DENVER, Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) is ending summer on a high note, launching direct delivery powered through DoorDash, which allows customers to get Chipotle delivered without ever having to leave Chipotle's app or website. And to celebrate, Chipotle fans get free delivery on any order of $10 or more for a limited time.
"Fans have long been requesting Chipotle delivery, and as part of our commitment to make it easy for our customers to get the delicious food they love when, where and how they want it, we're rolling out our own delivery service powered through DoorDash as the last mile delivery partner," said Curt Garner, chief digital and information officer at Chipotle. "We're proud to be among the first fast casual chains to offer this delivery service and are excited to kick it off with this special offer for our customers."
To celebrate the launch of Chipotle in-app delivery, free delivery will be available on all orders of $10 or more placed through the Chipotle website or app for a limited time. Chipotle customers love the ability for deep customization online, and now they can get the same level of personalization for delivery. Whether it's doing half and half proteins, light rice or extra cheese, fans can now get Chipotle delivery exactly the way they want it.
Making the Chipotle experience as accessible as possible is a top priority for the brand. Chipotle evaluated numerous delivery partners before ultimately deciding to expand its relationship with DoorDash, who is powering Chipotle's new delivery service, based on their ability to get Chipotle fans the real food they love quickly while maintaining the highest quality. Chipotle delivery is now available in all 70 markets at the over 1,800 Chipotle restaurants that DoorDash currently serves.
"We're excited to expand our momentous partnership by powering Chipotle's in-app and web delivery experience," said Christopher Payne, chief operating officer of DoorDash. "Our expanded partnership leverages our strong logistics platform, which enables Chipotle to further the brand's commitment to make its delicious food available to their customers wherever and however they want it."
The availability of this new delivery service is part of Chipotle's plan to grow its digital offerings to make the real food customers love more accessible. This latest innovation comes on the heels of several other digital enhancements and pilots including mobile shelving units and a digitally enabled second make line.
Customers can check out this new service and enjoy free delivery by visiting order.chipotle.com or the mobile app.
