With all the growth Foley is experiencing lately, we need a Chipotle!
If you haven’t heard of the fabulous restaurant “Chipotle Mexican Grill,’ it is a casual dining establishment spread out all over the world including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, and France. They specialize in making gourmet burritos and burrito bowls. The first Chipotle was founded in 1993 in Denver, Colorado. The restaurant took the place of a former ice cream shop called “Dolly Madison Ice Cream.” In 1999, the founder, Steve Ells, learned how livestock was raised in America and proposed a plan to get their supplies from a better perspective.

In my opinion, Chipotle is the best restaurant in the entire world! The reasons why I believe they’re so awesome is because:
1) Great value
2) Reasonable pricing
3) Fun atmosphere
4) Food that tastes so fresh it’s unbelievable
5) You choose what you want
6) Numerous option on the menu
During the tourist seasons in the summer and fall holidays, there are thousands of visitors from around the world that come to the Gulf Coast for vacations with their families. They drive down highway 59 and the Beach Express. Theses two busy highways are flooded with tourists trying to get wherever their travels take them. Who wouldn’t want to stop and grab a bite eat at a Chipotle?
Whenever I’m a tourist in a city that is unfamiliar to me, I always ask if there is a Chipotle near by. The funny thing is, on my long list of college requirements, there has to be a Chipotle within or near the university. As a side note, students thrive off of things that supply a great value and offer reasonable prices. Just like in college towns, students in high school can go to Chipotle on a Friday, either after school or on a game day, and have a great meal.
A few months ago, Chipotle opened in Mobile, AL on Airport Blvd. Since then, the restaurant has seen great success in the local area, but for those of us who live an hour away,we feel as if that is a really far drive.
