Chipotle Mexican Grill opened its first restaurant with its digital drive-thru, called a Chipotlane, in Canada in Port Coquitlam, BC.
To date, Chipotle has approximately 280 Chipotlanes located in the U.S., which allow guests to place their orders in advance via the Chipotle app or Chipotle website and simply drive up to grab their meals.
Chipotlanes differ from the traditional Chipotle layout by increasing access and convenience with a speedy and seamless guest experience. Chipotle currently has 25 restaurants in Canada and plans to open 3 additional locations in British Columbia and Ontario before the end of the year.
"We are excited to provide Port Coquitlam guests the option to grab their digital Chipotle orders without ever leaving their car," says Anat Davidzon, managing director, Chipotle Canada.
