Chipotle To Hire 15,000 Workers Across North America

Burrito chain Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc said on Thursday 26 January it was looking to hire 15,000 new full and part-time restaurant workers across North America for its busiest time of the year - March to May.


The California-based chain said its staffing remains above pre-pandemic levels, with a global headcount of more than 100,000 employees, and its average hourly wage in the United States is more than $16.

Chipotle's hiring spree comes amid its expansion in Canada and small US towns, with the opening of 43 new restaurants during the third quarter.

Of the 43 new restaurants, 38 have the so-called "Chipotlane" drive-through option - a format the company said was performing well.
