You should avoid our meats (obviously), cheese, sour cream, and chipotle-honey vinaigrette.
You should avoid our meats (obviously). Our cheese is made with a vegetable-based rennet, and our sour cream is 100% cultured cream. If your own personal vegetarian guidelines therefore allow you to eat these dairy items, then that's terrific. If not, then you should avoid them. Please note this information is different for those who choose a vegan diet.
Feel free! Our cheese and sour cream are both pasteurized.
We're flattered. We really are, but we do not actually sell any of our foods in bulk. In order to maintain the shelf life required for retail, we’d have to add preservatives and we don’t want to do that. We're happy to sell you some sides if you'd like.
Our carnitas have black pepper only (no jalapeños or anything like that) and are very mild. Some kids aren’t into trying new things, but we're happy to offer them a sample before they commit to a meal. Just ask us.
Most of our restaurants are open from 11 am to 10 pm every day of the week. This being said, there are a few that aren’t. You can double-check individual restaurant hours by using the location finder at the top of the website. Additionally, we are closed on some major holidays like New Year’s Day, Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And most of our restaurants have limited hours on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Yes we do. Depending on your location, Chipotle Catering offers several delicious options that are perfect for any business meeting, event or party—feeding as few as 6 or as many as 200. We have Taco & Bowl Spreads that are easy to set up and come with everything you need: napkins, utensils, stands, chafing dishes and fuel to keep everything hot. If you need a solution that’s fast and easy, our Burritos by the Box allows you to order a lot of burritos with little effort. Or, when something lighter is in order, try our Chips & Salsa Spread, which comes with all of our salsas and our fresh, hand-mashed guacamole. You can call 1-800-CHIPOTLE to order or click here or more information.

We provide opportunities for K-12 schools, youth community groups, university groups, community gardens and food and sustainable agriculture groups to have in-restaurant fundraisers where 50% of sales during the event go to the group. We also provide in-kind donations for K-12 schools, youth community groups, university groups, community gardens and food and sustainable agriculture groups.
Just go to the Philanthropy section of our website. Please note that we get a lot of requests so we ask for 12 weeks’ notice so we can review them all. If your event is sooner than that, we're sorry we can’t help, but we hope you'll keep us in mind next time.
We participate in Scrip programs, which are a great way for your non-profit organization to raise money outside of our in-restaurant fundraisers. Through Scrip, your supporters can help earn you money by purchasing Chipotle gift cards. Your organization is able to purchase Chipotle gift cards at a discount, resell to your supporters, and keep the difference. Click here to learn more.
Nope. We’re not into franchising. But if you have a recommendation for a location, hit up the Development section of the site. You should also note that we are a publicly traded company on the NYSE. So, you can get a piece of the action by investing in CMG.
Assuming your love of us falls within the generally accepted social constructs of right and wrong, then yes. We love you too. Drop us a line and tell us about how you feel in the Talk To Us section.
We are a publicly traded company so most everything we are allowed to share, we do on the Investor section of our website. Other things, like recipes and internal functions of our company, are things we've dedicated time and resources to and it's all proprietary information. There is some good stuff though so check it out.
Gift cards are available at all US restaurants and at select US retail stores. Gift cards are also available online at www.chipotle.com/gift-cards but may only be redeemed at U.S. Locations. Chipotle gift cards purchased through any other web site may be fraudulent. We cannot guarantee validity for cards purchased through any means other than those listed.
You can check the balance on any gift card (bought in restaurant, retail, online and for the digital and mobile cards) at www.chipotle.com/gift-cards.
Bulk gift card orders can be placed online. Go to www.chipotle.com/gift-cards.
We can look into that for you, but we need a little more information. Please provide some details.
From Your Receipt: the 16-digit gift-card number,restaurant or retail store where it was purchased, date of purchase, amount added to the card at the time of purchase.
Additional Information: restaurant where redemption failed, date on which the card failed.
Unfortunately, cards are treated like cash and we cannot replace them for you.
We ask for 24 hours notice on all catering spread orders and for Burritos By The Box orders of 20 or more. We’ll prepare Burritos By The Box orders for up to 20 without advanced notice. If you know you want to place an order months in advance, that’s great—we’re happy to place the order as soon as we hear from you.
We don’t offer delivery right now, but we’ve gotten the message loud and clear, and this is something we’re looking into for catering orders.
Our portions for catering spreads are consistent with the portions each person receives in our restaurants. We also include one crispy taco shell and one soft flour tortilla per person so everyone can choose between tacos or a bowl.
