Chipotle opening next week...

The new Chipotle location near McKnight-Siebert Shopping Center will open on May 8.

This Tattler heard the business is owned by McDonald's but I'm not too sure how accurate that is. I did some sleuthing and saw on the Internet that McDonald's owns a majority of stock in the company. Once again, I'm not too sure how true this is.

Anyone know the real deal about Chipotle?

Working to keep you posted...

At a job interview last week, I heard that McDonald's owned Chipotle at one time, which seems to imply that they no longer do. So, I'm not sure. I'd like to know though. I won't be able to resist Chipotle, even if it is owned by McDonald's. Maybe it's best that I never find out! I'm looking forward to another vegetarian dining option in the area, and one that I can walk to, technically.

Yes, McDonalds owns Chipotle. Too much of a money maker to sell it.

McDonald's doesn't own Chipotle. At one time they were stock holders but not anymore. Chipotle is it's own thing and is a GOOD thing. Don't worry!

I recently heard Jack in the Box owns Qdoba. Any truth to that?
