Listen up Chipotle fans! You will now have to pay a few more cents for your burrito bowls but it’s to help pay for an increase in wages.
Chipotle has decided to raise prices by 4% to cover a recent wage increase for its employees.
So let’s break this down for everyone… It’s a 4% price increase aka your $10 order will now go up by 40 cents for your food.
Initially they did not want to increase the price of food but said, “it made sense in this scenario to invest in our employees and get these restaurants staffed, and make sure we had the pipeline of people to support our growth.”