You can order by calling 1-800-CHIPOTLE (7am – 7pm MST), or you can place the order directly with the restaurant.
Once you get the food home, it takes about 10-15 minutes to set up. If you have a couple people setting up the order, you should be ready to serve your party in 10 minutes. Yay!
Our catering spreads give you everything you need for your guests to make their own tacos or bowls, but there are no burrito tortillas. Our large tortillas are yummiest when warmed in a tortilla press (and they’re a lot harder to roll than you might think). If you want to provide burritos for a group, check out our Burritos by the Box option.
Right now, catering is designed to serve all of your guests tasty tacos and delicious bowls. We don’t include enough lettuce for everyone to have salads and also don’t include our chipotle-honey vinaigrette.
We don’t currently offer bulk beverage selections, but you can pick up individual drinks at the restaurant.
Chipotle currently doesn’t serve any desserts, so your order won’t come with a dessert option.
No! Your order will include bowls, forks, napkins, serving spoons and tongs. We even include the matches to light the fuel. All you need to bring to the party is water to add to the hotel pans before you light the fuel.
We accept business checks, but not personal checks.
No, not yet. We can only accept payment when you come in to pick up your order. We cannot take your card information over the phone.
Not yet. We’re working on getting a system in place though, stay tuned.
We don’t offer full service catering, and we are unable to send a team out to serve the food (although we’d love to be part of your big day). Our catering is simple to set up though, and easy to maintain throughout your event, so you, your friends and family can enjoy the meal without too much hassle.
Our catering is non-customizable, and we don’t offer specific items in bulk. We do have the Two Meat Spread option that may work for smaller parties, while our Big Spread is a great option for groups who want a little more food. You’re always welcome to ask for both meat options to be chicken if you really, really love chicken. Burritos by the Box is a great option for smaller parties, but comes with set items. If you choose this option, please keep this in mind.
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is created by inserting genes from one species (typically bacteria or a virus) into the DNA of another. This results in a plant with characteristics that wouldn’t occur naturally, such as producing pesticides or the ability to withstand high doses of chemical herbicides.
Currently, GMO varieties of 8 crops are cultivated in the U.S. at commercial scale. These are:
• Sugar Beets
• Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash
Of the eight common GMO crops grown in the U.S., only two were found as ingredients in Chipotle’s food prior to our move to non-GMO ingredients: corn and soy.
Corn. GMO corn flour, corn starch, and a small number of other corn-based ingredients were used in Chipotle’s corn and flour tortillas. We have worked with our tortilla suppliers to remove these ingredients or replace them with non-GMO versions. The white sweet corn in Chipotle’s Roasted Chili-Corn Salsa has always been a non-GMO variety of corn.
Soy. GMO soybean oil was an ingredient in our flour tortillas and used as a cooking oil in our restaurants. Our restaurants now cook with Sunflower Oil and Rice Bran Oil. Our tortillas are now made with non-GMO Canola oil (while canola is often genetically modified, the canola oil in Chipotle tortillas is non-GMO). The organic soybeans used to make the tofu in our Sofritas have always been non-GMO, like all certified organic ingredients.
As part of Chipotle’s commitment to serving Food With Integrity, we believe that the food we serve should be made with ingredients raised with care for animals, farmers, and the environment. We’re doubtful that the GMO ingredients that used to be in our food meet these criteria. Here are the three key reasons.
For the last 21 years, Chipotle has been making high-quality whole ingredients prepared using classic cooking techniques accessible to all. To that end, we want our customers to have access to ingredients that have not been genetically modified.
The meat and dairy products we buy come from animals that are not genetically modified. But it is important to note that most animal feed in the U.S. is genetically modified, which means that the meat and dairy served at Chipotle are likely to come from animals given at least some GMO feed. We are working hard on this challenge, and have made substantial progress: for example, the 100% grass-fed beef served in many Chipotle restaurants was not fed GMO grain—or any grain, for that matter. This is an important start, but we recognize that sourcing meat and dairy exclusively from animals never fed GMOs would be a long-term project that would represent further progress in this area.
Most cheese makers in the U.S., including those who supply cheese to Chipotle, use what is called Fermentation-Produced Chymosin (FPC), which is a vegetarian rennet that is classified as non-GMO by the EU and all existing U.S. state GMO labeling laws. While this enzyme is non-GMO, it is produced by bacteria that have been genetically modified. During the production process, the enzyme used to make cheese is completely separated from these organisms and does not contain any GMO material. The bacteria are classified as “processing aids” because they are not used as ingredients to make cheese. For this reason, cheese made with FPC enzyme does not contain any GMO material. All of our cheese suppliers provide us with documentation of the non-GMO status of the enzyme used to make cheese for Chipotle.
