Treating Those Who Teach: Chipotle Announces Buy One, Get One Free Offer for Teachers

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In celebration of the important contributions made by teachers, Chipotle
Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) is offering a special, one-day,
buy-one-get-one (BOGO) promotion to all educators. From 3:00 p.m. to
close on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, Chipotle will host a Teachers’
Appreciation promotion where teachers, faculty and staff at schools and
universities across the country can receive a BOGO with a valid school

“Chipotle appreciates the educational community and all they do for
their students, day in and day out,” said Mark Crumpacker, chief
marketing and development officer at Chipotle. “This is a small — but
tasty — gesture from us to them to say thanks for their contributions
to our classrooms and communities.”

The BOGO is valid for educators and staff at all levels, including
pre-school, elementary, middle and high school, university and
homeschooling parents who present valid identification recognizing them
as staff or support on May 2. It is available for in-restaurant orders
only and is not valid for online, mobile, fax or catering. There is a
limit of one free entrée item per educator customer with the purchase of
an entrée item of equal or greater value.

Chipotle has long been a champion for education and literacy. The
company has provided reading rewards for libraries across the United
States’ summer reading programs, offers tuition reimbursement to their
employees and partners with Guild Education to provide discounted
tuition programs for employees as well.

Earlier this year, Chipotle also unveiled “RAD Lands,” an unbranded,
educational video series for kids about food and where it comes from,
available through Discovery Education. The program gives teachers and
parents tools to educate children on the benefits of eating fresh food,
the importance of caring for our environment and how to create healthy,
tasty snacks.

Steve Ells, Founder, Chairman and CEO, started Chipotle with the idea
that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience.
Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos,
burrito bowls, and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients,
prepared using classic cooking methods and served in an interactive
style allowing people to get exactly what they want. Chipotle seeks out
extraordinary ingredients that are not only fresh, but that are raised
responsibly, with respect for the animals, land, and people who produce
them. Chipotle prepares its food using whole, unprocessed ingredients
and is the only national restaurant brand that uses of added colors,
flavors or other additives typically found in fast food. Chipotle opened
with a single restaurant in Denver in 1993 and now operates more than
2,200 restaurants. For more information, visit
