Those who were craving a Chipotle burrito for lunch today were met with an unexpected obstacle: all 2,000 of the food chain’s locations are closed until 3:00pm local time due to a company-wide meeting about food safety.
However, Chipotle feels bad for ruining your lunch plans, so, to make up for it, text “raincheck” to 888-222 and receive a free burrito coupon within the next few days.
It appears this company-wide food safety meeting is in reaction to headlines about major outbreaks connected to the food chain. Does the free burrito promotion put Chipotle back in good faith? Who knows—but it sure is a nice gesture.