The fountain sodas we sell are typically sweetened with corn syrup, which is almost always made from GMO corn. We offer a number of other beverages, such as organic milk, organic apple juice, and Izze sodas, which are made without genetically modified ingredients. We also provide packets of artificial sweetener for use in the fountain iced tea we serve. That sweetener, like many artificial sweeteners, contains dextrose, which may also be made from GMO corn.
When we decided in 2013 to disclose the GMO ingredients in our food, we undertook a comprehensive review of all of our ingredients to identify those that were likely to be genetically modified. Most of the ingredients we serve—such as jalapeño peppers, red onions, cilantro, and pinto beans—have not been approved for commercial use in genetically modified form in the U.S. In other words, these ingredients can be safely presumed to be non-GMO. In cases where ingredients in our food do exist in genetically modified form, we have moved to non-GMO alternatives. To get assurance of the non-GMO status of those alternatives, we’ve used ingredients that are organically grown (since intentional use of GMOs is not permitted for organic growers), and/or obtained documentation from the ingredient suppliers attesting to their use of non-GMO ingredients. We also ensure that certain ingredients are tested periodically for the presence of GMOs. In some cases, such as sunflower oil, we use ingredients verified as non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project.
It is important to understand that these protocols may not necessarily result in all of our foods being 100% GMO-free. Due to the potential for cross-contamination in fields, facilities or during shipping, it may be that trace amounts of GMOs are present in our food from time to time. For this reason, we identify our ingredients as “non-GMO” rather than “GMO-free” or other terminology that might be misunderstood as a guarantee of absolutely zero genetically engineered content. The United States currently lacks a regulatory definition for “non-GMO” or similar terminology, but private organizations in the U.S. as well as the European Union have put forth standards that allow for food labeled as non-GMO to contain trace amounts (typically up to 0.9%) of genetically modified material.
Not really. While removing genetically modified ingredients from our food took substantial effort by Chipotle in partnership with our food suppliers, we found the cost increases to be less than we initially expected.
Beyond being the first national restaurant company to disclose the GMOs in our food and switch to non-GMO alternatives where applicable, Chipotle has voiced its support for GMO labeling initiatives—such as I-522 in Washington and Prop. 37 in California—because we believe all consumers deserve transparency when it comes to food.
Chipotle is committed to serving our customers the very best ingredients we can find. At the end of the day, we do not believe GMO ingredients make our food better in any meaningful way. This view, in addition to the three reasons mentioned above, is the main reason we believe that switching to non-GMO ingredients was the right thing to do.
Transparency has always been an important part of Chipotle’s vision. We believe that the more people know about where their food comes from, the better. For this reason, we support mandatory GMO labeling laws.
When Chipotle first started talking about GMOs, it was in the context of transparency—we were the first large restaurant company to disclose the fact that there were GMOs in our food, and commit to switching to non-GMO alternatives. Now, we want people to understand more about GMOs, whether they are in our food or not. We believe people should be interested in the food they eat and where it comes from, and make choices that make sense for them and their families.
There are real concerns about the health and environmental impacts of GMO foods. People can debate this topic, but those who have looked into the issue know that it is extremely complex. We believe the implications of growing and eating GMOs must be studied more by independent scientists who do not have an incentive to produce particular results. What we do know is that some of the chemicals and toxins used in GMO cultivation have caused health and environmental issues, and that is at the very least a reason to be cautious. Caution and hysteria are not the same thing.
Growing non-GMO ingredients can benefit farmers in a number of ways. Farmers growing non-GMO version of crops that are typically genetically modified—like corn, soy, and canola—typically receive a substantial premium for their non-GMO crops.
While we are committed to sourcing non-GMO ingredients, Chipotle respects the right of every farmer, rancher and grower to follow practices that make sense for their business, even if they do not make sense for ours. Just as we believe that consumers have the right to know what’s in their food and avoid ingredients they choose to, farmers have the right to grow whichever crops they choose.
There are many resources available online to learn about GMOs, and we encourage everyone to learn more about this issue and anything else that impacts the food they eat. The following links represent a diverse set of views on the topic:
• Non-GMO Project
• GMO Compass
• USDA Report: Genetically Engineered Crops in the United States
• Center for Food Safety
