Chipotle Doubles Down on DoorDash

Print Email

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) shares have made an incredible gain in 2018, and based on the company’s partnerships it could continue to grow even further. The burrito chain originally partnered with the food delivery service DoorDash back in April, but now it seems that Chipotle is doubling down.

Now customers can order burritos directly through the Chipotle app for delivery. And to mark the launch of direct delivery with DoorDash, Chipotle is offering free delivery on orders of $10 or more through September 12.

According to Chipotle, no coupon code is needed to get free delivery, and as with many companies’ promotions.

Chipotle delivery is now available in all 70 markets at the over 1,800 Chipotle restaurants that DoorDash currently serves.

Curt Garner, chief digital and information officer at Chipotle, commented:

Fans have long been requesting Chipotle delivery, and as part of our commitment to make it easy for our customers to get the delicious food they love when, where and how they want it, we’re rolling out our own delivery service powered through DoorDash as the last mile delivery partner. We’re proud to be among the first fast casual chains to offer this delivery service and are excited to kick it off with this special offer for our customers.
