Chipotle confirms with us directly, “We are scheduled to open a location in Chattanooga at some point this fall. That’s all I have to share right now.”

Still working on where the new location is going.

Spokeswoman Regina Wu tells us, “We are currently scheduled to open a location in Chattanooga at some point this fall. That’s all I have to share right now but I am happy to circle back with you when we get more details.”

We also checked permits filed in the city of Chattanooga online, but didn’t see anything that specifically mentioned Chipotle, or that gave any indication where the franchise might be located.

This is a developing story. Depend on us to bring you more details as we get them.


Chipotle opened its first restaurant in Denver in 1993 and now operates more than 2,200 restaurants.

Chipotle offers a menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in an interactive style allowing people to get exactly what they want.

The founder, Steve Ells, established Chipotle with the philosophy that fast-food can also be good food and takes pride in serving high quality food without added colors or preservatives. The Food with Integrity program focuses on using ingredients that are sustainably grown and naturally raised with respect for the animals, the land and the farmers.

Customers line up in an assembly line and select the perfect ingredients for their meal as they watch the staff prepare it.
