Chipotle To Hire 15,000 Workers In The US

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc has said that it will hire 15,000 workers in the United States, as the fast-casual burrito chain benefits from strong demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move comes approximately five months after Chipotle said that it planned to add 10,000 more people to its more than 85,000-strong workforce. It now employs approximately 94,000 people, most of them in the United States.

Strong Sales, Jump In Revenue And Planned Restaurant Openings

Fast-food chains have seen sales remain strong during the pandemic as customers crave comfort food and order in more. Chipotle posted a 14% jump in revenue in its latest reported quarter.

In October, Chipotle said that it will open approximately 200 restaurants. As of September, the company had over 2,700 restaurants.
