testified before the U.S. Congress to try to eliminate the use of antibiotics in ranching.
