We're all about preparing food without added colors, flavors, or preservatives (other than
lemon or lime juice, which can be used as preservatives — though we use them only for taste).
Just genuine raw ingredients and their individual, delectable flavors. We source from farms rather than factories,
and spend a lot more on our ingredients than many other restaurants.
We wouldn't have it any other way.
Great ingredients deserve great preparation. Morning to night, our skilled crews
use classic cooking techniques on the meticulously sourced meats and produce
that are delivered regularly to each restaurant. It's no coincidence that our founder
and CEO is a classically trained chef.
In 2013, Chipotle made headlines for becoming the first national restaurant chain to voluntarily
disclose the presence of GMOs in our food. In 2015, we succeeded in our quest to switch
to serving food made only with non-GMO ingredients.
